Shaw’s latest — and biggest — addition, O Street Market, is coming along. The soon-to-be bustling site even has its own website.

Here’s where things currently stand and where things are headed:

  • Bozzuto, the development company on the site, will open the CityMarket at O Street leasing office in the spring.
  • The East Tower of the site is days away from being complete.
  • The Giant will open in a few months, according to the website.
  • The site plans to have residents move into the East Residential Tower in November 2013.

O Street Market will include 80-plus affordable senior rental units, 395 market rate apartments, 145 condos, 189 hotel rooms, 10,000 square feet of retail, 6,000 square foot restaurant and 500 parking spaces. It is located at the 1400 block of 7th Street NW.

Development along 7th Street NW, just east of Logan Circle is bringing major changes to the area. And among new office spaces, the highly-anticipated O Street Market and other local restaurants and shops will be a new apartment building.

Mixed-use development, called Jefferson at Market Place, is planned for the corner of 7th and P Streets NW. The project will include 281 luxury apartments, 230 below-grade parking spaces and 13,400 square feet of retail space. Construction began in August, 2012 and is planned to be compete in March, 2014.

Jefferson at Market Place will feature modern amenities, including a boutique-style lobby with a 24-hour concierge, a state-of-the-art fitness center, resident business center, a community lounge with bar and gaming areas, a landscaped roof deck and a large pool deck on the 8th floor roof.

Jefferson at Market Place is located less than three blocks north of the Washington Convention Center Metro Station and two blocks south of the Shaw-Howard Metro Station. The project will be located adjacent to the future City Market at O.

Shaw, O Street Market

After three plus years, CityMarket will finally break ground this week. The project will fill the area between O and P Streets and 7th and 9th Streets NW. DCMud reports on the day’s events, which kick off at 10 am. (Of course, we thought construction was beginning in September 2010.)

For those worried about the return of the Giant, the start of construction triggers the two year period that Rhodeside Construction has to re-open the Giant. I know that sounds weird — developers opening grocery stores — but the city demanded the swift return of the supermarket to the local community and that’s how it works.

The new City Market will be a one million square foot mixed-use development. A Giant Food supermarket will be the anchor store along with smaller retail stores. A 189-room hotel, affordable senior housing, and apartments and condominiums are on the drawing board for the market complex.

Under a white tent–the thermometer said 95 degrees–with electric fans, water and food courtesy of Giant, residents, developers and politicians gathered Wednesday afternoon to break ground on the O Street Market project. After years of delay, the O Street Market project is finally underway.

The renovation of the historic market in Shaw at 7th and O Streets NW attracted a gaggle of politicians and political candidates–Mayor Adrian Fenty and his challenger, Council Chairman Vincent Gray, Councilmember Jack Evans (D-Ward 2), At-Large Councilmember Kwame Brown (running for Council chairman) and  Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton included.

The new City Market will be a one million square foot mixed-use development. A Giant Food supermarket will be the anchor store along with smaller retail stores. A 189-room hotel, affordable senior housing, and apartments and condominiums are on the drawing board for the market complex.

The project was design by architectural firm Shalom Baranes Associates. The scheduled completion date for the entire project is 2014.

Evans said the O Street Market project is a major win for the Shaw neighborhood and will provide construction jobs for residents. Shaw has undergone huge changes in the past decade with new residents and businesses, but still contains large pockets of poverty.

By the Numbers

The O Street Market will have:

  • 80+ affordable senior rental units
  • 395 market rate apartments
  • 145 condos
  • 189 hotel rooms
  • 10,000 square feet of retail
  • 6,000 square foot restaurant
  • 500 parking spaces
