Developments Filling Up Lower Georgia Avenue

by Shilpi Paul

Back in October 2011, UrbanTurf looked at the many residential developments on tap for H Street NE. In December, we did a rundown of the slew of buildings popping up on the 14th Street Corridor and earlier this year we covered the R-B Corridor.

Today, we look at the new residential developments that are being built on lower Georgia Avenue, south of Randolph Street and north of Columbia Road.

2920 Georgia Avenue

A 26-unit condo building is going up at 2920 Georgia Avenue NW (map). Linde Development is constructing the four-story project right next to 2910 Georgia, a condo project that the developer completed in 2011. A recent post on Park View, DC said that the site looks ready for demolition. The project is expected to deliver in late-2013.

Petworth Safeway & Residences

North of the Petworth Metro station at 3830 Georgia Avenue NW (map), Duball LLC has plans to construct a new Safeway store along with 210 apartment units. The new 60,000-square foot store will be the largest Safeway in the city. There will be ample underground parking, and the building will rise six stories. According to Prince of Petworth, the Safeway will be closing in September and demolition and construction will start soon after. Delivery is estimated for fall 2013.

The Heights on Georgia Avenue

The Heights, a 69-unit apartment building located at 3232 Georgia Avenue NW (map), broke ground this past March. The project is notable for its affordable units and sustainable features, like a green roof and a community garden. It will be comprised of one, two and three bedroom apartments, and Neighborhood Development Company (NDC) and Mi Casa are developing the project together. They are aiming for completion in the middle of next year.

Murry’s Georgia Avenue Site

Eventually, 100 apartments will be constructed in the space currently occupied by Murry’s market at the corner of Georgia Avenue and Morton Street NW (map). Yanni Xanthos bought the space last summer and, with Redbrick Development, will be developing it in 2014, with a planned 2016 delivery. In addition to apartments, Xanthos is hoping to attract a national tenant, possibly a small grocery store. Plans also include 40 underground parking spaces.

The Vue will have 112 apartments and 12,000 square feet of retail, and will rise up eight stories. NDC is aiming for a 2015 delivery.

    Re: Silver Spring, a whole article could be devoted to the hilariousness of 8711 Georgia Ave. ("The Premier" - groundbreaking 2 weeks ago) tweeting in the first person: https://twitter.com/Premier8711 Seriously dorky, but pretty entertaining and useful to easily follow progress.
