Original GDoN post is: here.

The original listing can be seen here: here.

PoPville original commenters to last week’s GDoN Revisited were completely on target with the expectation that the H Street area property would escalate above list price. The ultimate price of today’s subject historic property, a stone’s throw from the Library of Congress, will likely surprise a lot of people.

The property is situated on an over 4000 square foot lot, which is zoned R-4 and located in a designated historic district. The unconfirmed assumption is that the property has been acquired by a developer. This was the largest lot size recently transferred on Capitol Hill. Two properties with lots over 3000 square feet have settled on Capitol Hill since the beginning of the year.

Here are some news clippings referencing the property going back to the 1930’s, courtesy of a blog called “A Street SE: The History of a Capitol Hill Street”.

The listing agent was Betty Gee of Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc. Phyllis Jane Young of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage represented the buyer in this transaction.

“Did they close?? Sign on the door on Friday night said “closed” but it was on notebook paper, couldn’t tell if it means closed for good or power was out? Tried stopping by Sunday night, same thing… this is a travesty! could it be true?!”

I’m afraid so. 32 Below frozen yogurt opened up back in 2011 at 703 8th Street, SE. Their website is no longer active and their twitter hasn’t been updated since June.

Following K Street, &Pizza will be coming to Barracks Row.


Assuming they get permission to convert the space – they’ll be coming to the OXXO Cleaners space.

“District Doughnut announced today the official opening of their first storefront location on Barracks Row, scheduled for Friday, September 12. The specialty doughnut shop is located at 749 8th St SE, across the street from the iconic Marine Barracks of Washington.

Executive pastry chef and co-founder Christine Schaefer, a graduate of the Pennsylvania Culinary Institute’s Le Cordon Bleu Program, leads District Doughnut’s culinary innovation.

District Doughnut will debut serving a rotating selection of doughnut varieties along with small-batch coffee blends from Compass Coffee. Founded by DC-area natives Michael Haft and Harrison Suarez, both former Marine Corps officers, Compass Coffee imports beans from around the world and roasts them onsite in their new cafe and roastery in DC’s Shaw neighborhood.
