DC Developer Betting Big on Barracks Row Block in Capitol Hill

The Murillo Malnati Group (MMg), a DC developer based in NW DC, is betting big on a block of Barracks Row on Potomac Avenue, SE. They now have 3 different residential projects underway or in planning from 816 – 820 Potomac Avenue, SE.

Europa at the corner of L & Potomac. Other Phases of the project can be seen at left.

Europa, a 46 unit apartment project using a vacant parking lot at the corner of L Street and Potomac Avenue, SE, will be at 818 Potomac Avenue, SE. The building will include underground parking for 47 cars and a mechanical bike storage system for 25 bikes.

The gap next to the tower holds the 14 unit addition.

Phase II of the initiative on the block is an as-yet unnamed project with requested changes filed to the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) in August 2018.  This will be a 33 unit overall project at 816 Potomac Avenue, SE, consisting of a 14 unit addition to be added onto an existing 19 unit project on the site. There will be no car parking on this site and residents will use the bike parking noted at Europa.

Details will follow on what’s planned at 820 Potomac Avenue, SE. Since 2001, MMg Development has designed, restored and developed over 40 single-family and multi-family projects in Washington, DC in neighborhoods including Dupont Circle, Logan Circle, Woodley Park, Columbia Heights, Mount Vernon Square, Gallaudet Park, Capitol Hill, Shaw, Wesley Heights and others.
