This is a bit of good news. The lots on the South Side of Florida between the CVS parking lot on 7th across 8th to 9th street are set to be sold. Washington Metro has finally agreed to a price for the land and the transaction should go through this week.
It is good news that the developer, JBG, will be developing these spots along with other lots they have on 8th & V Streets. But there is not much they can do. The metro starts about 30ft down so any buildings will need to be shallow and with limited parking. I have heard they were thinking about a hotel with commercial and retail. Given the impending number of housing units that will be coming on in the ‘hood, that is a good thing. I still want a supermarket.
