City Market at O Street is a one million square foot, urban infill project in the heart of the Shaw neighborhood at 7th & O Streets NW.

This historic O Street Market at 7th and O streets is the cornerstone of this project and was restored into a state-of-the-art 78,000 square foot Giant Food Store.

This will allow work from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., probably ending at 5 a.m. He said there would be no jackhammers, just digging, and the work will last a month or month and a half. Commissioner Garber emphasized that the work lights should face the work area, not nearby residences. If there are problems, people are urged to be in touch with Bob Rubenkonig at
