Construction Near Howard Theater in Shaw

“Dear PoP,

What’s going on with all the construction in the small triangular corner lot between the Howard Theater and Florida Ave NW? Is there going to be a building there or are they just going to landscape it? Maybe it has something to do with the work getting started up again on the Howard Theater? It is August, after all, and wasn’t it supposed to start sometime this month?”

From the photo I took it seems that DDOE is simply removing/repairing a leaky underground storage tank. Which I suppose is very good news. I would be surprised if a building went above it but I’ll be sure to keep an eye on the space. Anyone else hear specific plans about this little lot? I did hear that work at the Howard Theater was supposed to resume soon but let’s just say that I’ve become very skeptical about those timeframes. I feel like we’ve been burned so many times with false starts. Though I’ll certainly post when construction resumes. In the meantime I suppose fixing a nearby leaky underground storage tank is a good first step…
