Washington Business Journal Coverage of the O Street Market
Thanks, Anon, for pointing me to this article in the Washington Business Journal online about the progression of the O Street market redevelopment. The approval process is ongoing, and the developers will soon seek tax increment financing from the city on this $260 million dollar project bounded by 7th, 9th, O, and P Streets. Plans call for a new Giant Food grocery store, a 180-room hotel with luxury suites, 300 condominiums, 300 apartments (200 market rate and 100 senior affordable housing units), 7,500 square feet of locally owned retail, and 700 parking spots, mostly underground (and available for church-goers on Sunday mornings!).
