Update on Renovations to 3622 Georgia Avenue

3622 Georgia Avenue has been under development since spring.

3622 Georgia Avenue has been under development since spring.

Back in April I reported that the long empty and blighted building next to Lion’s Fine Wines and Liquors was finally getting fixed up. I’ve long thought that this property has one of the more attractive facades on the 3600 b/o Georgia, but it was in such a state of disrepair that I thought it would be lost to the streetscape.

The construction permit was issued in July for the existing 2-floor & basement building with a 1-story rear addition. Recently, on October 16th, the permit was revised to change the roof profile to include a front dormer for the existing building (which sounds a bit odd, but I guess time will tell).

Below you can see the progress being made to the rear of the building.

This is an important one to find out what the use is, because I remember the group that was doing the work before indicated it was for something I’m not sure the neighborhood would like. That was about 3 years ago, though, so hopefully its a completely different owner.

      This is a different group … I haven’t figured out the intended use thought. They actually got permits before construction this time around.

        That’s great new, I didn’t want to say it because it might have been speculation, but the old group was from a displaced strip bar in Southeast!

    Wasn’t there some speculation that this would be a cigar bar?

    I’m curious to know too!
