“Looks like there is some activity at the long vacant storefront at 3100 Georgia Ave in Park View (north west corner of Irving and Georgia).

The proposed use says: ‘Deli, Coffee shop’, but based on the description of the work to be undertaken, it looks like it will be yet another convenience store. I was also unaware that this was ever a jewelry store.

With the new very temporary looking ‘convenience store’ on the NE corner and the 77 market on the SE corner we will now have all but one corner of this intersection taken up by some form of convenience store. Luckily, the remaining corner is a park, so I don’t think we can get a full house.”
