2301 Georgia Ave, NW

Washington Business Journal says Fuel should open in Spring 2013:

“Fuel will occupy about 2,300 square feet at 2301 Georgia Ave. NW, next door to a new Potbelly’s location. It will be the third Fuel spot, following its other D.C. restaurants at 1606 K St. NW and 600 F St. NW.”

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t this pretty big news for that area? I live near here and I remember thinking that when Potebelly came in it was huge. There’s not a lot of sitdown places on this stretch of Georgia, even though it seems as though there should be with the HU population right there. I think this is a good sign for GA Avenue.

    I think Georgia Avenue is getting pretty nice, really fast so it’ll take something more to impress it. It already has a HIlton Bros Chez Billy in Petworth and will betting a sessy safeway. Wake me when Trader’s Joes moves in. Yawn.

      Wake up and venture down to the area just north of the interesection between GA and FL avenues. It’s actually not getting very nice and still has a lot of slum-ghetto real estate just across the street from HU. I don’t get why that is.

        Yes there are pockets of blight but just south of where you mention is the shaw metro development, Progression Place in the spring http://progressionplace.com/7th-flats-at-progression-place/. I’ve been on Georgia Ave for 20 years. It’s super nice, super fast. Trust.

        Slum-ghetto huh? You like others in here need a reality check.

    OK GABoy, it’s because awesome businesses who will help lift up that corridor will eventually move there but have not yet, give it time…

    Good news. The students have suffered due to a ball dropping decades ago by corrupt HU presidents in cahoots with residential and commercial slum lords (who happened to be white, GABoy). It was never going to be Cambridge, MA but could have been more than an extension of the ghettofab corridor it became–hair salons, athletic shoes, catmeat-serving carryouts, busted housing. Redevelopment literally leapfrogged the university, whereas in most cities the university drives it. Look at 9th, U st and portions of Florida, over to Sherman, across to LeDroit, down to Shaw and Bloomingdale, up to Parkview. HU students shop at DCUSA for doem supplies, rather than trek to Md. or Va. The university still has little to do with an improving commercial and housing profile. Its just that the changes are finally catching up. But in true Howard style, I’m sure they will claim credit. My wife, an alum, will kill me for saying that. LOL

      So what happened ProfChris? Did the HU presidents get paid off to prevent new development?

        When real estate prices skyrocketed, HU finally woke up and got it: they own many of the vacant buildings along GA Ave and realized that they were sitting on a gold mine. All of a sudden they stopped resisting development.
