A studio at Brookland Works.
On Monday, UrbanTurf took a look inside Monroe Street Market, whose first apartment building, Brookland Works, is currently welcoming move-ins.
Brookland Works, located at 716 Monroe Street NE (map), has a total of 152 apartments, with 26 set aside as artist studios. Amenities include a gym, conference area, urban mountain lodge-style lobby, and art room.
In addition to the apartment buildings, Monroe Street Market has opened up their retail destination. The Art Walk is a pedestrian walkway lined with small shops intended to be filled with artisans and small boutiques; 20 of the 27 spaces have been leased, and workers seemed busy painting, scrubbing windows and moving in goods on Monday. The strip has an organic, artsy feel. Barnes and Noble, Potbelly, &Pizza, and a restaurant from the owners of Meridian Pint will also be moving in.
To kick off the placemaking development, developers Bozzuto will be hosting a festival, “Art in the Mix,” on October 26th in collaboration with Cultural DC. Street-style photographer Scott Schuman, aka The Sartorialist, will be attending to talk about his newest book and hold a book signing, and attendees can sample food trucks, art stands, music performances and a beer garden.
The Cornerstone and Portland Flats will both be opening up in the next three months, bringing the total number of apartments delivered at the project to 562. Check out the photos below.
