From the Mayor’s Office:

“Mayor Vincent C. Gray today announced the signing of the lease for Walmart at the Skyland Town Center at the intersection of Good Hope Road, Naylor Road, and Alabama Avenue SE in Ward 7. The lease signing secures the nation’s largest retailer to anchor the long-awaited project that also will feature neighborhood retailers, restaurants and residential units.

“I want to thank our development partners, Rappaport and W.C. Smith, as well as Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development Jeff Miller for working tirelessly to ensure this final piece needed to begin construction of Skyland Town Center was completed,” said Mayor Gray. “I am delighted that Walmart has committed to opening a store in a neighborhood that has been underserved for too long.”

More than a decade ago, the District embarked on a path to acquire and revitalize the blighted Skyland Shopping Center, which for years was poorly operated and never met the retail needs of the residents of Wards 7 and 8. With more than 40 parcels to acquire spread out over 15 different property owners and 29 different tenants, residents had little luck with their efforts to coordinate redevelopment of the shopping center on their own.

In 2002, the District, through the National Capital Revitalization Corporation, intervened and began its acquisition of the Skyland site. The Gray Administration worked to clear all legal issues and resolve all tenant-relocation concerns. Mayor Gray, city officials and members of the development teams held a ceremonial groundbreaking event at Skyland to highlight the start of construction work in March. To date, more than 90 percent of the site has been demolished. The District has invested approximately $40 million in the project for the purposes of acquisition, tenant relocation, property management and legal fees.”

It’s worth taking a look at the comments to the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post. For those readers who are perhaps new to the District, note that “EOTR” refers to the property being “East of the River”, specifically on the east side of the Anacostia River, which includes DC Wards 7 and 8.

Even folks who know what “EOTR” means still may not really have a good idea exactly where to find the Hillcrest neighborhood. One might start on Pennsylvania Avenue in Capitol Hill, say around Eastern Market, and head eastward. Just before you head into the PG County suburbs, turn south.

Hillcrest is the community that current DC Mayor Vincent Gray calls home. The neighborhood is known for a range of styles of detached single family houses, from bungalows to colonials to porch front farm houses to four squares. You can see the list of settled sales of detached homes since the beginning of the year here. Sold prices ranged from $125,000. to $599,000. Current active listings range from $119,000 to $649,000.

The listing agent was Leon Williams of Long and Foster Real Estate, Inc. Alex Schindlbeck of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage represented the buyer in this transaction.
