4915 Georgia Ave, NW

I’ve always been fascinated by this bar turned church and since long vacant on Georgia Ave. And I’ve said to myself when this storefront gets renovated – it will mean this section of Georgia Ave will begin to be revitalized. So I did a triple take when I saw the signage above (covering the small Jesus lettering) announcing funding for a new project.  Anyway it got me thinking about other symbolic revitalization spots that had been long vacant  like the Wonder Bread Factory, Howard Theatre, the Boilermaker Building, Uline arena and others.  So what renovated or soon to be renovated vacant building most represents DC’s revitalization to you?
