    “They said to one another, ‘Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly.’ And they used brick for stone, and they used tar for mortar [and they built a temple for the priestly class in NoSha].” – Genesis 11:3

    I wonder how long it is going to take for some a-hole in the new building to complain about the noise the 9:30 Club generates and ruins one of the best musical venues for all of us.

      That is something I worry about. I moved into this neighborhood in large part for the music venues. I really hope it doesn’t get ruined.

    This area has really risen from the ashes of the 1968 riots. Also, it is offering some wonderful, diversity of architecture, which is good for the human spirit. NOW: Howard University needs to get out of their lawsuit with the OLD Howard Towne Center developer so the parcel (North of V, between 7th and 8t,the area can maximize its potential when Howard (in need of cash) sells this parcel and a beautiful structure is restored with modern additions.

      +1. A lot of D.C.’s new architecture looks pretty meh, but I really like the Atlantic Plumbing building.

    Bryan – Thr 930 Club contains it music and it isn’t audible from the street or nearby homes. They are a respectable long time neighbor. That is unlike the bars who blast music onto streets (U Street clubs) and over serve drunk patrons very late at night who scream throughout the neighborhoods (yes that’s you American Ice – who never reminds patrons to be respectful of neighbors).

    I liked the old Atlantic Plumbing building … better.

      I don’t. So I guess our opinions cancel each other out.
