Trinity Plaza broke ground last week, at a ceremony convened by George Brown, S. Patrice Sheppard, Eugene Sheppard, and Ward 8 Councilmember Marion Barry. Once completed, it will include 49 affordable housing units and 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. I’ve reached out to get more info relating to the specifics of the project, but have yet to get a response. Stay tuned . . .

UPDATE • My sincere and emphatic thanks to Patrice Sheppard & Elizabeth Askew Everhart, who both graciously (and very pleasantly) supplied me with the Groundbreaking Ceremony Program (PDF), descriptive info, and a final rendering of Trinity Plaza (below). ]

 

Trinity Plaza, located at 3939 South Capitol Street SW, is a 49 unit new construction building with 5300 square feet of ground floor retail and three stories of residential units above.  The 70,000 square foot building will meet 2011 Enterprise Green Communities Criteria, which focuses on reduced energy and water consumption, as well as indoor air quality.  The building will feature 14 one bedroom units, 33 two bedroom units, and 2 three bedroom units.  The project will take 13 months to build and anticipated to be complete in December 2014.
