Brentwood Shopping Center Nears Completion


Development continues to spread around the red line’s Rhode Island Avenue metro station, with news that the Brentwood Shopping Center is nearing completion at the intersection of Rhode Island Avenue and Brentwood Road, NE. The new 58,000-sf strip mall will house 8 new stores, including a much-needed bank, but not a good non- fast food restaurant for this part of town. The center is to begin scheduled shop openings by the end of September (with all shops open by the end of October). With nearby new condo projects starting to spring up in Brentwood, such as the RIA at 1007 Rhode Island Avenue and a Metro Properties project at 1300 Rhode Island Avenue, we can anticipate further retail development in this neighborhood soon.

Does anyone know what a "Metro Properties Project" is? ...that is going to be going up around 1300 RI Ave NE? Just curious... I work for Whole Foods Market, Inc and I have turned our regional real estate finders on to the shopping area around the safeway at RI NE and 4th st NE. They buy out poorly run grocery stores from time to time and make the space their own. That could be exciting for the area.

The 1300 R.I. Ave property is going to be a large condominium building. There are several properties nearby owned by developers, so there is certainly good potential for growth there.
