Neighbors who are familiar with the northwest corner of 12th and Hamlin Streets, NE have been noticing activity at the commercial space at 3000 12th St NE. First, the old bail bonds sign was removed from the space above Silvestre’s restaurant in August and then more recently, new windows came in. We recently learned that that the second floor of this building has been renovated and is ready to lease. From the website:
From the owner of 3126 12th Street, home to Brookland’s Finest, comes new community-serving space. This corner location at 12th and Hamlin Streets NE will set the stage for outdoor seating, large windows lining the streets, and 2nd floor and cellar space ready for new tenants. We look forward to this being the next great gathering space for Brookland.
There is also a survey on the website asking for neighbor’s input on what they would like to see go in that space. Take the survey here. We will let you know when we hear anything new.
