Final Wawa report, for now – they’re coming EVERYWHERE – Check some renderings for 19th Street

At the risk of Wawa fatigue allow me one more because I got a million messages last night including this particularly good one from Petworth ANC Rep Amy Hemingway:

“As a WaWa loyalist and Petworth ANC commissioner on the lookout for economic development opportunities and more grab n’ go food options, I attended tonight’s WaWa event at the Newseum. Growth plan is ambitious and exciting. 30-50 stores in the pipeline once they get beyond their 5-year targets. While I am eager to see how the fancy flagship does at 1111 19th Street, NW, I’m more eager to follow their plans beyond the immediate growth areas. According to John Poplawski, WaWa’s Sr. Director of Site Acquisition & Development, two site selection factors are density and pedestrian traffic all day long. Metro stops are ideal. Let’s start a movement to prioritize the Georgia Ave-Petworth station area!

And thanks to Amy for including renderings of the 19th Street spot:
