My tour of jaw dropping gigantic new developments continues – next up is City Market at O and even in this early stage it doesn’t disappoint.  First here’s a few details from the folks at City Market at O:

“The Numbers:
90,000 square feet of retail, including 78K Giant

Dates:
Giant Opening: November 22
Initial Apartment move-ins – Dec – Jan
Cambria Hotel Opening: late spring

The entire project is Leed Silver, from the Giant to the hotel to the residences

The Shaw neighborhood: Roadside worked to keep the look and feel of the neighborhood in a number of ways. They opened up 8th street to continue the tree lined street through the center of City Market at O, they buried all loading for the Giant, hotel and retail/restaurants underneath the project; and they worked with older residents to ensure they had the opportunity to stay in the area by building an affordable 90-unit residence. This is a rare opportunity for seniors to enjoy intergenerational, modern apartment living in a desirable area of the city at an affordable cost.”

Lots more info on the project here.

One of the coolest new apartments in the District:
