Down in Penn Quarter Douglas Jemal’s comany is asking residents for their support to attract a Whole Foods on 7th between E and D Street NW. So if you want to sign their petition click here.
I’m torn about support because Douglas Development, also the cause of nasty commerical tax increases in Shaw.
IMGoph reported on the Bloomingdale (for now) blog a new service that one can see what houses are private, tax exempt, etc on a nice little map. Well I went to look at the DC Citizen Atlas, saw a tax exempt (I think, as I can’t tell brown from red) property in that hood, and clicked on it I saw listed as the city neighborhood, TRUXTON CIRCLE.
Hopefully, that settles it. But then again it might have been settled prior to this, as I haven’t heard much against the name since Spring.
