Adding Residential Units at 4100 Georgia Avenue NW

In the MAR, residential units have been added to the recently completed apartment building located at 4100 Georgia Avenue NW. This building also has ground floor retail which contains a Yes Organic Market. The apartment building has 72 units as noted on their website. Now the individual unit numbers needed to be obtained. The unit information was found by typing in the address 4100 Georgia Avenue NW, Washington, DC into the USPS Zip Code lookup. The units being:

  • 201 - 212
  • 301 - 312
  • 401 - 412
  • 501 - 512
  • 601 - 612
  • 701 - 712

Each floor has 12 units and there are six floors with units (floors 2 - 7). Thus 12 * 6 = 72, which confirms the 72 units mentioned on the apartment building's website. Lovely!

Keeping Up With New Development

It is vital for the MAR to keep up with new development in the city. To reach that goal many sources are applied such as:

  • Address Applications from DCRA
  • Recent satellite / Aerial imagery
  • Building Permit Database
  • Other Databases
  • Site Visits
  • Site Plans from Developers
  • Reading DC Blogs

Today, I went for a site visit to the Capitol Quarter Development located around 4th Street SE & K Street SE. The Capitol Quarter Development is a large project involving multiple city blocks with hundreds of rowhouses. While visiting the site I was confirming and notung the location of addresses and where construction is occurring. Later in the day I was able to update the MAR live using the MAR Maintenance Tool.
