Parking comes at a premium in several Northwest DC neighborhoods, but that’s not necessarily the case in Petworth. Many row homes come with their their own parking behind the property or resident-only street parking. Petworth is currently going through a renaissance, with many of the nearly century-old homes being renovated and buyers snatching up properties left and right. It is often much more affordable than other Northwest DC neighborhoods to the south. Georgia Avenue NW is the center of commercial activity, with several restaurants and bars, including popular spots Chez Billy, Petworth Citizen, and Domku. The Petworth Farmers Market is a big hit with area residents, and is open every Saturday from May to October. Two parks offer recreational options…

The National Mall in Washington, DC has 20 million visitors each year. It is the site of kickball, Frisbee, picnics, festivals, protests, and even historic speeches like the one given by Martin Luther King, Jr.
When Pierre L’Enfant designed the layout of Washington, DC in 1791, he envisioned the National Mall as a large, open space extending to the Capitol. During the 19th century, the Mall was covered with vegetation and grazing sheep. Then in the 20th century, the McMillan Plan decided to make the Mall a more ordered landscape to “celebrate the fact that this was the capital of this young nation and that it was grand in scale and orderly,” according to Roger Lewis, an architect who writes for The Washington Post and is professor emeritus at the
A new apartment project in Barney Circle is moving forward. Plans call to replace the existing used car lot at 1550 Pennsylvania Avenue SE with an 81-unit apartment building. The site is at the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue with Barney Circle in the Hill East neighborhood of DC.
The 1500 block of Pennsylvania Avenue is currently home to three-story row houses, and the new apartment project in Barney Circle will follow suit with three stories on the northern portion of the new building. The apartment building will eventually rise to five stories as it approaches Barney Circle, which is the maximum height allowed in the zone.
The penthouse of the new apartment project in Barney Circle will include common roof terraces and a party room. Unit sizes
The Petworth Safeway at 3830 Georgia Avenue, NW closed in September for major renovations. The previous building, one block from the Georgia Avenue-Petworth Metro station, was known as the “Stinky Safeway,” but hopefully the new mixed-use Petworth Safeway development will have a more complimentary nickname.
Years ago, the Petworth neighborhood was promised a replacement for their aging Safeway, but nothing materialized until now. Some residents are not particularly fond of the design of the new Petworth Safeway. They wish that signature architectural elements of the old building, like the arched facade, had been incorporated. But pretty much everyone agrees that the new building will certainly be better than the current 50-year-old one, and are very
The Brightwood Walmart is coming to Georgia Avenue, NW in Ward 4 near Missouri Avenue. It will be the first Walmart to open in the District. The development project began in September 2011, but has been plagued by delays from various opponents.
The new Brightwood Walmart development sits on the site of the former Curtis Chevrolet dealership. After demolition began, residents sought protected status for the site from the Historic Preservation Board. But development continued after the application was denied.
In February, Occupy DC and Respect DC teamed up to stage a demonstration at the Brightwood Walmart construction site. The protest prevented some crews from entering the construction site that day, but did not end the project.
Cathedral Commons is coming to Cleveland Park in Fall 2014! What the heck is that? It’s a mixed-use development including 137 apartments, 8 townhouses, retail, and parking. The project will occupy 2 blocks of Wisconsin Avenue (between Macomb and Idaho) in view of the National Cathedral.
The cornerstone of Cathedral Commons will be a new 56,000 sq. ft. Giant grocery store, replacing the outdated 18,500 sq. ft store built in the 1950s. The new supermarket will include full-service floral, bakery, meat, seafood, and deli departments. In addition, the store will expand it’s offerings of fresh produce, as well as natural, organic, gluten-free, and international products.
This has been a contentious project from the start. Some local residents are
