“Dear PoPville,

I was walking on P Street NW between 15th and 14th and noticed that in the last few days the window coverings have been taken off the old Logan Hardware and a new office of some sorts has opened and a full renovation has taken place. However, there is NO sign. Do you know what has taken over the space? And why it isn’t some type of retail or something?”

Ed. Note: The new Logan Hardware is now open at 1734 14th Street, NW.

The Washington Post reported:

“The 1885 rowhouse at 1322 Vermont Ave. NW in the District sold Monday for $3.9 million. It is the highest residential sale ever in Logan Circle, according to a TTR Sotheby’s spokesperson.”

Can’t believe I never made this a house porn – thankfully we can still see the virtual tour here.

Thanks to a reader for sending:

“This is in the old Homemade Pizza at 14th and Church. Sounds interesting. I love me some maki rolls.”

HomeMade Pizza closed back in June and in September when Kushi closed in Mt. Vernon Square we learned that the owner was going to bring some sort of Japanese concept here. And Maki Shop it is. Stay tuned for an opening date.

Thanks to ncjohn for sending from the 1400 block of Swann Street, NW yesterday. We’ve previously checked out some sweet yellow leaves from the gingko but this is totally wild. ncjohn theorizes that “the cold air caused all the leaves to drop off all the ginkgo trees at once.”

And ‏@SharonBYang tweets us the amazing photo (check it out after the jump because it’s huge): (more…)

Last month we learned Shinola Detroit (bikes, watches etc.) would be opening a permanent location at 14th and R Street, NW in one of the retail spaces at the former Central Union Mission (Central Union Mission moved to a newly renovated space, the former Gales school near Union Station.) At that time we also heard some scuttlebutt that Shinola would open a pop up in the former Escrow space across the street until their permanent space is ready. That scuttlebutt turned out to be true and they’re now open – Sun.-Fri. 11am-6pm and Sat. 11am-7pm.

Back in August we learned that there were plans to bring back Crow Bar [closed in ’98 at 20th and K St, NW] to the former Ghana Cafe space on 14th Street just south of Rhode Island Ave in the former Ghana Cafe space. In following up on the progress, one of the partners now tells me that the deal fell through. Updates when we learn who next takes over the space.
