Word is filtering my way that One Hill South
, the 380ish-unit apartment building at Half and I that opened not quite two years ago, has now signed CVS
as its first retail tenant.
The ubiquitous drug store will be occupying the building's entire I Street frontage, including the corner space at Half and I. (I don't know the square footage, but it ain't small.)
While it will be the neighborhood's second CVS--the other one being about five blocks away at New Jersey and M--one could say that this portion of the neighborhood is a bit under-served at the moment, unless you want Korean fried chicken.
I'm also hearing that another lease in the building is going to be announced Any Minute Now.
As for the second phase of the Ruben/Related joint venture, the 300ish-unit apartment building temporarily dubbed 950 South Capitol
(and not Two Hill South, which is just a criminally missed naming opportunity) is going to be the next skeleton to sprout from the ground before too much longer.
No word on the estimated timeline for CVS's arrival.
