The Avenue at Park Morton Grand Opening on Friday, September 21

Georgia and Newton Pl, NW

From a press release:

The Avenue at Park Morton will celebrate its grand opening with a ceremony and reception on Friday, September, 21 from 12:30pm – 2:30pm. The Avenue is located at 3506 Georgia Avenue, NW.

The Avenue is a new, 83-unit mixed-use community designed as the first phase of the Park Morton New Communities Initiative. A 100% affordable rental building, the Avenue includes a mix of 1 and 2-BR units, amenity spaces such as meeting rooms, lounge, fitness center, underground parking, and ground floor retail. The Avenue is an energy-efficient and sustainably designed development and is targeting certification through the Enterprise Green Communities program.

Remember the Newton Variety Mart and Car Wash? See what it looked like in Feb. 2011 and a heartbreaking reward poster from that time here.

For the record, I think the building looks fantastic. Do you like the way it turned out?
