Report from Park View UNC Meeting

While several issues were discussed at last night’s Park View UNC meeting, the highlight was definitely the presentation by Ted Trabue of the Green Builders Council of DC and architect Greg Kearley of inscapestudio as they presented their ideas for the properties at 3628-3632 Georgia Avenue, DC.

It seems that their concept has evolved since PoP first reported that a bar was coming to Georgia Avenue. The Green Room looks to be anything but a typical neighborhood bar. From the drawings displayed at the meeting the goal is currently a high end, media heavy space. Emphasis will be on seating rather than packing folks in. Entertainment may be anything from sports to politics to music. As you might expect, the newly crafted space will meet the minimum LEED Basic level for green buildings.

The Current proposal is only for the building at 3632 (next to Looking Glass). If the economy picks up, they hope to have the planned five-story building they ultimately envision started in 3+ years. Time will tell on that.

Other meeting topics

Other items that were raised were concerns on traffic speed along Park Place, street cleaning along Park Place, a proposed curb cut on Warder Street, and illegal dumping behind the Fisherman of Men Church. I’ll report more on these topics as they are more fully developed in months to come.

    thanks for sharing. Do you know if Rock Creek Market is still on schedule?

  2. Kent Says:

    Actually, that’s a great question. Last I heard the Rock Creek Market was shooting for mid-August after the windows where broken. I haven’t seen any major work since then though, so I’m guessing it will be closer to the end of the month. I’ll post an update when I hear something definite.

    Hello Parkview Community,
    In regards to the Rock Creek Church Market, they had some delays with their suppliers and contractors. However, they are looking to open this week. Ill post the date when they tell me, but everything looks great. I will see you all on the beat.

    Several of us were wondering what was going on with the market today.
