More Good News for City Market at O Street

“Dear PoPville,

The O-Street Market was put forth by the Administration to be one of 14 infrastructure projects to be fast tracked through the federal environmental review and permitting process. While the federal processes aren’t the only hurdles for this project, I think it’s a great sign that HUD is dedicated to seeing this project through to completion. Exciting news for a community that has been waiting to see this project come to fruition for a long long time.”

Thanks to all who sent links to the White House press release:

“Located in Washington, DC, City Market at “O” Street is a mixed-use property consisting of 400 market-rate residential units, 16,000 square feet of retail space and a 57,000 square foot supermarket with financing under the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Section 220 insured mortgage program. In conjunction with this project and others, FHA has embarked on an effort to streamline the approval process for loans, including review of related federal permits and is working with the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation to expedite the National Historic Trust approval, subject to Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.”

This great news follows word that Cambria Suites Hotel will be a part of the project and will include:

“Reflect, a casual dining and gathering area serving a dinner menu, liquor, wine, beer, freshly prepared grab-and-go gourmet salads and sandwiches, a barista bar featuring Wolfgang Puck® coffee, Cheesecake Factory® desserts and a hot breakfast buffet; Refresh, a state-of-the-art fitness center with an elegant pool and hot tub/spa area; and Refill, a 24-7 convenience store that offers energy drinks, snacks and sundries.“
