Washington, DC’s first Wegmans to open in July
The City Ridge Project in Northwest, Washington DC is coming to fruition with the opening of the city’s first Wegmans and the development’s first apartment building. According to reporting from WTOP and personnel at the project, a Wegmans will be opening in July. In fact, Google Maps indicates the store will open Wednesday, July 13.
Although Wegmans has 20 units in the DMV, according to WTOP, City Ridge Wegmans will be the first of the chain’s grocery stores to open within the city’s borders.
The Branches apartment building offers units within the City Ridge project. This is the first of four residential complexes, according to the radio outlet, to open at the development. One to three bedroom apartments will be offered at the 157-unit community. Prices range from $2,600 for one-bedrooms to $11,000 for 2,000 square-foot units, notes the reporting.
Three other residential complexes will also debut—The Coterie, Crescendo and Botanica.
Wegmans, which has developed a reputation for its fresh meat and seafood counters, along with heat-and-eat meals and food bars, will compete against a neighboring Lidl at Upton Place, arriving nearly a year later. That Donohoe project was also reported by WTOP.
New grocery-store brands are in demand in DC, and the lifestyle center of City Ridge is a much needed addition to the Wisconsin Avenue corridor in Northwest DC between Tenleytown and Cathedral Heights.
Upcoming City Ridge restaurant openings include Taco Bamba, King St Oyster Bar and Tatte Bakery & Cafe.
