    Anyone know when the Whole Foods in Pentagon City (on S. Eads) is opening? Looks like it’s coming along.

      Not sure, but it has got to be getting close though.

      To many in DC, Pentagon City might as well be Manassas. Funny to think, when I moved here in the early-2000s, it was normal to drive out to Arlington for groceries. DC has come a long way in relatively short time.

        Pentagon City is great – so many things close to each other: Nordstrom, Macy’s, Costco, Harris Teeter & Target down the road. I don’t get when people say they never go to VA, “its too far”. I work across from FBI on Penn Ave and at lunchtime, I can get to Pentagon City in 10 minutes, I have timed it.

          Ha, you’re the first person I’ve ever heard describe Pentagon City as great. That mall is a nightmare and the rest is just blandly depressing.

            Pentagon City is a quick drive from DC and right off the Yellow and Blue lines. How is that too far?

            All malls are nightmares, hence the boom in online shopping and the so-called ‘death of shopping malls’.

            When was the last time you were at Pentagon City Mall? The owner is re-vamping the facade and making some pretty significant upgrades to the interior. The new elevators look great!

        I would never make a special trip out there from DC, but I work in Crystal City so the Pentagon City Whole Foods is practically on the way home.

        Still a lot of DC tags at Pentagon City Mall and Potomac Yard shopping center.

          I used to work at the Navy Yard, and my coworkers would always go out to Potomac Yard or Crystal City for lunch. A lot of people still have this mindset that you only go to the city to work, nothing else.

    Wow, didn’t know there were so many in-development. There’s the one in Shaw as well.

    • And H Street. They’re all racing each other.

    Is it just me or is navy yard starting to look a modern version of those soviet apartment developments.

    Wow, how big is Park Chelsea? In this photo the building looks huge.

      and ugly!

    Wasn’t Park Chelsea supposed to open in “late 2014”? What the heck is going on over there? Given WC Smith’s History on that corner, I wouldn’t expect a Whole Foods opening until at least 2018.
