Developer Jim Abdo‘s lawyer tells me that he’s withdrawn the zoning application for his planned 70-ish-unit building in the empty space between 14th and 15th Street on Rhode Island Avenue NW, and declined to give a reason for the reversal. It’s not an unprecedented thing for Abdo; he’s proposed building on top of his office and the Caribou Coffee building on 14th Street, and not moved forward there either.
