If you've been in Shaw lately, you've seen the craters, the cranes, and the shell of the old O Street Makret at 7th and O where the new City Market at O project is underway. Roadside Development and Clark Construction are working towards their 2013 delivery goal for the new 71,000 SF Giant supermarket. That will be followed by the 189 room Cambria Suites Hotel in 2014.
130 condominiums are also planned for the west block of City Market at O.
City Market at O will include 86,233 SF of retail, 396 market rate rental units, 84-unit affordable senior residential rental units and 130 condominiums (fall 2014). CityMarket's 516 space parking garage and truck court will offer car and bike sharing, electric car charging stations and bike storage for residents and visitors. The Giant will have an entrance and exit in the old market tower and 7th and O Streets. The project is costing an estimated $300M.
The snapshot above is a time-lapse photo from the Clark Construction website on the night of July 15th. There's also a cool time-lapse YouTube video showing the demolition and construction process.
