Ft. Totten Square/Walmart project set to break ground next month

 At last night's Lamond Riggs Civic Association Meeting, JGB Companies presented an update on the Ft. Totten Square / Walmart Project slated for the intersection of Riggs Rd and South Dakota Ave NE.  The much talked about addition to the neighborhood is set to break ground late next month, and will create quit the impact to the surrounding neighborhoods.  At the meeting, JGB provided fact sheets regarding the project and details about the construction process. Even though JGB seems to be courting the Lamond Riggs Neighborhood, it is important for everyone in surrounding neighborhoods to provide input and be aware of new developments.
Highlights of the fact sheet were as follows:

- Construction activity is anticipated to begin December 2012/January 2013 on FortTotten Square, which will include 345 apartments, an urban format Walmart, and additional neighborhood serving retail.

- The development team for Fort Totten Square is a joint venture between affiliates of The JBG Companies andLowe Enterprises. The architect for theproject is Hickok Cole.

- According to District of Columbia law, construction hours are limited to 7am – 7pm, Monday thru Saturday.

- During the initial phases of construction, vehicles will enter the site from 3rd St, near Riggs Rd, and exit the site onto Chillum Pl, near Riggs Rd. We will make every effort to direct vehicles to travel from Riggs Rd to and from the site.

- Vehicles entering and exiting the site will be cleaned as necessary so that dirt and debris are minimized and do not impact the surrounding neighborhood.
