350 Florida Ave, NE

Gargantuan Grocery Store Week concludes with another crowd favorite – Trader Joe’s!! (We’ve hit the grocery store trifecta this week – Whole Foods, Wegmans and Trader Joe’s, whoever had that ticket can pick up their winnings at Solly’s at 3pm today.) This is the Trader Joe’s we first learned about back in November. The liquor license placard lists hours as 8 am – 10 pm – STAY TUNED!

    All those front facing units- does that mean the bedrooms will be window less? making them studios/junior one bedrooms? Though I like the color, wish it had setbacks. Definitely didn’t need to be a box. I guess Trader Joes makes up for this. Plus the other buildings going into Union Market have a lot of variety to compensate for this one.

      what about the outside of the building gives any indication that the bedrooms will be windowless? maybe you should wait for floorplans to be posted on their website.

      I know they got a lot of pressure in designing this whole area to keep it “boxy / warehouse” aesthetic.

        This is always the case in DC, where height-itis makes capitalizing on every foot of height a must. If people (and the zoning code) could look past the measured height of a building’s apex and judge the building on its specific design, there would be less boxiness.

      There will be so much light coming in from those huge front windows that by the time you’re ready to go to sleep, you’ll be really sick of sunlight.

    TJ’s is printing money in D.C.

      They can take all of my money.

        Coffee is the new pumpkin.

      I have to say, I have never once stepped foot in one in DC. I don’t know why. No real reason, I just never think to go there. Then again, I almost never go to Whole Foods either. That said, this one is not far from me, so maybe I’ll give it a spin.

      I had no idea the building was this far along. I don’t think I knew it had even broken ground. So that’s exciting to see.

    Does liquor license indicate whether alcohol will be available for consumption on premises (a la bar at new H street Whole Foods? Or just for grocery sales (beer/wine)?

    That’s the real scoop the people want.

    • There aren’t bars like H Street Whole Foods but there is a “Tasting Permit” so you can sample the goods when offered on site.
