Major Demolition Underway at 1270 4th Street, NE

Major demolition is underway at 1270 4th Street, NE, the future location of The Shapiro, a major residential and retail project in the Union Market area.  This lot–almost an entire city block long–is located immediately south of Masseria and Neal Place Tap and Garden on 4th Street).  Previously the Cash and Carry, the new building will be over 400 units of apartments (built in two phases) and will house a major culinary market by Chef Jose Garces (retail managed by Union Market developer Edens).  As you can see from the photo above, the entire building has been demolished except for the front wall which is being preserved to become a part of the new building.  You can learn more about the design of the building from the developer here.
