The Washington Business Journal reports that furinture retailer Room and Board is scouting for a D.C. location. They seek a 35,000 square-foot, free standing building to buy in D.C. that’s an "older building with character." They do not want to be in Georgetown; 14th and U Streets and Dupont are apparently the current areas of interest.
Wouldn't it be cool if Room and Board would set their sights on lower 9th Street? I think 1314 9th Street would make an awesome furniture store and is primely located near downtown, the convention center, Logan Circle, and amidst a lot of neat local businesses like Long View Gallery, Maruka and be bar.
