According to the Washington Business Journal, the DC Zoning Commission may re-examine the current restrictions set by the Department of Consumer and Regulator Affairs, which announced last week that they will “no longer approve any new building permits in the region”.  The proposed amendment would increase the amount of ‘frontage’ in the 14th ST NW corridor from 25 percent to 50 percent, making room for a few more restaurants and bars that are currently in limbo.

As a resident of the neighborhood I give the Commission my full support.  There is only so much Whole Foods’ salad bar that one girl can take.

Samantha can often be found daydreaming by the Rothkos of the East Gallery, sketching store facades along 14th, and snapping photos with her vintage polaroid at 9:30 club concerts. Since moving to DC in 2007 to get an MFA in Interior Design, her eyes can’t seem to be peeled away from the beautiful things in this city.
