ANC 1B Commissioner Myla Moss confirmed on a listserv yesterday that the long-empty building on the northeast corner of 7th and Georgia Avenue NW is slated for a 7-11. The space is kitty-corner from a CVS, and Moss has a bone to pick with Doug Jemal about his choice of tenants:
It has been confirmed by Douglas Development that 7-11 will indeed be moving into LeDroit Park on 7th & Georgia Ave. NW. According to Douglas Development (DD) construction is due to begin very soon. I am awaiting more information specifically, timeline of construction, did 7 11 lease or buy the space, if leased for how long. I submmitted comments to Douglas Development voicing my outrage that DD did not interface in any way with the community regarding this site. They sought no input no sharing of info etc. I encoruage the community to voice their displeasure about this decision directly to Mr. Douglas Jemal. Please let Mr. Jemal know that we do not appreciate having a developer make decisions about projects within an historic community without coming to the residents.
