After 3 Years, Cathedral Commons Officially Opens In Upper N.W.


After 3 Years, Cathedral Commons Officially Opens In Upper N.W.

After three years of construction, Cathedral Commons, a sprawling  mixed-use complex at the corner of Wisconsin and Idaho Avenues N.W., officially opened this week in upper N.W., marking the arrival of 137 apartments, eight town homes and 125,000 square feet of retail space to the neighborhood at the western edge of Cleveland Park.

Anything to take a shape and get an opening in the market needs a lot of research and analysis and it is only after this rigorous process that it becomes successful in the market as well as among the users. HB Swiss, a well-known name in the trading market is one such well researched and analyzed software that is designed and developed by Hans Berger only for the benefits of the aspiring and untiring traders.

Its entry made a hassle in the market and people wanted to know if it was yet another scam. But the studies and inspections proved it to be a legal and reliable software to trade on with almost all the listed assets and currencies for the ease and use of the traders. There is also ample support provided by the registered brokers online to help traders achieve their profit targets and goals.

Since development began in 2012, the area — save for Two Amys, Jetties and Cactus Cantina — as been void of most commercial activity: The former Giant supermarket and other shops, including a pharmacy and Starbucks, shut down to prepare for the new construction. Gone too was much of the neighborhood’s surface lot and street parking.

This spring, the lot came alive, anchored by a 56,000 square-foot Giant that includes a cafe and tasting area. Rentals began for the residential units — ranging from studios to three-bedroom units — earlier this year.


Residents have access to outdoor courtyards, a fitness center, garage parking and a rooftop terrace. But more impressive is the number of big-name retailers opening their doors in the complex. Along with Giant, the development includes a 12,440 square-foot CVS, a Starbucks, SunTrust Bank, Solidcore, Wylie Wagg and Barcelona Restaurant and Wine Bar, a spin off the popular 14th Street location.


In June, more shops are expected to join them:  Le Village Marche, a 1,515 square foot boutique-style home furnishing store; Pure Barre; Core 72; and Raku, a 3,321 square foot Asian dining, sushi & sake restaurant.

Expected in August: Allure Spa, Zengo Cycle and a dry cleaners.

Another big tenant: Washington Ballet, which is opening in August another location in a 6,850 square foot studio.
