From a press release:

“Tishman Speyer today announced it has secured $150 million in construction financing from RBC Capital Markets, as well as all permits necessary, to move forward with its reinvention of Mazza Gallerie in Washington, DC.

Working with acclaimed Danish design architects 3XN, Tishman Speyer is transforming the obsolete shopping mall in Friendship Heights into a dynamic mixed-use development featuring approximately 320 rental apartments and 90,000 square feet of retail.

Tishman Speyer will replace Mazza Gallerie’s existing three-story above-grade structure with a new seven-story building with a striking, undulating masonry façade set atop a new glass enclosed retail podium. Tishman Speyer will maintain the existing below-grade concourse retail and parking structure. Demolition of the existing structure is underway and completion of the residential portion and first wave of new retail openings is anticipated in 2025. Read More

Thanks to Megan, Stephanie, Andrea and Donald: “So excited to have this in the neighborhood!! With so much closed/closing in the area, it’s nice to see something the residents can use! It’s the old Paul Liquor at 5205 Wisconsin.”

“Is there any other information/details about The Dog Coop?”

Another reader writes: “the owner of the new daycare has been walking our dog and many dogs in the area forever. She’s truly wonderful and I can’t wait for her daycare to open, because I’ve never met anyone who cares more about making sure pups are happy and well cared for!”
