Cleveland Park Giant Update

Stop and Shop aka Giant Food, has updated the website for the plans at the fabled store at Newark Street.

After fits and starts dating back to 1998, the project seems to be moving forward to moderinize and upgrade the two-block section of Wisconsin Avenue controlled by the corporation. In response to the December 11, 2006neighborhood meeting, the official website has been updated to include context, renderings, plans, and interior amenities.

What strikes me about this is how Newark Street would become a little "town centre", with additional green space, traffic calming, and most importantly sheer walkability.
