Citi Pizza Rebrands as Pizza Walay

17 Feb

New Sign for Pizza Walay on H Street

Citi Pizza–previously New Citi Pizza–has rebranded again as Pizza Walay and has repainted its interior.  There is not currently an online presence, but a Yelp review reports that they offer a variety of pizzas, salads, and sandwiches.  Despite the new name and sign, there is still a sign for Citi Pizza above the new one.  Citi Pizza underwent a major renovation back in 2016 but had recently been listed for sale for $95,000.

According to a construction permit, Ledo Pizza will be replacing Halal Guys at 814 H Street, NE in the near future.  Halal Guys opened last year but only lasted for a few months at the location before closing.  Ledo Pizza has quite a few locations in the suburbs but only has two locations in the District.

Former Touche Live for Lease on H Street

12 Feb

Touche Live Now for Lease

The spot that previously housed Touche Live at 1123 H Street, NE is now vacated and for lease.  The former night club has changed names several times in recent years, going from XII to Touche to Touche Supper Club to most recently Touche Live.  There was controversy recently when ABC 7 news revealed that the business (or some variation of the business) had received a $50,000 grant from the DC Great Streets grant program, even though nightclubs and bars cannot receive such government funding.  At the time, the DC government pledged to review the grant.  Updates when we hear what might replace it.

Construction Beginning Soon for Condos at 7th and H Streets

23 Jan

Location of Future Condos at 7th and H Streets

A fence was recently installed and barricades are now up for a construction project at the corner of 7th and H Streets, NE (down the street from the Apollo building).  The section of the block from 646-654 H Street will soon be demolished to make way for condos and potentially office/retail space from the Rock Creek Property Group (check out the flier here).  Once it is complete, the block will have completely been rebuilt with the exception of the Hikari Sushi building that will remain sandwiched in between the new building and the Apollo building.  This project has been in the works for sometime, but it appears that demolition and the beginning of the project is now imminent.
