On Wed. the Washingtonian got more details about the refurbished Union Market coming to 1309 5th Street, NE:
Edens president Jodie McLean says that the project is partly inspired by San Francisco’s Ferry Building: a multi-purpose community space that joins permanent restaurants and vendors with a rotating lineup of artisans, entertainers, and farmers. Union Market will eventually expand to about 40 vendors, a third of which will be permanent, plus outdoor farmers markets on certain days.
You can see a list of all the vendors who’ve already signed on here.

Also earlier this week we learned that CityCenter DC coming to the old convention center site downtown will be getting a specialty food market possibly Eataly. And we’ve already heard about some plans for CityMarket at O at 7th and O St, NW. And finally we’ve also learned about the Navy Yard/Capitol Riverfront development, particularly the Boilermaker Shops.
So, knowing more details about these projects, for the Friday Question of the Day – I’m curious which big development project you are most excited about:
Union Market at 1309 5th Street, NE?
CityCenter DC at New York Avenue NW, 9th Street NW, H Street NW, and 11th Street NW?
CityMarket at O located at 7th and O St, NW?
