Sky Nails Becoming Nothing Exciting on Bladensburg Road

Local development watchers have noted the closure and gutting of Sky Nails across from the yuppied-out Flats at Atlas on Bladensburg with interest, wondering whether it won't become a new condo building with ground floor retail, considering how quickly the eastern end of H Street seems to be on the ascent. But alas! According to broker Gregori Stewart, who handles quite a bit of property in that immediate neighborhood, it's destined to be a single-story 7-11. Hey, at least it'll be useful when Eastbanc gets around to redeveloping the CVS across the street.

    There already is a 7-11 at 957 H St NE in a strip mall on the south side of the street.

    Disappointing. I had hoped this nail salon would become a wig store.

  • Armando

    I love 7-Eleven and it the one on H Street is not convenient to me. It makes me laugh how people love to complain, but they will be using this store and will probably love that it is here with the convenience of parking in front.

    ...they will be using this store and will probably love that it is here with the convenience of parking in front.

    Most likely the convenience of double-parking out front.

    Convenience stores are nice amenities to have in a neighborhood. I think the unfortunate aspect of this development is that it is going to remain a stand-alone single-story building with parking.
