Utopia Project at 14th and U On Track; ChiDogos May Be Gone This Fall
DCMud reports that the Utopia project at the southwest corner of 14th and U Streets NW is on track with demolition of selected buildings to begin this fall — just opened ChiDogo on 14th Street being in one of them. According to DCMud, “… also on the chopping block is the United Supreme Council building, the Domino’s location, Taco Bell and Kentucky Fried Chicken. The buildings which house Ace Check Cashing, McDonald’s and El Paraiso are historic and will remain intact.” The development will house 220 rental units and 20,000 square feet of retail space.
