Lot’s of debate in the discussion on retail suggestions for 924 5th Street. Very strong support for a nail salon from the ladies and some loyal husbands. Others lust for a more inspired choice.
Perhaps the compromise is a Nail Salon on the second floor with one of the other discussed options such as a pet store on the ground floor? It was brought to my attention that Annie Nail Salon in Georgetown is on the second floor of a row house.
I think most in the community would view that as a creative win-win. Would it be a non-starter for the new landlord? My loose understanding is that the vision is for the 2nd and 3rd floors to be bundled together as office space. If a second floor use doesn’t also also consume the third floor it may render the top floor too isolated to easily lease.
