Angela Phelps had no intention of opening a new shop. But when developers approached her with a storefront at the new development of Cathedral Commons west of Cleveland Park, she says it was an offer she couldn’t refuse.

“As soon as they told me where the location was, I thought ‘Oh, that’s such a great neighborhood,’ ” said Phelps, who opened Le Village Marsh, a home decor boutique in Shirlington, in early 2007. “The neighborhood was very similar to what we have here in Shirlington: It’s very close-knit, a lot of regular customers, people of all ages — singles, young families, retired people.”

Le Village Marsh is one of seven new businesses to sign onto Cathedral Commons, a mixed-use development on Wisconsin Avenue, NW that includes a residential building and a 56,000-square-foot Giant Food that opened in December.

Other businesses heading to development on Wisconsin Ave. NW include:

• Solidcore, a fitness studio that has three other locations in the District and one in Ballston.

• Grilled Oyster Company, a seafood and steak restaurant that will open a 4,169-square-foot eatery.

• Wylie Wagg, a family-run specialty pet store with five area locations.

• Core 72, which specializes in women’s activewear. This will be the second location for the company, which has a store in Chevy Chase.

• Pure Barre, a fitness studio that has 10 area locations, including centers in Dupont Circle, Capitol Hill, Arlington and Rockville.

• Parks Fabricare, a dry cleaning service and an original tenant of the prior development, that will reopen a 1,656-square-foot storefront.

With the exception of Solidcore, which is already open, the businesses are scheduled to open in the spring.

“These retailers will round out the community’s terrific line up of local and national health, retail, and dining options,” said Toby Bozzuto, president of the Bozzuto Group, the Greenbelt-based company overseeing the development.

A number of tenants, including Barcelona Restaurant & Wine Bar, iDoc Optical and Wells Fargo have already been announced. Cathedral Commons also has 137 apartments and eight townhomes, which opened this fall.

The development is a joint venture between Bozzuto, Baltimore-based Southside Investment Partners and Ahold USA, the parent company of Giant Food.
