From a press release:
“Today, the owners of Dacha Beer Garden announced a major revision in plans for a second bar and restaurant venue to be located at the southwest corner of 14th and S streets in northwest D.C. The venue is planned for one of the few remaining undeveloped parcels along the bustling commercial corridor recognized as among the city’s most vibrant areas.

Update from a resident of the Floridian building next door:
I’ve received an email from JBG notifying that they have issued a “Notice to Proceed” to their Contractor(s). 945 Florida Avenue, which abuts the Floridian is now officially under construction.
As for 965 Florida Avenue (Whole Foods, etc.) – MRP Realty is looking to tentatively break ground sometime in the fourth quarter of 2017.”
Walked by the other day and noticed they finally broke ground at 965 Florida Ave. Thought readers would be interested in this. Still hoping for a Wegmans over Whole Foods but I think that’s a done deal.”
Ed. Note: Whole Foods is a done deal.
Updates as construction progresses. This is across the street from the recently closed Darnell’s and very close to Duffy’s as well as 9:30 Club.
