Cathedral Commons Developers Forget About Jewish Holiday, Move Launch Party

render-residentialbuildingMany neighbors up on Wisconsin Avenue have been excitedly awaiting an event scheduled for Thursday afternoon to celebrate plans–not break ground yet–for a modernized Giant Food store and large residential development known as Cathedral Commons. Just one problem: That's a) Right in the middle of the day, when most neighbors aren't around, and b) On the high Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah, in one of D.C.'s more heavily Jewish neighborhoods.

Whoops. The press conference has been rescheduled, at a time to be determined. L'shanah tovah, friends.

    Good to see that they are doing the right thing, although I did not expect them to.

    I think Giant had not choice but to cancel the event. The candidates heard from a number of their supporters who questioned what they were doing in participating in Giant's corporate kickoff tomorrow. It was pressure from the community and the candidates themselves, who were worried about backfire, that led Giant to change its plans.
