Looks like another residential project is coming to 14th north of DCUSA: I've written about three coming near 14th and Spring Road, and now a smaller one is coming to 3441 14th Street NW, just south of Meridian Place NW.
Formerly the DC Kool convenience store and a barber shop, the developers have taken off the brick false front (probably a good thing) and have added two stories to the top of the building. As pop-ups go, that's not enormous, but it remains to be seen how it will look when it's finished.
The permit issued this year says it will be a four-story building plus cellar with a total of five residential units. The building was sold a year ago for $1.3 million.
What do you think? To me, doesn't seem to be an egregious pop-up (yet) and some residential on this area could be a good thing.
Here's the before picture from Google Maps.
