Quite awhile ago we heard rumors of a sports bar, then in September there was an update in September that they were hoping for February 2011, and DCMud mentioned it briefly.
Not sure of the time span yet, but if I hear updates, I'll let you know. The windows are covered with brown paper so I couldn't see inside. I would guess February 2011 isn't going to happen, but who knows?
UPDATE: From ANC1B commish Lauren McKenzie, who posted this in the comments: "Their voluntary agreement was just approved at the ANC 1A meeting on Wednesday, and the builders indicated they hoped for a March 2011 opening. There's supposed to be summer garden as well - similar to Commonwealth."
