Thanks to Bridgett and everyone else for sending the news about a Streets Market coming to the former Metro K grocery store that closed at the end of November.
Thanks to Arianne for sending:
“There was a rally to save the metro k market in Adams Morgan last night.
The landlord has jacked up the rent. Many people have signed the petition to have them stay.”
The Washington CityPaper reports:
“Borger Management’s Joe Borger wrote to say, “I am happy to report that we have an executed lease with a grocer for 1864 Columbia Road NW.” That grocer is not Metro K Supermarket.”
1864 Columbia Road, NW
Updates when we learn more.
Ed. Note: Earlier in the month we learned from The Grill From Ipanema (located next door):
“We have two lots of restaurant space in that building and we have decided to lease/sell one. But we will remain at 1858 Columbia Rd with cozy and intimate restaurant.”

This rental is located at 2201 Massachusetts Ave, NW. The Craigslist ad says:
“$2650 / 1br – 600ft2 – Furnished house in Dupont/Kalorama for rent with private garden
The house is located in Dupont Circle/Kalorama right on Embassy Row, steps from the metro. It has a private garden, dishwasher, washer and dryer, and lots of storage. Built in 1901 by Paul J. Peltz, who designed the Library of Congress, it was the carriage house for the Argyle/Miller house next door, and was the first automobile house (aka garage) built in DC. Olga Hirshhorn made it her Washington home after her husband, Joseph Hirshhorn (of the Hirshhorn Museum), passed away. She dubbed it the Mouse House due to its tiny size and because a cat carved into the facade of the building above faces the house. There is a replica of the house in Naples, Florida that contains the artworks that Olga (unfortunately) didn’t leave in the house. There is a mural by artist Dana Westring in the bedroom.”
