Dear PoP – What is the Petworth/Georgia Ave Construction?

“Dear PoP,

Do you know what the plans are for the building next to the Wendy’s and the other vacant lots on Georgia Avenue Northbound? One site has two construction signs up and the ground is already broken. Thanks for any information you can provide.”

Pictured above is the corner of Georgia and Quincy which will be the home to new condos.

Further up the street where you saw the economic development signs will be two projects. Billy Simpson’s (from the owners of Marvin) will open up at 3813/3815 Georgia Ave., NW. I have no idea when it will actually open. I’d guess by 2012. The section a few storefronts up that is a vacant lot is slated to become a restaurant but I’d guess we won’t see anything there before 2013. That’s just a guess, I do hope something comes sooner.

Next to Wendy’s at 3910 Georgia Ave will become mixed income apartments and a health center. It looks like it will be completed in the next couple of months.

Construction on the actually street relates to ongoing Great Streets Improvement Project that will occur over the next 18 months.

  • hooray! gah! i miss petworth so much! maybe i’ll come back!

  • Wow! I had no idea restaurants took that long.

  • a while back the Billy Simpson’s project was supposed to be open within 6 months…but it looks like not a lot has happened. PoP, have you heard any new info from them?

    What about the Tynan coffee – any progress there?

      I think they both are working on a number of projects and those delayed the Petworth projects. That’s just my opinion though.
