Thanks to a reader for sending word and snapping a few photos of this great development. The reader writes:
“I saw a Permit sign in the small retail space on Columbia Road right by the BB&T at 18th Street, NW – it used to be a locksmith shop. Well, the sign shows it be slated to become a garden supply shop. That would be pretty sweet. The C of O sign lists the operating name as Urban Sustainable and the retail type as Garden retail.”
Looks like this is 1787 Columbia Road, NW. I remember the locksmith because they used to have a sweet Dean Martin bobble head in the window. I look forward to checking out the garden store when they open!
