Van Ness Square Demolition and Transformation Coming Soon

4455 Connecticut Avenue, NW

Lots of folks have written in asking about the Van Ness Square development plans. One even asked about a Trader Joe’s rumor (I haven’t heard anything.) And for those that missed it, you can read a thorough history of the property here, it was once an “ice palace”! Anyway, the Forest Hills Connection reported:

“Construction begins Fall 2013 and is estimated to take 30 months.

Saul anticipates opening in Winter 2016. There will be 271 luxury apartments (1, 2 and 3 bedroom), 224 below-grade parking spaces, and 10,000 square feet of neighborhood retail, including at least one sidewalk cafe.”
