  1. Southeast Safeway/developer team holds the first of multiple public meeting to introduce the redevelopment of the Southeast Safeway. 7:00pm, Hill Center, 921 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE.

According to ANC6B Commissioner Nick Burger, the site will be redeveloped into a by-right mixed use building, which will include a Safeway store, additional retail, and residential units on the upper stories. Because of the large retail space(s), the project will go through a “large tract review” process.  For more info on the large tract review process, see Burger’s blog post here:
