Horse’s Ass Award Nominee – former Labamba Sub Shop


Ed. Note: We last noted the property was gutted back in May 2013 and before that when a car drove into it back in May 2012.

“Dear PoPville,

This is the (former) Labamba Sub Shop, on the northwest corner of Euclid Street and Georgia Avenue NW.

From the tax records, it looks like this property was purchased or perhaps foreclosed upon by one “Uniti Bank” in late 2009 or early 2010. (The recordation date is 1/14/10.) I don’t see any indication that this property is being taxed at either the vacant rate or the blighted rate.

And it gets even more curious from there…

I had never heard of Uniti Bank. The street address in the tax records — 2479 18th Street NW — puts it in Adams Morgan, in the building that houses the takeout place North Sea. The door to the left of the North Sea entrance says “Tech Printing” in the Google Street View photo, and the sign for the third floor says “PINKY,” which I think is a manicure joint. No sign of Uniti Bank.

The website for Uniti Bank shows only three offices in California — no offices anywhere near D.C. Hmm…”
