Prince Hall Freemason and Eastern Star Charitable Foundation announced today that CVS Pharmacy has signed a lease to occupy 9,900 square-feet at 1000 U Street, NW. The opening is scheduled for the second quarter of 2007.I think the influx of retail nearby is a great thing for our neighborhood's renewal. Welcome, CVS!
Madison Retail Group leased the space on behalf of Prince Hall Freemason and Eastern Star Charitable Foundation.
“CVS Pharmacy is a great addition to the building and the ongoing revitalization of the U Street corridor,” said Jeff Edelstein, Associate of Madison Retail Group. The site was previously leased as office space and many years ago housed a Giant grocery store. The building is ideally located on top of the eastern entrance of the U Street-Cardozo-African American Civial War Memorial Metrorail Station.
“This transaction will have a positive impact on meeting the everyday needs of the growing U Street residential Community,” said Loretta Cataldi, Vice President of Madison Retail Group. The site will be CVS’s first location along the U Street corridor.
Madison Retail Group also represented CVS in the transaction. CVS currently has fifty stores in Washington, D.C.
