5540 Connecticut Avenue, NW

Thanks to a reader for sending word that The Avenue is coming to the former Tian Tian Fang space in Chevy Chase.  Since the design is by Swatchroom, I’m anticipating a beautiful buildout.   Now coming this Fall but I dig the vision:

    Oh sure… this area finally starts getting SOMETHING just as I am about to move.

    Love the tag.

  • Epic Fail

    I have to agree. Chevy Chase DC and Tenleytown seriously under-perform in terms of retail and restaurants. It would be nice to finally see some better dining options in these neighborhoods.

    Anything NEW would be great. Macon was a good start. As the demographics change, families are more willing to go out more nowadays then 10 yrs ago.

    Surprised they went for this name, given the existence of a (mostly subsidized) apartment building named “The Avenue” on the stretch of Georgia Avenue in Park View.

    • The Prophet

      Not to be snarky, but I doubt that many denizens of Chevy Chase keep track of the names of subsidized apartment buildings several miles away.

    this rendering looks like it was stolen from a New Yorker cover. haha
