  • It looks great, but it sure did mess with my commute this morning!

  • Once the new Safeway opens I’m hoping a lot of the planned developments start to take off around Georgia Ave. There is a lot of room to grow along it.

    • I hope so, the growth cycle has been mighty slow… The other day I was wondering why the Bank of America won’t reopen it’s drive thru, or at least put another location in Petworth. We’re also still missing a nice (large) street level coffee lounge (like starbucks) and there are tons of underutilized retail opportunities all over GA Ave. For shame.

        Harrar has much better coffee than starbucks, and they roast their own beans on-site. And it does have a little seating area on the other side of the sales counter.

    • +1. Really hoping the new Safeway will help the Georgia Avenue corridor in Pleasant Plains, Park View, and Petworth — heck, in Brightwood too, for that matter — really take off.

  • Looks great!

  • Love them both!!!

  • Not into the tiny prison-style/medieval-castle-style side windows on the red building(s?), but it seems OK otherwise. Definitely more attractive than the apartment building shown adjacent to it.
    I like how the 5-story apartment building is turning out — the brick and the window design make it look a bit like a converted older/industrial building.

  • Both look really nice! Anyone know the prices? Are these condos or rentals?

  • GA Ave has a LONG way to go. It always surprises me when I decide to take the “scenic” route and drive directly down GA instead of 16th. You know there are nice pockets a block/two off the street, but it still feels so shady with very little foot traffic. Hopefully it can continue its facelift.

  • They couldn’t have butchered those street trees some more? Definitely asking DDOT what the hell happened there.

  • Georgia Ave reminds me of 14th when I first moved to DC in 2001. There was not one high end place on 14th, I think it has real potential, but give it 10 years.
