The NoMa Business Improvement District (BID) reports that Mill Creek Residential Trust will start construction on Monday on a 603-unit apartment project at NoMa’s northern border with Eckington.

Once complete, the development will consist of three buildings that include 603 apartments, 570 parking spaces, and amenities such as a theater room, a billiards area, two pools, a large fitness center, and two business centers as well as a small park open to the public. The project, which will offer junior one-bedrooms, one-bedrooms and two-bedroom units with an average size of 770 square feet, will be located on Eckington Place NE, just north of Harry Thomas Way (map).

No delivery date was provided, but completion is likely several years out.

    Isn't this in Eckington? Either way, good news.

    Yeah, this definitely is in Eckington. Would someone please adjust the map link to reflect the actual location of this development.

    Kboogy, While the site does fall within what many people consider Eckington, it is also within the formal borders of the NoMa BID (just barely): http://www.nomabid.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/NoMa-Boundaries.pdf We changed the language a little to acknowledge that it's on the border of the two areas. We also updated the map link. Best, Will Smith UrbanTurf

    This is a little bit bittersweet. Great to see more investment coming to the area, but this field is currently the best dog park in the city. Really sad to be losing it!

    After reviewing all the residential buildings listed in NOMA on the Nomabid website - seems there are a LOT of apartments in that 'hood. Realizing it's all about market timing - it's a shame that some condominiums aren't getting built - to create a mix of more permanent occupants along with the apartment dwellers (and yes, I know many people live in apartments for a long time - this is a general statement).
  1. Mark @ MB said at 2:49 am on Saturday March 12, 2011:
    The main problem for condominiums is that there are nowhere near enough buyers in DC who would pay more than $400 psf for a new condominium in NoMa, which is a number too low for most developers given land and construction costs. Apartments make sense (look at the ridiculous asset trade numbers for Senate Square - two sales, a few months apart, the second one at nearly $40m higher) and this just isn't a condo neighborhood yet and no one knows when it will be.

    finally! so good to see this going forward! people get all hung up on the name, but once this is built, it will architecturally feel more of a part of noma than the old residential architecture of eckington. the sad truth is the loss of the dog park, the only park within eckington, or noma. we really could use some park space here. and not just for dogs.
