DC Mud has the scoop:

“The H Street corridor may soon have a new 6-story apartment building and full service grocery store, a boon for the up-and-coming neighborhood in northeast Washington DC. Steuart Investment Company has owned several of the lots on the northeast corner of 3rd and H Streets, and in 2005 assembled a developable site by acquiring the remaining portion from BP AMOCO (BP) for $1.5 million, scotching BP’s plans for a giant filling station and truck depot.”

But what I also found interesting and worth exploring was a comment left by IMGoph who asks:

“i seriously do not understand why trader joe’s doesn’t expand in the city. they are making money hand over fist in that store in the west end.”

I think it’s a great question. If Trader Joe’s is doing so well in the west end – why don’t they expand to other neighborhoods in the city?
