Neighborhood in the News


In case you missed them, here are a few stories we came across this week covering the greater Tenleytown area that we thought were worth a second look:

  • Valor Development came back to the community this week with revised plans for a mixed-use development at the former Superfresh grocery store at 48th and Yuma streets. Urban Turf reports that Valor is still proposing up to 250 units and the inclusion of a grocery store, but has redesigned the architecture of the project to mitigate the visual impact on the surrounding neighborhood. As expected, traffic and parking remain concerns of nearby residents. ~ A Scaled Back Proposal Pitched for AU Park Superfresh Site
  • A legal battle between the founder and owners of the Z-Burger restaurants made the pages of the august Gray Lady. The dispute over who owns the burger chain’s stylized logo and name has been in court for more than a year. Tucked inside the New York Times’ peek behind the burger counter, look for the paper of record’s designation of Tenleytown as a “reviving Washington neighborhood.” ~ Z-Burger Case Shows Value of Trademark Protection
  • American University Park and Friendship Heights made CBS DC’s list of the top five neighborhoods for kids to trick-or-treat in the city. Of course, we locals already knew our area can’t be beat for little ghosts and goblins, but check out what the local media outlet had to say about our community. ~ Best Neighborhoods to Trick-or-Treat in Washington, D.C.
  • And a last word on Halloween. If you will be celebrating with a few drinks, please take advantage of a free ride home offered by Sober Ride and the Washington Regional Alcohol Program. ~ Free Cab Rides Return for Halloween
