Dear PoPville – Progress at 12th and S St, NW

“Dear PoPville,

When I walked past this building at the corner of 12th and S sts NW today I noticed they had recently done a lot of work. Wasn’t this going to be a deli or something? Do you know anything about it?”

Back in May ’10 we heard a deli could be coming to the space at 12th and S St, NW. Anyone live nearby – know what’s going on? Who’s coming?

  • I heard its going to be a cactus store.

  • I don’t know, but I love their candy corn traffic cones!

  • Ugh, the last thing this neighborhood needs is another cactus store. Can’t we get something the whole community can enjoy, like a reasonably-priced diner or rec center?

  • I walked by, acted very excited, and asked one of the guys working what was coming in. I think he said “apartments,” although I had trouble understanding him. The store front window doesn’t really lend itself to that either. I’ve always thought it would make a great cafe/ice cream shop — owners would make bank on the after-school rush!

  • Hmmm…last time I saw those candy corn traffic cones they were at the corner of 14th and S.

  • I have no idea what is going on there, but the cacti in the windows look great!

  • If a store or restaurant opened in this location I’m not sure they would be able to sell beer/wine because of the school across the street.

    What would do great would be a bakery/market/coffee shop with outdoor seating. There really isn’t anyplace like that around. The 10th St. Market, a few blocks away at 10th & S, is such a waste of space.
