Back in Nov. 2012 demo started on the stinky Safeway at 3830 Georgia Ave, NW. The hole has been dug and now the crane has just gone up. Thanks to Evan for sending the shot above and Claire for sending the shots below. And thanks to everyone else who sent emails.



  • Can we still call it the Stinky Safeway when it is shiny and new? Because that was my favorite Safeway nickname.

    • How about Sexy Safeway II?

      Or Sexier Safeway?

        Can we not just call it “Safeway”?

          You can.

          I will continue to call it “that evil place.”

            Well that sounds like a personal problem. I doubt it’ll catch on.

            Exactly. It’s a grocery store.

      • Souped-up Safeway!

        • Allison

          Shiny Safeway!

      Once it’s done we’ll call it Sassy Safeway.

    I hope this takes some pressure off the Columbia Heights Giant!

    I think something’s wrong with your RSS Feed. A lot of the pictures lately have been rotated 90 degrees, and proportionally distorted.

  • Do you have any other shots of the crane?
