Awesome. Thanks to Steven for sending:

“Looks like the first bus island is being built on 14th Street as part of the Streetscape project. This is at 14th and N. They’re apparently going to stretch all the way up to Florida. It explains why they’ve been tearing down shelters up and down 14th. They will be move to the islands once they’re built.” (more…)

“Scuttlebutt: Liquor store on corner moving to 7th St. NW b/c rent is too high (14K). Last day is July 31st. Owner apparently looking to bring a coffee shop in.”

“Dear PoPville,

Saw this sign in the door of Chicken + Whiskey today. Have you heard anything?”

I’m happy to report that Chicken + Whiskey is doing very well – this signage is for the space upstairs. As for the Dacha coming to the parking lot next door – I have no idea. Maybe since Navy Yard opened they’ll now focus attention here? Anyone know hear anything?

DC Fire and EMS first reported at 2:34pm:

“#DCsBravest on scene of a structural collapse in the 1300 block 13th St NW. PIO enroute and will provide more information upon arrival.”

One reader speculates it was related to the F-35 fly by that happened around 2pm:

“It was super loud and I’m also pretty sure that the vibrations it was giving off (every building was shaking) contributed to the building collapse at 13/N NW. The building there was already super fragile and didn’t seem well supported for construction, and this was just the thing to push it.” (more…)
