North Capitol Street Business Cooridor Advancing

As a result of a discussion after tonight's Eckington Civic Association meeting, I have information that potential business development is advancing on North Capitol Street in a major way. Residents should expect an announcement in the near future concerning a number of marketable store fronts. I believe this is the most significant development for "N. Cap" (you saw that shorthand here first) in years, but I have been asked to keep the details mum. Stay tuned.

I also spoke with Brian Brown, the force behind EC-12, the projected renovation of the retired DC firehouse into a restaurant on North Capitol Street N.W. Brian told me that the exterior permits have been secured and that residents may begin to notice exterior improvements as early as January, depending on the weather. This news is most encouraging.

this really is great news --assuming, of course, that the major development doesn't look like the tragic strip mall around Home Depot.

Kris, I have heard that the guy who owns Creme Cafe on U St and that Yes! Organic Market are sniffing around the neighborhood. Have you heard anything?

i'm just shocked that they aren't referring to it as NoCap.
