Seven Robberies, Seven Hours — Seven robberies were reported around the area in less than seven hours, and police think some of the robberies might be connected. [NBC]

Tool Time — The group behind Logan Hardware and several other hardware stores in D.C. will open a new 5,000-square-foot hardware store at 1700 Columbia Road NW, the site of the former Ontario Theater. [Washington Business Journal]

Frankencondo — A “bizarre new Frankenstein condo” has one blogger in Columbia Heights perplexed: “I was walking down 13th Street and at Otis saw something odd under construction: a modern-ish residential building where there used to be a townhouse with a big porch. What’s extra strange though is that it’s attached to what looks like other half of the townhouse.” [New Columbia Heights]

Jerk Store — A restaurant called “Jerk Station” will open in the former Sweet Mango space in Park View. [Park View, D.C.]

Going Up — A Dupont office building houses one of D.C.’s rarest professions. [Borderstan]
