Huge week for Logan Circle continues with some scuttlebutt about the rest of the retail for the new building at 14th and Rhode Island Ave, NW. On Monday I was happy to share confirmation about a Shake Shack coming to the old Caribou Coffee location. Now a very good source says that the two other retail spaces, either in that building or next door will be taken over by the Hilton brothers of Marvin, Brixton, El Rey, Satellite Room etc. I’m hearing that they will be opening two new bars in two separate spaces. I’m not exactly sure how the logistics will work but stay tuned for many more updates when/if confirmation comes.

Ed. Note: Last week we learned “Eric and Ian Hilton, renowned for creating neighborhood mainstays including Georgetown’s Chez Billy Sud, and The Gibson along 14th Street, will open The Brighton, a high-energy waterfront pub.”


This unit is located at 1224 13th Street, NW. The listing says:

“Rare 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath condo in classic Logan Circle row home. Terrace level with private entry. Functions well as 1 and den. Tons of natural light. Beautiful granite counters, gas fireplace, hardwoods. Easy walk to P St. Whole Foods, 14th St. Corridor, K St. corridor, Shaw and more!”

This 2 bed/1.5 bath is going for $480,000 ($300 monthly fee.)

Props to Jenna Golden for digging up this help wanted post from parent company J.Crew:

“Store Director, Madewell, 14th Street NW *NEW STORE*”

Their website says:

“What is Madewell? For one thing, we’re jeans makers. But we also focus on all the things you wear with denim: timeless leather jackets, great boots, slouchy tees and have—forever totes.”

Timothy Paul closed back in August. Update: a very reliable source indicates that the location for this Madewell on 14th will actually be in the former Universal Gear space closer to U Street!! Stay tuned for confirmation/exact address on 14th.

A Madewell at this location should appease those who were disappointed about the J. Crew “men’s products only” store coming nearby to 14th and Corcoran Street, NW (which is also hiring.)

11th and Rhode Island Ave, NW

Now if you do like Shake Shack… A reader reports:

“Looks like there’s a fancy looking gym coming to the Holm apartment building at 11th and Rhode Island.”

Cut Seven’s website says:

“Cut Seven is a sports conditioning experience driven by the motivation and camaraderie of a team. We focus on a different muscle group each day of the week, ensuring the variety necessary to deliver full-body results.”


Ed. Note: Helluva transformation at 11th and Rhode Island – remember the old Diamond Cab set up:

Thanks to Alex for sending word: “Looks like the shake shack at 14th and Rhode Island is a go! Going to need to get some bigger pants for the winter.”

Back in March we shared some scuttlebutt about Shake Shack looking to come to Logan Circle. Confirmed and now we know where – the former Caribou Coffee location at 14th and Rhode Island Ave, NW. You can see Shake Shack’s Dupont menu here.


Like how the whole building turned out?
