2438 Market Street, NE

Ed. Note: Since it comes up on all Chick Fil A stories, allow me to include this post from a June 2018 story written in Huffpost titled: If You Really Love LGBTQ People, You Just Can’t Keep Eating Chick-fil-A.

From a press release:

“Chick-fil-A has selected Jessie Chesson as the local franchise owner of the chain’s Fort Lincoln restaurant as hiring of up to 100 new Team Members is under way in preparation for the projected May grand opening.

When Chesson’s stand-alone Chick-fil-A opens at 2410 Market St. NE in Dakota Crossing, it will be the latest step in her career as a Chick-fil-A franchise owner which began when she opened the chain’s location at 3100 14th St. NW in November 2015. She also is the Operator consultant to the licensee Chick-fil-A location inside Union Station. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I’m in escrow on a house in Fort Lincoln area and to be fair, we put in the offer after my husband saw the place and I was making the offer site-unseen. After our home inspection today I’m FREAKING OUT. I can’t get a good feel for the neighborhood. Some houses had bars on windows, there was a shady character on one street, and then $500k homes on the next.

Could you post soliciting folks in the neighborhood for feedback? We have to make a decision by Wednesday! Wondering about safety, grocery stores, and general feel for the neighborhood.

Thanks so much for helping avoid a disaster!”

Thanks to Ryan for sending from Dakota Crossing aka Costcoville:

“This is clown parking bro. Dude just rolled in and took FOUR SPOTS. Frickin MD drivers #amirite

I mean, in fairness the parking lot was pretty empty so he wasn’t inconveniencing anyone. But the principle of it…”

“Dear PoPville,

Heads up for anyone headed CostCo in NE… they’ve cleared out most of the meat due to the heat and anything still available is ‘insulated’ under cardboard. Other open refrigerated sections are shielded with pull-down shades. Pretty wild ahead of the holiday. This was around 6:30pm Monday night.

More photos after the jump. (more…)

“Trammell Crow Company (TCC), along with Fort Lincoln New Town Corporation and CSG Urban Partners, announce Starbucks, Five Below, Vitamin Shoppe, Panda Express, and T-Mobile have signed long term leases at The Shops at Dakota Crossing [South Dakota Ave NE and 33rd St NE], a 430,000-square-foot retail center located in NE Washington, D.C. All stores plan to open in early 2017. These new leases bring the center to nearly 90 percent leased.

“We are very pleased to see the Shops at Dakota Crossing continues to attract high quality, national retailers that add to the best-in-class roster of tenants already operating in the center and provide the kind of services the residents of Ward 5 want and deserve,“ said Adam Weers, Principal within TCC’s MidAtlantic Business Unit.

“Fort Lincoln has become one of the most sought after neighborhoods in the District and this impressive set of new tenants in the Center proves that it has also become one of the District’s premier retail destinations,” added Michele V. Hagans, President and CEO of Fort Lincoln New Town Corporation.

The retail center is anchored by Costco, Lowe’s and Dick’s Sporting Goods, which are currently open, and Marshall’s and PetSmart, which will open this fall.

sporting goods

“Dear PoPville,

I was wondering if anyone had any updates on the opening date for the new Dick’s Sporting Goods at Dakota Crossing. The parking lot is now set and they have sectioned it off to divide it from ongoing construction. There are huge signs saying Opening Soon, but I can’t find a date…”

They started hiring sales associates for this location on July 25th so it’s gotta be real soon! Standby.
