The biggest news to come out of Cleveland Park as of late is the Petco on Connecticut Ave. next to the Metro being replaced with an urban-style Target, similar to that of the new Target in Bethesda.
The new Target is set to take up 17,820 square feet with additional space on the lower level. The store doesn’t yet have an opening date, but it will join the ranks of other small format stores like the first in College Park, MD, Rosslyn and the one that is set to open soon in Ballston.
Cleveland Park is actually set to get a new Italian restaurant. Cucina Al Volo, who has locations in Union Market and Adams Morgan, is moving in soon. The move-in is a welcome one, after many restaurants left the neighborhood in the past year.
