From an email:

Locale Workspace wants to know if Kennedy Street residents want a multi-use communal co-working space. One of the co-founders has lived in the neighborhood for over 4 years and wants to expand their current concept into a new space that embodies more communal access with other components in addition to co-working such as coffee/tea, food, books, events, etc.

The survey can be found here.”

This house is located at 5219 5th Street, NW. The MRIS listing says:

“Investor Special! Estate Sale. Selling As-Is. Needs full renovation. Currently occupied. DO NOT DISTURB the occupants. Listing agent must accompany for showings. Check open house schedule for available times to view.”

You can see more photos here.

Ed. Note: I’m really at a loss for why they would include so many photos of the interior that are clearly not good. As the home is currently occupied, this whole listing is just very very sad.

This 2 bed/1 bath is going for $399,000.

5501 14th Street, NW

I’m getting giddy. Though the eye catching bright green shall be missed, the rendering (above) for Moreland’s Tavern looks great. And the history is freaking phenomenal. More info on the chef and menus coming soon!

Here’s some more background on the restaurant replacing Swampoodle from one of the owners of Boundary Stone and DC Reynolds:

“We are still aiming for a Fall opening with the name Moreland’s Tavern.

Some history here on Moreland’s Tavern:

Moreland’s Tavern is where the soldiers from Fort Stevens used to go to eat and drink during the civil war. Fun fact about Fort Stevens, it was also the only Fort to see any action during the civil war and actually defended the city from the Confederate Army. So basically Moreland’s Tavern saved D.C. It was also the first place place to welcome people into the city, and the last stop on the way out with Georgia Ave being a main thoroughfare.”

“Dear PoPville,

There are a lot of rumors swirling around the 16th St Heights neighborhood that the people behind Boundary Stone are taking over the Swampoodle space. Their sponsoring the Kennedy Street Festival only strengthened those rumors. Have you heard anything about this? Something you can get to the bottom of?”

BREAKING: One of the owners of Boundary Stone is indeed in negotiations to take over the Swampoodle space at 14th and Colorado Ave, NW. Now keep in mind the negotiations are still ongoing but if I was a betting man I’d say there is a very, very good chance this will happen. STAY TUNED for many many more details if/when it does.

Last night a reader reported around 10pm:

“possible shooting at 5th and Jefferson NW Street closed & cop looking for casings (looks like it at least).”

Other residents have been inquiring about the incident on the listserv, will update when/if MPD responds.

Also this morning readers write:

“There were at least 10 police cars on the corner and they had blocked off the Randolph Street coming off of 14th St NW. Any idea what’s going on over there? They had a fancy looking guy in a suit walking towards what I assumed was the site of the incident.”
