Dear PoP – What is Going on with Building at 14th north of W St, NW?

“Dear PoP,

Did you ever find out what was going in at the empty building on 14th and W?”

Well I don’t have a lot of info but I can finally say it is going to become a restaurant. You can see from the photo above that this is a complete gut job. On one of the renovation permits you can see that the proposed use for 2208 14th St, NW, between Midtown Youth Academy and Dynasty Ethiopian Restaurant, is a Restaurant.

  • I don’t think any restaurant in particular is slated for the space yet since there is a giant for lease sign up there.

  • The previous commenter is correct. The previously abandoned building is being completely renovated and expanded with the intention of attracting a new restaurant tenant. The design, by Bonstra Haresign Architects, received ANC support and HPO approval for the renovated facade, which will retain the minimal historically significant details that remained (existing cornice and existing openings on the right side) while creating a new double height opening with street-level bay on the left side, which had been significantly altered from it’s original form at some point in the past. The resultant design is intended to be sensitive to the historic context through the thoughtful insertion of contemporary interventions within the facade. The renovated space will feature two levels of seating, a semi-private dining area at the upper street face, and outdoor terrace off the second floor.
