I’m always amazed at the contrast of the new buildings with the old school row houses. Incidentally a reader just wrote me:
“No crystal clear development news yet at 14th and Florida, but Jemal has plans for the area. Nice.
Also, Union Row’s Dry Cleaner opened at 14th and V”
Douglas Development is in the process of acquiring the necessary permits to raze a vacant auto lot at 2221 14th Street, NW. (Ed. Note: at 14th and Florida)According to Douglas Jemal, President of Douglas Development, his corporation acquired the bafflingly named “Latino Auto Sale” five years ago; now, under the creative title of “Jemal’s Hookers, LLC,” he’s planning to scrap it for a new retail development intended to service the increasingly crowded 14th and U Street corridor.
Below is a different angle of the building in the above photo, looks like it could be pretty cool:
