I was well on my way to blogging about something else when this Washington Post headline caught my eye: “Apple Store’s Windows Get Georgetown Board’s Okay.”

Apple has previously submitted four other designs to the Old Georgetown Board. They were rebuffed for being too modern, glassy and not keeping within the architectural tradition of the neighborhood. The first proposal came before the board in September 2007.

Apparently, today’s the lucky day for Apple though. The Old Georgetown Board met this morning and approved the most recent design. According to Post’s story, “Apple still needs to win the support of the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts, although it is unusual for the commission to overturn the Old Georgetown Board, which it oversees.”
