Construction permits and a banner sign for a new nail salon and spa has been hung on 317 H Street NW. The new business in the former Pathway’s women’s shelter location will be called Happy Nails & Day Spa. This will give Q West Nails & Spa at 5th & K a little competition.
Since the women’s shelter closed in December 2012 the only other activity at the 317 H Street NW location was the installation of a big wrap around billboard on the second story. The billboard was rotated to a few different advertisements in the first few months after installation but seemingly hasn’t changed from the current MayorAllen.com ad in over a year.
Hopefully a new ground floor business bringing in rent will lead to the billboard being removed altogether.
