In addition to the places mentioned, there’s also a nifty community garden close by (Wangari Gardens), and a suprisingly good Ethiopian hole-in-the-wall restaurant at Georgia and Columbia (Kokeb). A little further down form Harrar is a coffee/sandwich place/African bookstore (Sankofa). We’re half a mile form the 11th st restaurants (Room 11), and half a mile from the Park View restauarants (Looking Glass, etc). I love living in the neighborhood.
As far as future development goes, if Howard ever gets around to building Howard Town Center there will be another grocery store less than a mile away. There’s maybe half a dozen apartment/condo buildings going up on Georgia in the Pleasant Plains/Park View section. Oh, and the Georgia Ave streetcar line is supposedly in phase 1. It will run from Union Station to Washington Circle, north up 14th, east over U, and then north up Georgia to Petworth metro. I wouldn’t hold your breath waiting for that one though.
