The site could be a future Amazon Go, which is the company's chain of cashierless convenience stores.But according to the Washington Business Journal, the store is expected to occupy 8,041 square feet.That's at least four times the size of most Amazon Go stores and much smaller than Whole Foods stores, which are typically 25,000 to 50,000 square feet. It's also significantly smaller than the new chain of grocery stores that Amazon has been developing, which will reportedly occupy about 20,000 to 40,000 square feet. Advertisement
The mystery store will be built at 1701 14th Street NW, which is about one mile from the Kalorama neighborhood where Bezos bought a home in 2016 for $23 million.Advertisement
