Chipotle Signs Deal With WC Smith For First Location East Of The River
When WC Smith built the project in 2007, the shopping center's Giant became the first full-service grocery store to be built in Ward 8 in over 40 years. The property also includes an IHOP, Subway, Pizza Boli's, a bank, a barbershop and a nail salon.
The property is about half a mile from the Congress Heights Metro station and the St. Elizabeths East campus, which is undergoing a major redevelopment. Given that location and its mixed-use zoning, the site appears to be ripe for a redevelopment like the one WC Smith launched with Rappaport at nearby Skyland Town Center, but the new lease signals that will likely not happen any time soon.
