From the Mayor’s Office:
“Today, Mayor Bowser announced 2500 14th Street, NW as the site of the Ward 1 Short-Term Family Housing program, marking another step forward in the Administration’s effort to close and replace DC General Family Shelter with dignified, service-enriched programs across all eight wards.
“Ending homelessness is a citywide challenge that requires a citywide solution. Today, with the selection of the Ward 1 short-term family housing site, we are one step closer to closing and replacing DC General,” said Mayor Bowser. “We are grateful for the partnership of Councilmember Nadeau and the Commissioners of ANC 1B, and we look forward to continuing to work with the Ward 1 community as we move forward with this exciting project.”
The Ward 1 site is the final location selected in the District’s citywide plan to close and replace the aging and isolated DC General Family Shelter. The site plan includes 35 short-term family housing apartment-style units to support families experiencing a housing crisis; 15 units of permanent supportive housing for seniors; and improvements to the Rita Bright Family and Youth Center, which is also located at the site. Construction at the site is slated to begin in January 2019 and be completed by the spring of 2020. (more…)

From a press release:
“Five cutting-edge, growing retailers are giving Georgetown a shot. EastBanc Inc., Jamestown LP and Acadia Realty Trust announced today a curated collection of storefronts that are entering into the D.C. market and opening their first showrooms in Georgetown’s shopping district. Up-and-coming brands, Illesteva, State & Liberty, AUrate New York, Rapha, and MacKenzie-Childs, have picked Georgetown as the ideal home to reach D.C. trendsetters, area fashionistas and visiting shoppers. These in-demand, emerging merchants have chosen our nation’s capital to expand their merchandising enterprises outside of their home operations headquartered in New York, Michigan and London. All of the lease agreements, with the exception of State & Liberty, may extend indefinitely beyond their initial term and could be a permanent addition to the Georgetown shopping scene.

Gonzaga College High School (19 Eye Street NW) will ask DC liquor licensing authorities for a tavern license. However, teachers there should not start looking forward to a day when the faculty room has a mixologist to help take the edge off.
Stephen Neill, Gonzaga’s “Senior Vice-President for Advancement”, along with an attorney, appeared at the December 5 meeting of Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 6E/Shaw to reassure that the school was not going to become a tavern. (more…)
