The 1400 block of P Street is getting a third bank branch with TD Bank joining Wachovia and PNC Bank. TD Bank will open in the Metropole building.
The retail spaces in many of the new developments in the Logan–U Street are quite large in comparison to the storefronts in older buildings and converted row houses. One of the few exceptions on the 1400 block of P NW is the small space that houses Pitango Gelato on the same block.
The large size of the retail spaces in the new buildings seems to guarantee that we will get banks, furniture stores and larger restaurants instead of a variety of smaller retailers.
