Housing Complex's Lydia DePillis breaks the news that the Ali family, owners of Ben's Chili Bowl & Ben's Next Door succeded in their quest to purchase 1001 H Street from George Parker, the long time owner of George's Place. Mr. Parker is retiring with a $900,000 check for the double wide building on the SE corner of 10th & H.
Another H Street property changed hands this month too. 1351 H Street was purchased for $825,000 by WestMill Capital, run by Ben and Dan Miller. WestMill Capital is the new owner of the large plot that currently houses AutoZone and a surface parking lot and has plans to invest in several smaller projects along the corridor. DePillis previously reported that this property would be put to a restaurant use of some sort with a farm-to-table concept, a Red Rocks pizzeria, or a Bon Chon South Korean chicken style venue all considered possibilities. We'd welcome any of the three. The building is one of the last ones in a well-used stretch of H Street that is full of restaurants which is bookended the Atlas Performing Arts Center and SOVA and is located immediately in between Rock n Roll Hotel and Star and Shamrock.
