Brookland’s future Arts Walk, up close

Monroe Street Market will be Brookland’s first sizable transit oriented development. It’s immediately adjacent to the Metro station, and will have a great mix of shops, apartments, artist studios, and community spaces. It’s exactly the type of development smart growth advocates like.

The main plaza of Monroe Street Market will be called the Arts Walk. I was lucky enough to get a brief tour of its construction this past weekend. Here are a few pictures.
