Rendering of Walmart planned for 801 New Jersey Avenue NW

Jonathan O’Connell of Capital Business recently tweeted renderings of what the Walmart at 801 New Jersey Avenue NW (map) could look like.

The 801 New Jersey Avenue store would cover 75,000 to 80,000 square feet of the ground floor of a five-story mixed-use building. The remainder of the floors would be made up with 315 apartments as well as additional retail. The site is currently a parking lot.

    It looks better than I expected. And while I don't love walmart it will be convenient for certain things.

    Well, at least I don't feel as apprehensive about it being in DC-due to this layout. However, there are 3 more Walmarts to consider that will be strategically placed in different areas of the city. Maybe, this will be a game-changing initiative that Walmart is trying to do. Who knows? Well, nonetheless, its going to be here regardless. Let's just make the best of it as possible.

    You have to wonder what the possible apartments above will go for.

    Pretty sweet, in my opinion.

    wow, that's a shocker. thanks, walmart, for correctly reading the rightly placed urban negative vibes against your normally gray, ugly behemoth buildings.

    Hey, could you post any future renderings once they become definite and available? I'd really appreciate it. Thank You.

    I did not think that the Walmart would be this close to H St. That will be a nice addition to the Giant, and Harris Teeter.

    Condos, not apartments!

    The Walmart Residences? I wonder what they will call it. It looks like it might have a sweet pool deck that could have a view of the capitol.

    Looks fantastic.

    Yuck. Walmart is so ghetto. The real thing will look nothing like these pretty pictures. peopleofwalmart.com

    The design looks nice, but I'll hold off judgement until more details emerge. For instance, does this design reopen First Street NW or close it down. I can't tell from these drawings. (for primer on that land and First Street NW, check out this GGW post: http://greatergreaterwashington.org/post/8190/demand-a-better-walmart-on-city-land/ )

    O'Connell said that JBG indicated that First Street will be reopened, but possibly not all the way through to I. He also said that an office building is eventually planned for the lot across first (fronting NJ Ave), but there is no tenant lined up - so it could be a while before work gets started to build Walmart a neighbor.

    really? any wallyworld is going to destroy the limited small business the district already has. the jobs it brings....to people who live in maryland. the traffic it brings....only another excuse for parking ticket revenue. oh, did i mention that the traffic will be horrible. and did i mention it destroys local business. absolutely, without regard, it destroys. it also destroys initiative. please be real, be human and say no to this further robot-shopper-ization of the world.
