Thanks to a reader for sending the plans from maedwell companies:

“The Denizen will be a luxury mixed-use development in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Northwest Washington, D.C. The project will include 14 units in two connected buildings. The four-story buildings + Penthouse, located on the west side of North Capitol Street, will feature studios, one, two, three, and four bedroom luxury apartment units, approximately 10,000 square feet of retail space and a below-grade bike storage facility. The buildings will feature unique residences with 10′ foot ceilings, large walk-in showers, floor-to-ceiling windows, off-street parking, panoramic views of the city and a highly-appointed rooftop terrace.

Development Highlights

Targeted retail businesses: Bakery, Co Working Space, Coffee House, Teachers Kitchen, Italian Restaurant, Nail Salon and Gym/Yoga Studio.
Feature green roofs
Pedestrian walkway/central plaza through the whole development”

Yesterday Washingtonian reported (thanks also to those who sent links):

“The developer’s president, Syga Thomas, tells Washingtonian exclusively that he’s in talks with potential cooking school and grocery tenants for the ground floor of the building at 1634 North Capitol St., NW.”

Updates as construction progresses and the deal is sealed on retail.

The Potomac Roasting Company is stocked with excellent coffee to meet almost any palate. But that’s not the only good news. We now offer free shipping for orders over $35.

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality beans sourced from small farms in Latin America and Africa that are owned and operated by women. We will make sure that your coffee is roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.

Our newest coffee comes from Mbozi, Tanzania. We secured a shipment just before this small batch of delicious beans sold out. In Swahili, Usawa means balance and Kahawa means coffee. The beans are grown on small farms that are part of a cooperative promoting gender equity and market access for women. This is a smooth and balanced coffee that is sure to please.

We also received coffee shipments that were delayed following the tragic collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge. That includes the most recent harvest of La Morena coffee beans from Huehuetenango, Guatemala. We have plenty in stock, so that you can stock up! Rounding out our specialty coffee choices are fresh roasts from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia and Peru.
