4330 48th Street NW
A residential development could be in the works for the former site of the Superfresh and Fresh & Green supermarkets in American University Park.
Valor Development is under contract on the former grocery store site at 4330 48th Street NW (map) adjacent to American University law school. The firm plans a residential project that could be anchored by a grocery store. The scope of the project has yet to be finalized.
Valor’s Will Lansing tells UrbanTurf that it will be residential and retail “but the extent is still underdetermined until we are able to gauge which direction the neighborhood will support.” Lansing said that the firm would like to see the project to go the planned unit development route, which would likely bring another grocery store to the site with residences above. A plan will not be finalized until the developer gets significant input from the community.
While vacant for the last two years, the 48th Street site has served as the location of a grocery store for fifty years. An A&P opened in 1964 before becoming a Superfresh store. When Superfresh closed, a Fresh & Green opened in 2011 only to close two years later.
