4th at Water St., Looking West-Northwest (see more)

A mere 11 years after the notion was first floated, there is apparently finally a signed contract to bring a Whole Foods grocery store to 800 New Jersey Avenue SE. Though the chain isn't expected to make an official announcement until next month, a representative of WC Smith told Monday night's ANC 6D meeting of the news.
Note that the store won't be at the Park Chelsea, WC Smith's apartment building currently under construction at 880 New Jersey. This will be a new apartment building just to the north, running along the to-be-rebuilt H Street between New Jersey and 2nd, immediately south of the freeway. It's expected to have 330ish units and all the usual amenities. But with construction not currently expected to start until spring 2014, and the timeline of the buildouts of both the building and the interior work for the store, you probably won't be buying your quinoa there before 2017.
This is a deal that has started and stopped more than once, the last time around in 2011 when Smith looked for an $8 million tax break for the project, an idea which died a few months later.
The neighborhood's other grocery store, Harris Teeter, is currently under construction at the Twelve12 apartment project in the Yards, and is now expected to open in the fall of 2014.

Thanks God you're back on the beat. There are so many things springing up who can keep track. But Whole Pay Check (Whole Foods) very exciting!


JD says: (10/22/13 2:34 PM)
I'm still kind of dipping my toe in, so am not yet considering myself 100% back. But I couldn't pass up this tidbit.


BillP says: (10/23/13 3:54 PM)
nice to see some JD chit chat, i've missed it!

- i might rarely go to a whole foods but as a homeowner i'm thrilled one's coming to the neighborhood for obvious reasons.

- work's begun in earnest on the toll brothers owned site next to velocity, do we know whether this building is going to be condo (like velocity) or apartment (like toll brothers' loree grand project in noma)? just curious.

- saw an article in zagat dc about bluejacket opening "within a month" but they've lied to us so many times before about their timeline i'm not buying it until the first beer actually hits the back of my throat! remember it was going to be open at the start of baseball season?!?!?!?



JD says: (10/23/13 3:57 PM)
- Yes, even for someone north of the freeway like me, the arrival of Whole Foods is more about everyone *else* being excited (and raising my property values!) than any interest I'll have about shopping there. (though I'll be able to see it from my stoop)

- Pretty sure the Toll Bros units will be rentals.

- There's apparently a preview party at Bluejacket tonight, but until I can be officially turned down for a table, I won't consider it open. :-)



JD says: (10/23/13 4:06 PM)
The Post says it's opening Tuesday:

JES says: (10/23/13 5:04 PM)
The Toll Bros units are definitely rental. They told us at a meeting last month with Velocity owners.


The Hoff says: (10/24/13 10:29 AM)
I just ate a handful of grass out of excitement to this news.


JD says: (10/24/13 10:52 AM)
Just wait until you have the privilege of paying for top-dollar handfuls of grass!


The Hoff says: (10/24/13 5:26 PM)
I almost let out a loud organic laugh at that, JD but my carbon dioxide levels are high. Gotta reduce that footprint!


BillP says: (10/28/13 10:27 AM)
It's definitely worth noting that this project came to fruition all by itself, i.e. WITHOUT an $8M taxpayer giveaway! #freemarkets
