We thought readers would like to see photos from this year’s Brookland “Celebration of Lights”, which took place last night, on Sunday, December 11th. The highlight of the annual event is the trolley tours, driving past Brookland’s best and most elaborate light and decoration displays. This year the trolley tours departed again from the Mekiti Group Plaza, where neighbors mixed and mingled, enjoyed holiday treats and a fire pit, and kids watched holiday movies. We took the photos below – enjoy! (You need flash to see the photos, if you can’t see them, click here.)
The 22nd annual “Celebration of Lights” will be Sunday, December 11th. From 5:00–8:00 pm there will be trolley tours, driving past Brookland’s best and most elaborate light and decoration displays. (Check out the photos we took on the tour in 2014.) This is always a super fun neighborhood event and in recent years the trolley runs have sold out very quickly, so we recommend that you buy your tickets in advance. The trolley tours will depart from the Mekiti Group Plaza at 3401 8th Street NE. Check out the Celebration of Lights website for more info and the link to purchase tickets. From the website:

We have been following the affordable senior housing building called The Girard Street Senior Residences from initial discussions through the groundbreaking last summer. The building is located at 1545 Girard Street NE and consists of 25 one bedroom apartment homes specifically designed for seniors. The building was developed via a partnership between local development firms the Menkiti Group and Dantes Partners and financed by utilizing a combination of 9% Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC), gap financing from the DC Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), and private first trust debt. From a press release:
Each apartment home offers a generous open floor plan and energy-efficient, individually-controlled heating and cooling systems. Unit kitchens are equipped with energy efficient appliances and granite countertops. Residents will have access to a wide variety of amenities including a large community lounge featuring a sun room and library. A wellness area provides recreational space for exercise and yoga. The lobby level features multi-functional seating areas for gathering and relaxing as well as free WiFi connectivity. A landscaped courtyard provides opportunities to enjoy the outdoors without leaving the comforts of home. The Girard Street Apartments’ location adjacent to the Rhode Island Avenue NE commercial corridor places public transportation, shopping and dining options all within easy reach.
The Grand Opening and ribbon cutting for the Girard Street Senior Apartments will be Thursday, June 16 from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM and will be attended by government officials like Mayor Muriel Bowser, Ward 5 Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie and others.
If you are interested in the apartments contact Dantes Partners at (202) 536-5777.
