Blockbuster closed at 1751 Columbia Rd, NW in Aug. ’10

The Adams Morgan BID released some very interesting news at the very end of a newsletter sent out at the end of last month:

“We’ve also learned that Citibank has signed a lease in the former Blockbuster location at 1805 Columbia Road, NW and that the new owners of the former Adams Mill Bar and Grill at 1815 Adams Mill Road, are close to signing a lease with a new tenant.”

Fmr Adams Mill Bar and Grill space at 1815 Adams Mill Road, NW closed in Feb. ’11

Since I heard a new tenant was close to signing I’ve been digging around to see who it could be. Now when they first closed, I thought a Panera would be taking over the space but that didn’t turn out to be the case. Though, it turns out, that scuttlebutt may not have been too far off the mark. So take this with a grain of salt, as with all scuttlebutt, but I’m now hearing that a Corner Bakery is likely moving into the space.

At the moment the only official Corner Bakery coming soon location is the one at 6th and H St, NW in Chinatown. I’ll update if/as more info becomes available.
