Safeway Fifth Street Entrance Closed?

I’ve heard a rumor that the Fifth Street entrance of Safeway has been closed. The source says management claims they have been suffering an average of $11,000 in stolen items per month and attribute much of that loss to people sneaking out the side door without paying.

And Rachelle Nigro contacted Safeway and learned this is a permanent change.

City Vista Landscaping Upgrades

As we noted in April the K Street landscaping at City Vista has been seriously lacking. As July winds to a close some major upgrades have been installed this week. The vast expanses of dirt now have compact groupings of bushes/plants.

What kind of bushes are those round ones?

What NYC Restaurant should come to DC?

The social media arm of Douglas Development used Twitter today to ask what NYC restaurant would you like to see come to DC?

I would venture to guess the question is posed with their Penn Quarter retail vacancies at the forefront of possible destinations.

Leave your suggestions in the our comments section and/or tweet to @douglasdevdc

Any thoughts on their followup question?

Mount Vernon Triangle Census Population

With the ANC redistricting discussions well underway several tools have been published depicting visual representations of Ward 6 population. Using the tool it appears Mount Vernon Triangle has a census population of 2840.


The block that contains Museum Square and the City Vista L, K and V contains more than half of MVT’s population. Unfortunately the Equity Residential Apartments at 401 & 425 Mass lacked residents during the period the census was enumerated.

The ANC redistricting process aims to create single member districts between 1900 and 2100 residents. The census population drives the metrics and future population growth that has already been achieved (425 Mass) or projected growth (in-progress construction at 425 L) is considered irrelevant.
