  • All those front facing units- does that mean the bedrooms will be window less? making them studios/junior one bedrooms? Though I like the color, wish it had setbacks. Definitely didn’t need to be a box. I guess Trader Joes makes up for this. Plus the other buildings going into Union Market have a lot of variety to compensate for this one.

    • what about the outside of the building gives any indication that the bedrooms will be windowless? maybe you should wait for floorplans to be posted on their website.

      I know they got a lot of pressure in designing this whole area to keep it “boxy / warehouse” aesthetic.

      • This is always the case in DC, where height-itis makes capitalizing on every foot of height a must. If people (and the zoning code) could look past the measured height of a building’s apex and judge the building on its specific design, there would be less boxiness.

    • There will be so much light coming in from those huge front windows that by the time you’re ready to go to sleep, you’ll be really sick of sunlight.

  • TJ’s is printing money in D.C.

    • They can take all of my money.

    • I have to say, I have never once stepped foot in one in DC. I don’t know why. No real reason, I just never think to go there. Then again, I almost never go to Whole Foods either. That said, this one is not far from me, so maybe I’ll give it a spin.

      I had no idea the building was this far along. I don’t think I knew it had even broken ground. So that’s exciting to see.

  • Does liquor license indicate whether alcohol will be available for consumption on premises (a la bar at new H street Whole Foods? Or just for grocery sales (beer/wine)?

    That’s the real scoop the people want.
