Well this is awesome. In today’s ‘next up in new murals’ we looked at an Acorn on 6th and H St, NE. Thanks to a commenter for sharing some awesome info. The Apollo Theatre was located at the site of H Street Storage near Murry’s grocery store:

From Insight Property Group:

“Insight plans to re-develop the site into a high-end mixed-use community that would include approximately 321 residential units and 23,000 square feet of retail space. Total Project Cost: $120,000,000”

Ed. Note: You can see their Phase II plans (across the street) here.

And here’s what the acorn is set to grow into:
