Georgetown Race Aug. 8

August 1, 2021

Join the 2021 Georgetown 5K & Half Race August 8 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm.

 

In partnership with John P. Mayhugh Foundation. The John P Mayhugh Foundation (JPMF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization established in February 2017 to honor the memory and the legacy of its namesake, John Powell Mayhugh. John was born to Kevin and Colonel Mary Lowe Mayhugh (Ret.). John, who battled issues from secondary post-traumatic stress that led to addiction, tragically died at the age of 27 from an opiate drug overdose. With the death of her son, it became evident to Mary Lowe that the national narrative must change and our leaders and communities must take a more holistic approach to “brain health”.  Along with John’s friends and colleagues, Mary Lowe and Kevin established the Foundation to address systemic barriers to recovery and improve outcomes for those suffering from post-traumatic stress (PTS) , traumatic brain injury (TBI)  and addiction.

Georgetown Suites on the Market Again

July 6, 2021

Varsity Investment Group bought the former hotel consisting of two buildings, at 1111 30th St. NW and 1000 29th St. NW, for $33.5 million in late 2020 and have since renamed it the Oxford at Georgetown.

 

According to Washington Business Journal, Rawles Wilcox, Ryan Ogde, and Jared Emery with Edge Multifamily Capital Markets have been retained to market the properties, with an asking price of about $72 million to $73 million — $50 million to sell the 29th Street property and $22 million to $23 million for the leasehold interest on the 30th Street property, on which 33 years remains. 

 

The conversion of the seven-story buildings to apartments is expected to be complete this summer, according to information from Edge.
