“We have just listed an exciting new condo project in Edgewood/Brookland that was designed from the ground up to the Passive House standard which is the highest level of energy efficiency and occupant comfort. The Baptisia was built by local DC developer True Turtle and, if we are successful once tested by third party certifiers, it would be the first market rate Passive House in DC. The green construction details are too numerous to list but you can read about them in depth here. With the addition of solar it will use less energy than it produces annually. It is a totally unique building… one we will see more of in the coming years, but this one is a pioneer for sure.”

Thanks to Terry for passing on

The purpose of this event is to provide the Mt. Pleasant community with an in-person forum to learn more about their home value, the assessment process, and tax programs to reduce their tax bill. We feel this is a timely event because real property tax assessment notices are being mailed to District property owners this week. The event is scheduled to be held on Thursday, March 7 from 6:30 – 8:00pm. The presenters include:

Deputy Chief Financial Officer Keith Richardson
OTR Director of Operations Eva Liggins
Chief DC Appraiser Olufemi Omotoso
Tax Relief Specialist Jeffrey Toney

We will also have additional staff on hand in case attendees have other questions related to OTR. This is a great opportunity for OTR to directly engage with Mt. Pleasant”

So far in DC in 2018, there have been 430 co-op units sold, so they are fairly common here. Understandably, cooperatively owned units often get dismissed by prospective buyers due to four figure monthly fees. (Monthly co-op fees were brought up in comments on last week’s GDoN-R.) (more…)
