The post office branch at 1915 14th Street NW closed on Saturday, April 28 in preparation for its eventual move to a new space at the Reeves Municipal Center. The sign on the door says that the post office hopes to re-open in its new location  at 2000 14th Street NW by late June.

For now, all parcels for zip codes 20009 and 20010 must be retrieved at the Columbia Heights Finance Unit at 3321 Georgia Avenue NW.

The post office at 1915 14th Street leaves its home – in a one-story post-1968 building – following a decision to transform the space into an apartment building with first-floor retail at the southeast corner of 14th Street and Wallach Place NW.

Councilmember Jim Graham (D-Ward 1) announced on March 30 that the lease for the new post office branch was a done deal. Given the U.S. Postal Service’s budget deficit (and the closure of many branches nationally), there was a real possibility this branch would not be relocated.
