Summer 2017: Ground Breakings To Ribbon Cuttings

The dog days of summer are usually a perfect time for a little rest and relaxation, but at Marshall Moya things have been busily heating up for months as construction is underway on a number of firm projects throughout the DC metro area and beyond.

Soccer fans will be excited to cheer their team on to victory when the franchise’s new home, Audi Field, opens for DC United’s 2018 season.  After a groundbreaking ceremony in February attended by MLS Commissioner Don Garber, Mayor Muriel Bowser, Audi of North America president Scott Keogh, head coach Ben Olsen, and players, fans, staff and partners, construction is in full swing at Buzzard Point.  Down the road in Congress Heights, construction is just beginning for the new, state-of-the-art Entertainment and Sports Arena, the training facility for the Washington Wizards and new home for the Washington Mystics. The unique 5,000-seat arena, a hybrid of NBA training facility and community amenity, will house concerts and special events in addition to NBA and WNBA players.

Also in the District, in Dupont Circle, the national headquarters for Zeta Phi Beta is getting its final touches before officially re-opening later this month. The headquarters was originally purchased by the sorority in 1959. Crossing the river into Prince George’s County, the new MGM luxury resort at National Harbor is making positive waves as an epicenter of entertainment. Marshall Moya designed the National Market, the venue’s emporium of good eats, which opened in December. Construction is now underway for a new Fink’s Jewelry store, which will be located in the resort’s conservatory, and will be opening in time for early winter holiday shopping. On the institutional side, work is underway at Armstrong High School in Washington, DC and College Achieve Central Charter School in New Jersey, as both are preparing for the new school year to begin.
