Update on Petworth Safeway Project

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about when the Safeway at 3830 Georgia Avenue will be closed, razed, and replaced. In fact, the last major news was back in February 2011. I’ve been asked by several people if the project is still moving forward, or if like so many others it has merely evaporated out of sight and mind.

Well, it seems others have been wondering the same thing. The question was raised on the Petworth Listserv on Monday (7/9) and thanks for Joe Martin, the following information was distributed.

The Safeway is scheduled to close within the next 30-45 days. All the necessary permits have been submitted and are in the process of getting approved and issued.  Duball, LLC, is also in the process of securing final construction pricing for the project. All-in-all everyone involved in the project is optimistic that the store closing process and follow-up demolition of the old building will begin in late August or early September.

As mentioned in an earlier post,  Safeway plans to open a temporary pharmacy down the street during construction.
