Georgia and Randolph St, NW

New signs went up yesterday announcing the name of the apartment building going up over the new Petworth Safeway – The Swift:

“Get with it. It’s brand new apartments right above the new Swift Safeway and just a block from the Metro in Petworth, Washington, DC. It’s the city at your feet. With panoramic views of the Washington Monument and National Cathedral—and easy access to all of DC. It’s jam-packed with amenities, from the downstairs Safeway and concierge services to a fitness center and a rooftop terrace. It’s designed to give your way of life a boost, styled with modern finishes and fully equipped with sleek appliances. It’s more than just a floor plan. It’s yours to make your own—just pick your apartment size from studios, one, and two bedrooms.”

Ed. Note the website says coming Spring 2014, but the sign out front says Summer 2014.

So I guess they hope the new nickname for the Safeway will be the Swift Safeway? I guess it’s better than Stinky Safeway

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.

Then, it’s time to dust. Lexi starts with high-touch surface areas (think: refrigerator, dishwasher, counters, microwave). One area she sees often neglected is the bedroom — and it makes sense. Heavy furniture is difficult to move around, but it’s important to really get in there so dust doesn’t affect your sleep.
