There’s a rumor on the streets that Dr. Dremo’s is going to be shutting its doors due to the land being sold out from under it. As always, Dr. Dremo is on the offensive trying to prevent misinformation. Sadly, some of that rumor is true:
he owner of the Dr Dremo (and Taco Bell) property has a buyer. Development plans call for a 10 story building with 170 residential units and 36,000 sq ft of commercial space on the bottom floor
Of course we are hoping that the county will not approve the plans, the land will not be purchased, and Dr Dremo’s will continue at the present location. We are hoping that the county will think the density is too great for one block on Wilson/Clarendon Blvd and deny the plans.
Now, Arlington County has rarely met a development deal they didn’t like (well, excepting one involving a baseball stadium), but I’m hoping they spare Dr. Dremo’s, as it’s the only place that I can get a good pint of Fuller’s ESB on tap. Of course, if you’ve got an idea to help save Dr. Dremo’s, feel free to drop them a line.
