Wisconsin Avenue Giant Closes Parking Lot April 23rd

The former Giant Food parking lot will close April 23rd for developers to begin a "lead and rat abatement program" in advance of construction for Cathedral Commons, the new $125 million mixed use project at Wisconsin Avenue and Newark Streets, NW.  The Giant Food store itself closed April 12th.

Cathedral Commons will encompass two blocks featuring:

  • a new 56,000 square foot Giant grocery store
  • 8 townhomes
  • 137 apartments
  • 500+ parking spaces
  • nearly 70,000 square feet of other shops and restaurants

Bozzuto Group and Giant Food, development partners for the project, hope to begin construction during spring 2012 with a tentative opening date for the new supermarket scheduled in late 2013.  Giant Food has created a website with more information on the plan, design, construction, and timeline.
