GRAND OPENING is scheduled for Wednesday 11/29.”
Ed. Note: If you’ve never been before, consult the map because there is a bit of construction going on out front and it’s a little tricky if you’re not familiar with the area.

I took a sneak peek of the new Jackie Lee’s at 116 Kennedy Street, NW and it’s time to get excited. Given the space and the people involved I feel like this has the potential become the Red Derby/Wonderland for the neighborhood. This is a very good thing. Stay tuned and in the meantime they are hiring servers and cooks. Those interested can email resume to [email protected]

Thanks to a reader for sharing the great news from the Lamond Riggs listserv:
“Good news! We have confirmed with JBG Companies that a lease has been signed for the last remaining retail space at Fort Totten Square, at the corner of Riggs and South Dakota.
Culture Coffee will be opening later this spring.
As those who were there for the very early days of this project recall, a coffee shop was one of our priorities and we are glad that has come to fruition and all the retail is complete.
Go to this website to learn more about the shop.
Please continue to frequent our retail options, which helps provide evidence that our great community can support even more, and a wider variety, of retail.”

“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) announced a Request For Proposals (RFP) for the design-build construction of the next phase of the Metropolitan Branch Trail. The Fort Totten section of the Metropolitan Branch Trail will connect from where it currently ends on John McCormack Drive in Brookland, to the Fort Totten Metro Station.
“This is the next major milestone in the District’s commitment to completing the construction of the Metropolitan Branch Trail,” said Leif Dormsjo, DDOT Director. “A design-build approach will help us engage the creativity of the construction community to bring their ideas to the final design and construction.”
The Metropolitan Branch Trail is an 8-mile multi-use trail that connects Union Station in the District of Columbia to Silver Spring Maryland. The new trail will provide a direct off-street route for bicyclists and pedestrians through the Fort Totten area.
The trail will include LED lighting, security cameras, and wayfinding signage. (more…)
