News Bits: 14th Street, H Street, Bloomingdale
- FLATIRON SELLING FAST: Only a week after it formally went on the market, half of the eight condos in Bloomingdale's Flatiron building are gone! Guess oddly-shaped units are popular these days. (O.K., having Rustik across the street is a selling point too).
- MORE OFFICES IN LOGAN CIRCLE: 1525 14th Street NW, which the Historic Preservation Review Board okayed last fall, now has a sign up on the parking lot where it's supposed to rise with the marketing website. Not as exciting as the first idea for the facade, but some good-looking office space nonetheless.
- MARYLAND AVENUE CHURCH SNAPPED UP: Remember Faith Bible Church at 1350 Maryland Avenue NE, which had such great potential? It's finally sold, and is slated for retail on the ground floor with residential units on top, designed by PGN Architects—the beginnings of a happy ending.
