The developer that bought Georgetown's Washington Harbour last year has big plans to improve the space.

MRP Realty's $30 million upgrade that includes "updated offices, new restaurant space and a rebuilt outdoor plaza featuring a novel upgrade: an outdoor skating rink," reports the Washington Post.

The skating rink, at a proposed 11,000 square feet, would be the largest in the city. Robert J. Murphy of MRP Realty told the Post the company hopes to draw more holiday shoppers away from M Street, helping Washington Harbour restaurants stay open longer.

"A revamp of the K Street complex would also help MRP turn the page from the flood in April, when 10 to 12 feet of water rushed into the plaza and poured into its restaurants and parking garage," the Post says.

The developer is currently facing a $5 million class-action lawsuit for not activating the floodgates.
