MRP Realty Breaks Ground on First Phase of NoMa MXU Project

Developer MRP Realty, along with CSG Urban Partners, Taylor Adams Associates and SK+1 Architecture have broken ground on the first phase of Northwest One, a three-phase, 740-unit, mixed-use project in Washington D.C.’s NoMa neighborhood.

The project’s first phase will deliver 220 total units, including 150 affordable units, 77 of which will be for residents earning at or below 30% of AMI, and 73 units for those earning at or below 60% of AMI. The final 70 units will be market rate. The project will also include a large courtyard, grilling stations, clubroom, fitness center and children’s playroom. The project in total will consist of approximately 740 residential units, including 518 affordable units and 22 permanent supportive housing units.

“Northwest One represents two major commitments we made to residents: investing more in affordable housing and fulfilling the goals of the New Communities Initiative,” said Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser. “This was a community-led effort that helped move this project forward as we finally approach the finish line. We look forward to when the construction is done and when we can cut a ribbon and welcome former Temple Courts and Golden Rule residents back to the neighborhood.”
