Congratulations on Marriage Equality.
A third hotel has become a possibility in the Mount Vernon Triangle in addition to the Hampton Inn and the future Standard Hotel. The property owner, Han Jan, of the historic row houses at 444 and 446 K St NW have modified their plans for an apartment building and may be constructing a hotel due to the smaller footprint the Historic Preservation Board requested for the site. Currently, the owner is working with the architecture firm of Studio Crowley Hall but no other presentations have been scheduled at this time beyond the June Historic Preservation hearing.
The Baked&Wired unnamed project opened its doors today at 440 K St NW. This location will offer the same quality baked goods and espresso as Baked&Wired in Georgetown. The fresh bread will be made right in the open kitchen. This location will also provide alcoholic beverages and more space to hang out. The still unnamed bakery has paired the right breads with the right ingredients to make some amazing sandwiches. Still no official name, but you can check out their temporary website called A Baked Joint. Let us know what you think!
Many have wondered about the construction activity around the vacant buildings in the 400 block of Eye Street NW. According to the workers, they are stabilizing the walls of the buildings in advance of apartment construction in the future.
If if anyone has additional information, please post to this thread and I will update.
