Construction at the 215-unit H Street apartment project that is being called 360 (degrees) H Street is set to start by the beginning of July, DCmud reports. The project, that will be anchored by a Giant supermarket and is scheduled to deliver in 2013, will be located at 3rd and H Street NE (map).

Here is a description of the 286,500 square-foot Steuart Investment Co. development from DCmud:

The Steuart project, designed by Torti Gallas, will add a 6 story, LEED certified building – a 5 story residence above a retail pad – with a 42,000 s.f. Giant supermarket. The building will have 2 floors of underground parking, a residential lobby and small retail bay on H Street with a 22 foot high ground floor.

After Trader Joe’s, Harris Teeter and Yes! Organic all passed on the opportunity, last November, Giant Food signed on to anchor the new project, which will be one of many new apartment projects in the area.

A year ago, we wrote about the “explosive effect” that the opening of a grocery store can have on a neighborhood. Examples throughout the city are numerous: the “urban lifestyle” Safeway on the ground floor of CityVista at 5th and L Street NW is always one of the first amenities cited by residents of Mount Vernon Triangle; the rapidly changing but oft-overlooked Southwest neighborhood now has a newly renovated Safeway that was long derided as sloppy and understocked; and the Jenkins Row Harris Teeter on Pennsylvania Avenue in Capitol Hill helped sell the 250+ units in that condo project.
