Hoagie House at 4th and N Streets, NW, Sold for Development

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.

  1. While it would have been nice to see what ABC's Extreme Home Makeover would've tried to do with the place had historic restrictions on renovations hadn't have killed the idea I think that a coffee house a la Big Bear in this neighborhood would be a welcome addition to the neighborhood. Good luck to Mr. Fathi who will undoubtedly be more careful regarding technicalities of DC permits than in his previous venture on Florida Street.
