About this time last year, Safeway proposed a 1950's style replacement for its Tenleytown store. Because they parking garage overshadowed the backyards of the immediate neighbors, and because of the property location between the Friendship Heights and Tenleytown metro stations, the DC Office of Planning suggested that this may be an opportunity for a good mixed-use development instead of an auto-centric store in upper Northwest. Several months passed but in the fall, there was new movement.
After consultation and a public meeting for input, the design team, Clark Construction and Torti Gallas have provided some new information (PDF).
According to the project website, there will be additional opportunity for feedback on January 18th and February 2.
