Walmart Only Opening 1 out 6 Planned Stores in DC in 2013

Washington Post reports:

The first Wal-Mart to open in D.C. will likely be at the corner at Georgia and Missouri avenues in Northwest, where the retailer and developer Foulger-Pratt demolished a former Chevrolet dealership and plan to build a stand-alone store that should open by the end of 2013. They expect to break ground this spring.

No other Wal-Mart site has been issued building permits, according to the company. Developer JBG Rosenfeld has applied for building permits to begin a mixed-use apartment-retail complex at 801 New Jersey Ave. NW, where a ground floor Wal-Mart could open in early 2014.

We recently judged the Georgia Ave rendering here.

It looked like progress was being made at the New Jersey Ave, NW location… Do you guys think that hole in the ground is for a different project?
