Linked Up: I-395 Air Rights, Steuart, Merzi

Penn Quarter: The former Zenith Gallery (413 7th St NW) was subdivided after shuttering. Pitango Gelato opened in one space this past weekend and we learn that a new fast casual Indian concept called Merzi will open in the remaining space.

    Steuart/Paradigm is scheduled to be at the June 2 ANC 6C Planning, Zoning, and Environment Committee meeting to give the community an update on their plans for Square 515 (similar to what they did for MVSNA). The meeting will be held at NPR (635 Massachusets Ave NW) and starts at 7:00 pm. We’re working on getting an update from Dreyfus for the I-395 Air Rights project as well for a future meeting.

    Oooo…fast casual Indian would be great. I hope they have some street foods, ala IndAroma.
