Miller Boys Set Sights on 14th Street [CLARIFICATION]
It's been a while since we heard from Ben and Dan Miller, the guys behind the buzziest real estate-related social media tool of last year, and possibly ever. They're biding their time with their new building on H Street, which has been gradually gathering commentary on Popularise, and still trying to figure out a new location for the Autozone that's still sitting on land that might otherwise get developed quick.
Logan Circle, though, is closest to their hearts—the brothers both live around the 14th Street corridor. Ben came by an Advisory Neighborhood Commission committee meeting last night to say they were working on something special: A version of Popularise for an entire commercial strip, a commissioner in the room tells me, and potentially a deal with the Lustine Realty building at the southeast corner of 14th and Rhode Island Avenue NW.*
Ben won't tell me more than that, but says they plan to roll out their plans for 14th Street in a few weeks.
* CLARIFICATION, Friday, 4:55 p.m.: Gary Lustine calls to say that his building is not for sale—he had simply talked to the Miller brothers about finding a tenant for the building's top two floors.
