Development partners MRP Realty, Ellis Development Group and JBG SMITH have kicked off construction of their mixed use scheme, The Wren. Located at 965 Florida Ave. NW in Washington D.C., plans call for a 300,000 square foot building with a ground-level Whole Foods store and 433 residential units, of which 132 will be affordable. The project was designed according to the District’s new land disposition rules and involved widening the sidewalks around the site and building a continuation of Bryant St. NW. “The Shaw neighborhood has been a major focus for JBG SMITH,” said Kai Reynolds, co-chief development officer of JBG SMITH. “Participating in the neighborhood’s transformation from night-life driven to a hub for dining and retail has been remarkable. And now, with the addition of The Wren, even more people will have the opportunity to enjoy Shaw and call it home.”
