Whitecrest Real Estate celebrates the completion and official grand opening of brand-new luxury condominium development, The Heritage, in DC’s Woodridge neighborhood.
The construction of the 6-story property is now complete, adding more contemporary and affordable living options to the community. Whitecrest is also offering buyers up to $10,000 in concessions* for the units which are for sale exclusively by the MG Residential Sales Team.
(Washington, DC) – MG Residential, an arm of Brookland’s Menkiti Group, was joined by Whitecrest Real Estate, to celebrate the launch of The Heritage, a newly developed collection of modern condominiums starting in the mid $300’s. The new development offers 1–2-bedroom units that range from 570 – 1050 square feet. The completion of this project is a major addition to the emerging development of new construction we are seeing in the city’s Ward 5.
“The project was started late 2018 and took over 3 years to complete. Even through the chaos of covid-19, we trooped through as we believed in the project,” said the company’s Director of Design,
Maryam Kazmi. “We chose this project as we believed in the neighborhood and wanted to add value to this area and offer new modern living. This is an emerging neighborhood and we wanted to be part of its story.”
The Heritage lies in the heart of Woodridge, a residential neighborhood located just north of the National Arboretum. This neighborhood is a hidden gem that combines the best of both worlds. The dynamic team of Whitecrest Real Estate always believed in the Woodridge neighborhood, but it was not until they began working in the area, that they realized its true potential.
”We were one of the first very few developers who started to invest in the neighborhood, about a decade ago in 2013 with a boutique-style building. While working in Woodridge, we realized that it is not only a conveniently located and easily accessible neighborhood to various hot spots of Washington DC but also amongst one of the safest and most affordable areas in the city.”
Barnard Hill Park lies in the northwest corner of the neighborhood, providing 22 acres of open green space for walking or picnics. Also, near the neighborhood, the Dwight A. Mosley Playground and Taft Recreation Center has a large playground, several sports fields, a tennis court, and a basketball court. Although Woodridge lies in a residential area, its proximity to the city’s main attractions is what gives this neighborhood its unique flexibility and advantage. This combination makes it a great neighborhood to work, live and start a family.
Whitecrest and MG Residential were joined by many locals and businesses, resulting in a successful community event. Joe Dawson of Mission Mortgage and Lawrence Elliot of Prime Title sponsored the event and were also in attendance.
“We appreciate everyone who attended the official Grand Opening for The Heritage,” says MG Residential’s VP of Sales and top 1% of realtors nationwide, Lashika Mason. “We are truly overwhelmed by the constant outpouring of support from the community.”
The Heritage by Whitecrest on Rhode Island Ave. is on one of the main arteries of the neighborhood, that runs into Washington DC. The luxurious finishes used combined with the extra effort that was taken to preserve the 100-year-old bank façade makes this beautiful building stand out. The Heritage is a well-built, high-end, and eco-friendly mixed-use condo building in a calm and friendly neighborhood that’s truly a rare find in Washington DC. The units are well-designed, efficiently built, and are offered at the most competitive prices available in the marketplace for brand new condominiums.
“This is an exciting partnership with Whitecrest Development,” says top producing realtor and managing director at MG Residential, Anthony Mason. “We are proud to be a part of this project and are looking forward to seeing the impact on the community as we strive to continue to fulfill our mission of transforming lives, careers and communities through real estate.”
