Just a bit mind-numbing considering all the development on that block during the past 20 years. And that property giving off a boarded-up vibe for much of that time.

Pardon me, coming to AdMo, from a press release:
“Adams Morgan looks even more colorful, as new banners designed by a local artist have gone up throughout the neighborhood. The Adams Morgan Partnership partnered with local creative agency Maga Design to create a new visual identity for the neighborhood in 2018. Then, building upon this new “look,” the Partnership commissioned artist Rebecca Williams for original art to update the neighborhood’s light pole banners.
The street pole banners are part of a broader placemaking and community building effort. In the next few weeks, more than 100 banners will be installed in the neighborhood’s primary corridors, on 18th Street, Columbia Road, Florida Avenue, Calvert Street, and the Duke Ellington Bridge, welcoming neighbors and visitors to the community and marking this area as Adams Morgan.

This 7-11 closed in March of last year for remodeling and neighbors want their 7-E back!! Restart the clock to T-2 months.
