Burger King near Union Market Purchased by “team responsible for Union Market’s development”

Urban Land Company reports:

“Part of the development team responsible for Union Market’s development has purchased the existing Burger King site at 320 Florida Avenue, NE. It’s too early to have exact details on what the plans are for the site, but it is adjacent to the parcel purchased by LCOR, Inc. that is planned for 188 apartment units.”

And in other Burger King news – the one at 501 G Street, NW in Chinatown has also closed:

  • UGH! Now where am I supposed to get my sausage egg & cheese croissan’wich?

  • This is one of the more disgusting fast food places I’ve been to.

      When I lived on Parker St, I used to eat there fairly often (before I started eating healthier). I always found that one to be clean and the service to be good. At least a lot better than the Methadone McDonald’s and Dave Thomas Circle Wendy’s.

  • Might have to stop in there once just so I can experience it before it’s gone.

    So is the FL Ave one closed now?
    I generally don’t eat fast food, but of all the fast food joints, Burger King with their flame broiled Whopper was a nice hangover treat every once in a while.

    Pretty soon you won’t recognize this place. We promise.

    Also buried in the press release in the link, the old warehouse at 3rd and Randolf is going to become loft condos.

  • Didn’t the Union Market developers also purchase the shell of the old Cap City Diner to eventually re-open it? Since the property is already zoned for commercial food vending, that would be the place to put it.

  • There is still a Burger King in North Cleveland Park, on Connecticut Avenue, that even has a drive-thru.

  • I hope they open a Sonic

    • A drive-up diner would actually be really fun here (with plenty of walk-up seating too of course)… bring back the roller-skates!

  • I am so happy to hear this. I hope they shut down the Burger King and put in something else. If people still want a burger joint then maybe a Shake Shack, Cali-Burger or place a bit more enticing…

  • I can’t wait to see what this area looks like in 5-7 years.
