D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser recently joined Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton and community leaders to officially break ground at the Walter Reed Marketplace in Northwest.

Upon completion, the Marketplace will consist of a new Whole Foods Market, retail, condominiums, apartments and a co-living residential community, the mayor’s office said, calling the project another example of how the city is using federal land for resources and amenities its residents and communities need.

The Hartley will serve as the centerpiece of the Marketplace and include 323 rental units, with 32 affordable units.

Bowser also recently celebrated the groundbreaking of two additional buildings — the Kite House and 1155 Dahlia Street.

Upon completion, the Kite House will include 109 for-sale units, including nine affordable units, and 11,000 rentable square feet of retail.

Bowser’s office aid the residences at 1155 Dahlia Street will include 60 co-living units designed to help diversify and amplify available housing in Ward 4. The property will also boast 248 fully furnished co-living bedrooms, with 38 designated as affordable.
