Anacostia Home To Be Featured on HGTV'S "My First Sale" This Sunday

This Sunday, January 9, the greater Anacostia community will be featured on HGTV’s My First Sale.  The show, which will air at 1 p.m., will follow Anacostia homeowner David Garber as he and Darrin Davis of Anacostia River Realty attempt to sell Garber’s renovated Anacostia home.

“As a Realtor, this coverage is absolutely great for the Anacostia community,” Davis said in a press release.  “We are introducing the world to this great community and hopefully dispelling some misperceptions.”

Check out some of the photos of the house.  Would you buy it?

With Rent Strike Over, Marbury Plaza Apartments in Anacostia Ready for Change

Changes are coming to the Marbury Plaza apartment complex in Anacostia.  After years of major problems, from units covered in mold to electrical outages, the building is primed to make tons of renovations after the buildings' owners agreed to supply five million dollars for repairs, ending a rent strike by residents that lasted two years.  Marbury Plaza is a set of two high-rise apartment buildings located in the 2300 block of Good Hope Road in Anacostia.

The settlement money will be used to help fix the buildings' air-conditioning, heating, and security systems.

Marbury Plaza has been around since 1968, when it constructed with the hopes of being a place where the young, up-and-comers in Anacostia could live at a higher rate than other buildings in the neighborhood. 

However, since then, Marbury Plaza has deteriorated as the buildings' owners ignored residents' quibbles.
