Marshall-Ridley Housing Naming Contest


Great Things are Happening in the Marshall-Ridley Choice Neighborhood

The first new housing in the Marshall-Ridley Choice Neighborhood will be under construction in spring 2021. Two new multi-family buildings will be constructed on Jefferson Avenue between 27th and 29th Streets. The buildings will contain 81 mixed-income apartments and townhouses as well as a community room, an open air terrace and retail space.

The buildings, currently called Carrier Point I and Carrier Point II, need a new name and we would like your help in selecting a name that reflects the history, culture and exciting future of the Marshall- Ridley neighborhood.
