The northwest corner of 8th and L, in March 2011. This is 720 L St SE, where a developer has been endeavoring since late 2010 to build a beer garden. The bar would have a tavern-class liquor license (supported by ANC 6B, albeit with some reservations
). The Historic Preservation Review process stalled for more than three years, but things got underway in late 2014. (3/04/11)
An old view of the 8th Street frontage, in 2011. The only structures on the lot before construction were some corrugated tin sheds that were not deemed historically significant. (3/3/11)
This is not the actual design. This is what was originally being planned back in 2011. The actual design will be much more of a true "beer garden," with mainly outdoor space and a small service building for restrooms, a bar, and perhaps small food prep. A parking pad for food trucks will be available.
