Representatives from The Bozzuto Group, Abdo Development, and The Catholic University of America were joined by Mayor Vincent C. Gray and District of Columbia Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie yesterday evening to celebrate the official Grand Opening of Monroe Street Market in the Brookland neighborhood of Northeast D.C.
During the celebration, a plaza within Monroe Street Market was officially dedicated to Bishop David M. O’Connell, previous president of Catholic University and current Diocese of Trenton, New Jersey.
“Through Monroe Street Market, we have truly created a sense of place within D.C.’s Brookland neighborhood,” said Toby Bozzuto, president, The Bozzuto Group. “It was important to honor Bishop O’Connell because he was integral part of the entire development process. O’Connell Plaza will serve as a testament to all that he did for this development, for Catholic University, and for the community as a whole.”
Located on five city blocks, adjacent to the Brookland-CUA Metro station, and across the street from Catholic University, Monroe Street Market is a $200 million mixed-use development offering distinctive residences, vibrant ground-level retail, and 27 artists’ studios along its Arts Walk, an open air pedestrian plaza.
The Bozzuto Group, Abdo Development, and Catholic University broke ground on Monroe Street Market in November 2011. The development consists of three buildings – Brookland Works, Portland Flats and Cornerstone – encompassing approximately 720 residences, 45 townhomes, 83,000 square feet of street-level retail, 15,000 square feet of artist studio space, and a 3,000 square foot community arts center.
Cornerstone, Monroe Street Market’s vibrant hub, houses the majority of the development’s resident amenities. The community features nearly 20,000 square feet of amenity space, including indoor and outdoor lounges with fireplaces; a 24-hour fitness center with yoga/Pilates studio; lounge, community room, and billiards; E-cafe; outdoor grilling stations; spa-style pool with expansive sundeck; outdoor lounges with bars and grills; as well as lush, beautifully landscaped courtyards.
Monroe Street Market hosts a farmers market every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m from May through November. Operated by Lydia’s Fields, a local farm dedicated to growing organic produce, the market features regional farmers and food producers including Chesley Farms, Upper Crust Bakery, Zeke’s Coffee, Sweet Teensy, Delish Jams & Jellies, and Bonaparte Breads, among others.
