The CityPaper's Housing Complex blog is reporting that the Hoagie House property at 4th and N Streets, NW, has been sold and will be devloped into apartments with a cafe on the ground floor. The property was sold to Abbas Fahti, the former owner of Shaw's Tavern (who was denied a liquor license by the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board).
Housing Complex also reports that the property was sold by ONE Ministries LLC, which had previously planned to convert the property into a facility for after-school youth programs.
