The DC Property Sales database
has finished its August recess, and now reports that 1003 8th Street, SE, home to Al's Famous Delicatessen, was bought on July 19 for $620,000 by "1003 8th Street LLC." As of a few days ago, Al's was still open, and I haven't heard about any plans for the site. No sign yet, though, as to whether the old Miles Glass building next door is changing hands, which I thought might be the case after Mac's Tire Service closed at the end of June
-- as of now, there's no records in the database indicating that building has been sold, but the database is about a month behind. Here's a photo of the buildings
--the building that sold is the four-story one in the middle, and the Miles Glass building is the funky two-story one on the right.
