965 Florida Ave, NW

A tantalizing comment from yesterday’s Shaw’s Day of Greatness discussion:

“Your wish is about to be granted… Over 50,000 sf of Foods fit for the Whole neighborhood just north of V Street… expect an official announcement VERY soon. The poster below is spot on with location [965 Florida Ave, NW] but the opening will be sooner than 4 yrs…”

Ed. Note: This was the once hoped for Harris Teeter location. If everything is green lighted, how long do you think it would take to get this from vacant lot to new building?

And nearby @DCITYstyle tweets us the below great photo next door to the 9:30 club:

“A little morning tour of North End Shaw’s newest apt @ATLPLUMBINGDC.”
