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.
