Wegmans Breaks Ground on First-Ever Washington DC Store

Wegmans Breaks Ground on First-Ever Washington DC Store


WASHINGTON, DC
Monday, December 3rd, 2018

After first revealing plans to enter Washington, DC, May of last year, Wegmans officially broke ground December 1, making headway on its first-ever store in the market. The retailer is setting up shop at former Fannie Mae headquarters, where current plans are underway to turn the site into a mixed-use development, anchored by the 86,000-square-foot Wegmans. The overall project is valued at $640 million.

This new Wegmans store will sit on the lowest level of the Fannie Mae building—which was acquired by Roadside Development and North American Sekisui House in 2016 for $85 million.

According to Washington Business Journal, the site—named City Ridge—will feature 687 residential units, 162,000 square feet of office space, 153,000 square feet of retail space, and more than 750 parking spaces.

With DC down, where will Wegmans set its sights—or sites, if you will—next? Deli Market News will continue to keep you in the loop on all grocery retail movements.
