At delivery, 7900 Wisconsin will be a 17-story, luxury apartment building with 475 units, grocery store-anchored ground floor retail, underground parking, a rooftop pool, and a bikeshare station. It will include a through-block cut-through for pedestrians between Wisconsin and Woodmont.

JBG had reached a preliminary agreement with Trader Joe's to anchor the 7900 Wisconsin development in 2014. When the project was halted, JBG said it was seeking additional financing. Others speculated that Fitness First, a tenant in the existing 7900 Wisconsin office building, had a longer lease than JBG realized. Fitness First has claimed to be expanding its space, and has been on a social media advertising blitz recently.
Once demolition permits are in hand, the Fitness First controversy will be settled one way or another.
