Update
from a resident of the Floridian building next door:

“Residents –

I’ve received an email from JBG notifying that they have issued a “Notice to Proceed” to their Contractor(s). 945 Florida Avenue, which abuts the Floridian is now officially under construction.

As for 965 Florida Avenue (Whole Foods, etc.) – MRP Realty is looking to tentatively break ground sometime in the fourth quarter of 2017.”

“Dear PoPville,

Walked by the other day and noticed they finally broke ground at 965 Florida Ave. Thought readers would be interested in this. Still hoping for a Wegmans over Whole Foods but I think that’s a done deal.”

Ed. Note: Whole Foods is a done deal.

Updates as construction progresses. This is across the street from the recently closed Darnell’s and very close to Duffy’s as well as 9:30 Club.

BarredinDC reported:

“The cozy spot, officially known as Darnell’s at Manchester, shut down after 6+ years after the building housing it was sold at Florida and W NW.”

For many of us, things were never really the same after the Blind Dog Cafe pop up ended. Updates when we learn what becomes of the space near 9:30 Club.

And since I’m getting all nostalgic – anyone remember Mocha Lounge?
