Upcoming real estate development in Petworth includes condominiums, apartments, restaurants, and a grocery store. The Petworth neighborhood is known for 1920s to 30s era brick row homes, many of which have been renovated and resold. The Northwest DC neighborhood has experienced a flurry of development and revitalization lately.
Georgia Avenue is the main commercial thoroughfare in Petworth with local restaurants and shops. The owners of the Blaguard in Adams Morgan have purchased the property at 3911 Georgia Avenue. After nine months to a year of renovation, they plan to open a new bistro with a beer garden on the back patio.
The “Goins Building” at Shepherd Street and Georgia Avenue in Petworth is also slated for redevelopment after a long vacancy. Plans call for a mixed-use development with a 4,000-square-foot restaurant on the ground floor and residential units (condos or apartments) above.
Less than one block away from the former Goins Restaurant is another real estate development in Petworth by PERS Development. Details have not been released, but the developer plans to build a complex called Fahrenheit Condos this year. The development will span from 3930 to 3936 Georgia Avenue.
The next block of Georgia Avenue will be home to Petworth’s new Safeway after almost two years of construction. The bigger and better Safeway will replace the 50-year-old one at 3830 Georgia Avenue in the summer of 2014. This grocery store will be one of the largest Safeway stores in DC, and will include a full deli, pharmacy, and Starbucks. This is also a mixed use development with 220 apartments in a five-story building, as well as underground parking for shoppers and residents.
Georgia Avenue seems to be a hotbed of change lately. Keep your eyes peeled for all the real estate development in Petworth!
