Thanks to all who sent emails about this (and props to TBD’s Sommer Mathis for spotting it first). It’s hard to imagine how awesome this is going to be when completed. City Market at O has released a new blog with rending (above), they write:
Yes, it’s true. Activity is starting soon on CityMarket at O. Roadside picked up the permit for the facade support and Clark has ordered the steel and is planning to start the facade support of the O Street Market building at the end of February. The facade support project is estimated to take up to three months.
In the meantime, Roadside will be finishing its construction drawings for HUD on March 1 and completing the permit process for a project construction start in late summer 2011 if all goes as planned with HUD closing.
The Giant will replace the current Giant at 8th and O St, NW. When this whole project is completed it will be epic. So many good things on the horizon for all over DC!
