Update Of The Catholic U Development, Monroe St. Market

by Shani on October 2, 2012

It’s been a while since we’ve done an update on the Catholic U development, so let’s see what’s new… Check out these really snazzy renderings of the common area spaces planned for the Monroe St. Market  apartment complex. This is the lounge area.

The first apartments will be opening Spring 2013 and there will be a mix of  studios, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom apartments. But, right  now the crews have been busy upgrading the sewer and water lines on Monroe and 7thStreet, among other things. Perhaps the most noticeable progress is in the C Block since both buildings are now wrapped with insulation, and windows have started to be installed. Pretty soon we should start seeing the brick facade installed. Inside the buildings, “rough-ins” are starting. A rough-in is a preliminary stage of laying plumbing and electrical lines prior to building, electrical, or plumbing inspections. Here are some recent photos of the C block.

As a reminder, here is what the C block is supposed to look like when complete:

Wow, this looks snazzy! I’m surprised by the number of fireplaces … this place IS going to have central heat, right? ;)

Will the ground level of the buildings be commercial, or just amenities for the apartments?

The ground level along Monroe Street will be commercial (stores, restaurants, etc.) for the public. The ground level in the walkway between the two buildings will be an artswalk with something like 28 artists studios that will also have retail fronts so the artists can sell their work. I am assuming that a good amount of the retail will be geared towards college students and we know already that there will be a Barnes and Noble and a Starbucks.

It looks like an office building. Brookland needs new construction to fit into the architecture of whats here or it will end up looking like all the other areas of the city that have the SAME kind of construction. Disappointing.
