The Allegro Condominium development is coming along with the completion of its site demolition in February and the beginning of the site work in March. Allegro is a $105 million, 297 unit condominium project that is being built at the site of the old Giant (3460 14th St NW). It is being developed by Metro Properties. There have been some official press releases and media reports over the past several weeks that we have been meaning to post.
Late last month, the Washington Business Journal published a story on Allegro. Here are some excerpts:
There was also a bit of information on the retail portion of this project.
This is news to us. Last year, we were told that the retail portion will consist of two spaces, each with 1,500 square feet (only 3,000 sq. ft. total) . This is good news for many residents who expressed a strong desire for retail in this development. The original plans for Allegro had no retail space at all. Last year, with some community prodding, Metro Properties decided to add the retail component to its plans.

The following is a press release from Metro Properties made at the end February:
