Square 54, The Avenue To Introduce Foggy Bottom Whole Foods

There will be a Foggy Bottom Whole Foods after all.  Whole Foods has signed a lease with The Avenue, the new name for the Square 54 project across from the Foggy Bottom Metro, for a space that spans 38,000 square feet.

The Avenue as a building is really beginning to take shape.  Whole Foods will join  Devon & Blakely, as well as a couple of restaurants that have already signed up to be part of the brand new construction.

The arrival of a Whole Foods will be a welcome sight to many Foggy Bottom residents. 

It used to be that the only legitimate grocery store in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood was the Safeway in the Watergate building.  Then, in 2006, Trader Joe's moved into the West End area.  Once open, the Whole Foods in the Avenue will provide residents and GWU students with their first major grocery store right in the heart of Foggy Bottom.

Wale to Perform at GWU in Foggy Bottom

Rap star Wale will perform on Saturday, September 4th in Foggy Bottom for GWU's Fall Fest. 

The DC area born and bred lyricist is already known throughout the District and continues to grow his name nationally.

After enduring disappointing sales for his CD Attention Deficit, Wale just released a mixtape entitled More About Nothing, which has had wild internet success.  The mixtape, which is available for free download online, is named More About Nothing because it incorporates soundbites from the sitcom "Seinfeld" on a number of tracks.

Wale's performance in Foggy Bottom will be free for any GWU student with valid student ID.

The concert will take place at 4 p.m. in GW's University Yard, located on H Street between 20th street and 21st street in NW.

Travie McCoy, the lead singer of the hip-hop band Gym Class Heroes will also be performing.

GW Students Return to Foggy Bottom This Weekend

Yes Foggy Bottomers, whether you like it or not, it's that time of year again.

George Washington University students will return to campus this weekend in full force, which means dorm and apartment move-in will be going on all over Foggy Bottom Saturday and Sunday. 

Georgetown University is also scheduled to have registration and move-in this weekend, which will most likely render M Street packed with traffic and pedestrians.

Needless to say, it will be a very busy weeked in and around Foggy Bottom.

Bicycles Must Stop At Signals; Just Like Motorists

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA) - The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is launching bicycle only traffic signals at the intersection of 16th Street, U Street and New Hampshire Avenue, NW, according to a news release.

"We know that this is already a very popular route for many cyclists, but it can be treacherous getting through the intersection," Said DDOT Director Gabe Klein. "These changes will make it safer without impacting other traffic."

With the addition of the contraflow lanes, cyclists can now travel legally in both directions on New Hampshire Avenue. When they reach the intersection, they will have to wait for the GREEN bike signal before proceeding into the bike boxes on 16th Street, DDOT said.
