Bozzuto Celebrates Start of Cathedral Commons





Demolition to make way for Cathedral Commons is now underway both officially and physically.  Bozzuto held a press conference this morning to celebrate work that began quietly this week to demolish two city blocks and replace it with a mixed-use development and Giant supermarket.  The 4-acre, $130 million project will add an improved, larger Giant as well as 137 apartment units, 8 townhouses, and a concourse with 125,000 s.f. of street front retail space.


What remains of the SunTrust building
Construction work on the project has been expected for the past year, and evidently close when construction fences went up last month.  The project was designed by JCA Architects of Reston. According to a press release:
Cathedral Commons will include 137 apartment units and eight townhomes, more than 500 parking spaces, and 128,000 square feet of vibrant retail anchored by a 56,000 square-foot state-of-the-art Giant Food, which will include full-service floral, bakery, meat, seafood and deli departments and an expanded offering of fresh produce, natural, organic, and gluten-free products as well as international items. Resident amenities in the spectacular community will include a boutique hotel-style lobby, lounge areas and library, fitness center, clubroom, conference room, and residential courtyards.

It was beginning to look like Metro to Dulles would be done first. (And maybe it will . . . )

Here is a Cleveland Park resident happy to have this addition to Wisconsin Ave. More housing, more walkable shopping and more tax revenue for the District. What's not to like?
