Thursday night, the Zoning Commission approved redevelopment of the Petworth (aka “Stinky” or “Sixties”) Safeway. The property at 3830 Georgia Ave. NW is now zoned for a mixed-use, five-story residential project, anchored by a brand-new Safeway.
The proposed 62,000 square-foot Safeway will have 86 below-grade parking spaces and a look reminiscent of the CityVista Safeway. (Co-owner Duball also worked on that store.) Going into last night’s meeting, the project had the 9-1 support of the ANC 4C. Duball president Marc Dubick tells DCmud that construction should take 18 months and will commence in nine months.
