Cathedral Commons is now officially open. Representatives from The Bozzuto Group were present on Wisconsin Avenue on May 27 to celebrate the grand opening of the mixed-use complex.

Bozzuto developed Cathedral Commons in joint venture with Ahold USA, parent company of Giant Food, and Southside Investment Partners. Construction on the $125 million project started in March 2012. It was designed by JCA and Maurice Walters Architects, with interiors by Hartman Design Group.

Cathedral Commons now offers 137 apartment residences and eight for-rent townhomes, 125,000 square feet of retail space and more than 500 parking spaces. The first residents moved into the new homes this January. The units come equipped with chef-inspired kitchens, hardwood floors and other amenities. Residents will also have access to a clubroom, a fitness center and common areas.

However, the development’s most important amenity is the abundance of on-site retailers. Cathedral Commons is anchored by a 56,000-square-foot Giant Food, which opened last November. Its tenant roster also includes CVS Pharmacy, Starbucks, SunTrust Bank and others. And according to Bozzuto, many other retailers are expected to open locations at the development in the coming months. These include La Village Marche, Pure Barre, Core 72, Raku, Washington Ballet, Allure Spa, Parks Fabricare, Zengo Cycle and Grilled Oyster Company. H&R Retail is handling the retail leasing for the complex.
