The Bozzuto Group, Giant Food of Landover and Southside Investment Partners will break ground on the $130m Cathedral Commons project in Washington D.C, US.
Located on Wisconsin Avenue in north-west Washington, D.C., the four-acre Cathedral Commons will feature 137 apartments, eight townhomes, 128,000ft² of retail space and over 500 parking spaces, all centered around a state-of-the-art Giant Food store.
Giant Food has been operating a store at Wisconsin Avenue for over 50 years.
Upon completion, the new 56,000ft² Giant will be more than triple the size of the previous store.
The building design will have several green and sustainable elements. The remainder of the prime street front retail space will be leased by H&R Retail.
The development will also feature amenities such as a hotel-style lobby, lounge areas and a library, a fitness centre, a clubroom with bar, residential courtyards and a rooftop deck with views of the National Cathedral.
The residential element of Cathedral Commons is scheduled to be complete in 2014.
Bozzuto Building is serving as the general contractor for the development with Bozzuto Management managing the apartments.
According to a report, Bozzuto is also close to signing a similar agreement with Safeway for its property in the Wisconsin Avenue corridor, a 34,000ft² store at 4203 Davenport St. NW, in Tenleytown.
Under the development, Bozzuto is planning to create a 58,000ft² store with 150 apartments plus ten to 15 town homes above.
