14th and Rhode Island Ave, NW

A ray of light on this dreary Friday… From a press release:

“The Logan Circle Shack will be located at 1400 14th Street NW, smack dab in the heart of the District and steps from historic Logan Circle. The Logan Circle Shack will be a new spot for our DC friends to kick back and enjoy a ShackBurger® on its large outdoor patio, complete with picnic tables and greenery. Joining the DC, MD and VA Shacks, the Logan Circle Shack is set to open at 11AM on Thursday, March 16th.

Shake Shack is a critically acclaimed, modern day “roadside” burger stand known for its 100% all-natural, antibiotic-free Angus beef burgers, chicken (no hormones added ever), griddled flat-top dogs, fresh-made frozen custard, crispy crinkle cut fries, beer, wine and more. A fun and lively community gathering place with widespread appeal, Shake Shack has earned a cult-like following around the world.

Shake Shack is excited to grow the DMV-area Shack community, which began in 2011 with Dupont Circle. Our DMV Shack fam has since grown to include F Street, Union Station, Inner Harbor, Tysons Corner, Pentagon City, MGM National Harbor and Nationals Park.

The Logan Circle Shack will open with the Shack App, allowing guests to order Shake Shack when they want it and right from their iPhone. With the Shack App, guests can select their food, choose an available pickup time and it will be cooked-to-order and timed to their arrival.

In addition to the Shack classics, the Logan Circle Shack will be spinning up a selection of local frozen custard concretes: Logan Swirl (vanilla custard, salted caramel sauce, Pollystyle toffee shortbread and chocolate toffee), the all-time fan favorite Shack Attack (chocolate custard, fudge sauce, Baked & Wired brownie and Mast Brothers dark chocolate chunks, topped with chocolate sprinkles) and Pie Oh My (vanilla custard and slice of Livin’ The Pie Life seasonal pie).

In addition to our exclusive Brooklyn Brewery ShackMeister® Ale, guests can pair their meals with local brews from Atlas Brew Works, 3 Stars Brewing Company and Right Proper Brewing. Wine lovers can enjoy a glass of Shack RedTM and Shack WhiteTM wine from Napa-based Frog’s Leap Winery.

As part of Shake Shack’s mission to Stand For Something Good®, 5% of sales from the Pie Oh My concrete support Casey Trees, a nonprofit devoted to restoring, enhancing and protecting the tree canopy of DC. Casey Trees, a longtime partner of Shake Shack, also partners with the DC and Virginia Shacks. Teams from the Dupont Circle, Union Station, F Street, Pentagon City, Tysons Corner and Logan Circle Shacks volunteer and fundraise for the organization throughout the year.

In keeping with Shack Shack’s commitment to green architecture and eco-friendly construction, the Logan Circle Shack’s tabletops are made by CounterEvolution using reclaimed bowling alley lanes; chairs are designed by Uhuru using sustainable materials; and booths are crafted by Staach using lumber certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. The Shack also features a wood ceiling installation inspired by the DC city grid.

Shake Shack is thrilled to share that the Navy Yard Shack will also open later this spring, and will be located in the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood.”

    I rarely complain about architecture, but damn is that building fugly. Such a prominent spot, too.

    • jaybird

      Hello, 1987? Please come and take your architecture back.

      abdo normally does a great job. not sure what went wrong with this one.

    • b

      And one of the apartments was on last year’s Logan Circle house tour – I don’t know when I have ever seen a new apartment that seemed like such a mess in its layout. Seriously, ABDO has done some stellar work over the years, but this apartment building is horrible.

      • Anon

        I agree that this looks rather ugly (not cheap, just ugly), but I’m having trouble believing that one of the apartment units was featured in a Logan House tour last year as this building was still under construction then. You sure you’re not thinking of the newish building on 11/RIA?

        • Phil

          Nope, it was this building; I also went in during the house tour. Absolutely some of the worst layouts I’ve ever seen (they showed two units).

  • FridayGirl

    I was just hoping it would be tonight when I saw this week that they were training.
    In other news, how many times are people going to complain about this building? Every. Single. Post.

    • b

      Ha! I just added my two-cents above (not complimentary), but was unaware it had been ongoing. This will be the last. 🙂

      • FridayGirl

        Hahaha…. no worries, I just find it so funny.

    • textdoc

      Not everyone sees every single post. And frankly, the building kinda deserves it.
      Shake Shack good. Meh architecture bad.

    • Anon

      I’m guessing folks will continue to complain for as long as this building remains this ugly and prominent. Perhaps if the neighboring properties build up to the same/similar height it won’t stand out as much, but that will take some time. (The red brick building just north of this one was part of this development, so that’s not growing any time soon.)

    • MadMax

      I honestly don’t find it all that offensive, as far as generic DC residential buildings go.

      • FridayGirl

        Exactly! I mean, is it attractive? No. Is it worth noting how ugly the building is every time we talk about shake shack? Not in my opinion. (Although y’all can do whatever you want!)

      • maxwell smart

        Perhaps that is the problem… it’s a generic building on a corner that could have had something so much better.

  • uppermostnorthwest

    Love the Casey Trees shout out. They’re the best.

  • Arouet

    Pssst, I sort of like the building. And am super excited about the Shake Shack.

    Now I’m running away before the pitchfork brigade sees me.

    • Rich

      I think we’re past the novelty stage with them. The burger craze seems to have ended, too. Much like the building it’s a warmed over addition to the area.

      • FridayGirl

        Eh, I don’t know if the burger craze ended along this stretch. I’ve been asking the universe for a burger place closer than the Z Burger in Columbia Heights for a good 1.5+ years now and I’m going to be at this Shake Shack at least a few times a month now.

        • jaybird

          BGR or Bareburger?

        • Colin

          Where do you live so that this Shake Shack is closer to Z Burger for you than the Five Guys in Columbia Heights?

          • Idontgetit

            Maybe she doesn’t like Five Guys?

          • Colin

            Yeah, maybe, but she just says “a burger place” which suggests to me that her tastes aren’t too discriminating.

          • FridayGirl

            Wow, Colin. How thoughtful of you. I never said I lived in Columbia Heights. Thank you for telling me about another burger place a block away when I actually live like a mile down the street, thus making your point sound fairly idiotic. Please come back when you tell me about the magical Five Guys between Logan and U Street that I’ve somehow overlooked for the past 2 years.

          • FridayGirl

            Actually, I take that back. It was incredibly snarky and I apologize. My point is, at a certain point I’m not going out of my way for a burger. So it will be great to grab one on my walk home when I want it, without having to go out of my way.

          • Colin

            OK understood.

        • Colin

          I never said you lived in Columbia Heights. You said you wanted a burger place closer to you than the Z Burger in Columbia Heights. I wondered where you lived so that this Shake Shack was closer to Z Burger for you than the Five Guys. In addition to Five Guys, for someone living between Logan and U Street the Shake Shack already in Dupont is closer than Z Burger (20 min walk from 14th and T and 15 mins from 14th and P as opposed to 23 and 31 mins to Z Burger per google maps). Glad to help out!

          • FridayGirl

            It’s just …. nit picky. And frankly I know where I live, I know where I work, I know the areas I frequent because I take the bus, etc. and I shouldn’t really have to justify that to anyone. I realize you were trying to help, but all I said was that I’d be happy to have it because there really aren’t any takeout burger places along 14th…. Le sigh.

          • JohnH

            To be fair, people on here do complain about stuff that doesn’t exist that are 4 blocks away. It’s all a matter of opinion. But yes, there’s an overall lack of fast casual and just regular casual places in the area for the growing population. Boss burger is horrible, which is really the only thing similar. Teds burgers are pretty good to go.

      • Arouet

        I don’t think it’s a novelty. I think they make good burgers and I want a non Popeyes option in my neighborhood. Is that alright?

  • ExWalbridgeGuy

    I walk by this building a lot and, although it won’t win the Pritzker Prize, it looks just fine and isn’t really out of character with 14th street or with that stretch of Rhode Island…

    • JohnH

      My thing is when the apartments are actually done, they will just be covered with blinds 24/7 because you can see into them so easily – I.e the right side, you can see all the way through the room to the windows on the other side of the building.
