The City Paper reports that H Street Playhouse is likely to move a few blocks east when their lease is up at the end of the year in the face of rising rent demands from their landlord. We'll be sorry to see them move, but hope they don't go more than a few blocks futher out and wonder if the new Flats At Atlas development might be interested in them as a marquee draw tenant.
Prince of Petworth heard that Ace Hardware might open at 700 H St. Housing Complex confirms that the main Ace franchisee in DC (Gina Schaefer with her husband Mark Friedman) is looking on H Street, but doesn't think that's the location they'll end up in. Our sources say they're both more right than wrong and that we'll have confirmation of an Ace Hardware coming to H Street soon.
Mike Neibauer reports in the Washington Business Journal that Mayor Gray has not responded to requests from neighborhood residents and several ANC Commissioners to come forward with the city's plans for the development on Reservation 13 on the eastern end of the Hill.
We broke the news that The Daily Rider would bring a bike shop to 1108 H St. This is one of a few retail shops we've been hearing about lately with another one on the 700 block and one on the 400 block in the works as well.
Jonathan O'Connell reported in the Post on the East Banc developer whose redoing Hine (across from Eastern Market -- which is apparently under consideration for DC's Eataly) and who recently purchased the Bladensburg Rd site just east of H Street that currently houses CVS. Sounds like there will be another major development coming to the corridor on the western end of Bladensburg Rd in the coming years.
