I’ve getting a number of emails about the Murrell Building at 4201 Georgia Ave, NW:

“I saw folks working on the 1st floor of the Murrell Building on Upshur last night and was curious what the future held in store for the space. I think there was talk about the building on the PoP site a couple of years ago but haven’t found any more about what’s happening.”

In March we learned that owner of nearby Petworth Citizen, Upshur Street Books and Crane & Turtle (and of course Room 11), Paul Ruppert, planned on opening a diner here. Though details remain slim, CityPaper reported the name will be Slim’s Diner. And it looks like there’s an interesting interim use too. Thanks to @Petworthnewvie for tweeting us the info yesterday:
