Dear PoPville – What’s Going on with the 14th and Q St, NW Laundry?

Dear PoPville,

I’ve noticed the infamous homeless guy who was living on the outside of the run down laundry building is no longer there. Do you think they could be ready to start construction on the rumored restaurant there? Additionally, there’s no trespassing signs on the window and PepCo was at the building two weeks ago doing work.

I also noticed the homeless man, Michael and things had been removed:

In early Feb. we learned that a Voluntary Agreement has been signed paving the way for construction to begin on the new restaurant by Stephen Starr to be called Parc Deux. Looks like things are indeed moving forward. They’ve also applied for an outdoor seating area. We’ll revisit as construction progresses.
