D.C. Attorney General Announces Completion Of Settlement Terms in Marbury Plaza Matter
Politics

 

From Valerie Scott: District of Columbia Attorney General Irvin B. Nathan announced today that the provisions outlined in a 2010 settlement agreement the District reached with property owners and tenants at the Marbury Plaza apartment building in the 2300 block of Good Hope Road, S.E., have been satisfied.

After the District received complaints about failed air conditioners, leakage, and plumbing problems, the property owner -- A&A Marbury LLC -- agreed to make systemic repairs, including fixes to the cooling and heating system, boilers, roofs, and windows.  District agency representatives met with tenants and the property owner to ensure that the goals in the agreement would be accomplished. 

The District has received certification that the property owner has made the required improvements at the apartment complex.  The property owner reported spending more than $5 million on the project.  As a result, the Attorney General has approved the release to A&A Marbury LLC of more than $400,000 of tenant rent money that had been held in a D.C. Superior Court registry.

Attorney General Nathan praised the outcome and the work done by then-Attorney General Peter Nickles to put the agreement in place.  Nathan said, “This was an unusual case that required the collaboration of various District agencies working together to achieve an important common goal. We hope that living conditions at Marbury Plaza and the relationship between the tenants and the property owner will only continue to improve.”
