As reported by the WBJ, Menkiti Group (a Brookland-based realty and development company) has announced plans to redevelop the 3300 block of Rhode Island Avenue into a mixed-use development.
As proposed, Menkiti is planning to restore the three properties and to create a dozen residential units and 10,000 square feet of commercial space in the buildings. On tap is a 5,500-square-foot hardware store and 12 residential units at 3300 Rhode Island Ave., a 3,110-square-foot ReCreative Spaces arts incubator at 3308 Rhode Island Ave., and a 1,360-square-foot cafe by Englert at 3310 Rhode Island Ave.
