MRP/Ellis Selected

August 2, 2013

The District selected MRP/Ellis’ bid this week for its parcel at 965 Florida Ave. NW. MRP/Ellis proposal competed with The JBG Cos. — one that included the promise of a Harris Teeter supermarket, a hotel, office and residential across neighboring parcels. D.C.’s decision shocked JBG and some members of the community, who launched a petition asking Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development Victor Hoskins to rethink that decision. Hoskins released a community letter late Thursday explaining his thinking, and standing his ground. (WBJ)
