We learned in late November that the city issued a raze permit for the Brentwood Village Shopping Center as part of Mid-City’s RIA DC development project. The shopping center, located at 1301-1333 Rhode Island Ave. NE had discount stores, a liquor store and a Jamaican food restaurant. We recently learned from this Facebook post that the shopping center would be demolished sometime this week.
As a reminder, RIA is a 20-acre mixed-use development located just across Rhode Island Avenue from Brookland between Brentwood Road and Montana Ave NE. The DC Zoning Commission approved Stage One of the development about a year ago. When complete, the development will include 1,760 residential units and up to 181,000 square feet of commercial space including a full service grocery store. We will let you know when we hear anything new.
