MRP Realty Inks Lease for Ginormous Pickleball Complex in DC’s Bryant Street Development

Washington, DC-based MRP Realty — developer of commercial, residential, industrial and mixed-use real estate in the DC region — has closed a lease to Kraken Kourts on a 70,000 square-foot complex that will house 16 pickleball courts, tavern, and DC’s only indoor roller-skating rink.

The complex will open in January 2023 in MRP Realty’s Bryant Street NE development in the Edgewater neighborhood. The multi-generational gathering space will feature family programming and courtside cabanas for cheering on matches with an assortment of dining and beverage options. Pickleball leagues will launch in late January along with clinics and private lessons.

“MRP is focused on engaging with and adding value to the Edgewood neighborhood in every way possible,” said Zach Wade, principal with MRP Realty. “Pickleball has really resonated at the new Edgewood Rec Center, and we believe adding these courts plus the skating rink will provide valuable active engagement for families in the neighborhood and across the DMV.”
