On my walkabout last weekend I heard some very interesting scuttlebutt about the property currently covered by netting above that will sit next to the future Evolve headquarters. I heard that the property was bought/leased by the owners of Fly Lounge. Fly Lounge is the Dupont club located at 1802 Jefferson Place NW just off Connecticut Ave, NW. Their Web site says:

Cruising at 30,000 feet can be a rush.

Such is the rush that will be felt by passengers at Fly Lounge a streamlined, destination lounge for the ever-mobile elite.

Transporting guests to new realms with non-stop service nightly, Fly Lounge embodies all the elements of the proverbial private escape.

As a late night connection, Fly Lounge will offer a 5 day a week flight plan to accommodate the most discretionary of tastes. From the early night rendezvous to the Red Eye shuttle, Fly Lounge will offer a roundtrip ticket to paradise.

I have also heard from other folks that there will be some sort of dance/dj component to this space. Anyone else hearing these rumors?

Well at the very least it looks like the building will make for an interesting ‘judging buildings’ discussion soon:
