From the October 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

One local reveler recently took the concept of “identity theft” a little too literally. Shortly after midnight on August 22, a man was smoking on the sidewalk in front of Good Guys (2311 Wisconsin Ave.) when a person accused him of being too young to smoke, according to a police report. The accuser, who seemed “very intoxicated and confused,” also suggested that the smoker’s cigarette contained marijuana rather than tobacco, the report stated. When the smoker produced his identification to prove his age, the drunk grabbed the ID, hopped into a white BMW, and took off heading north.

When you’re out and about, hold onto your phone. On Wednesday, September 16 at about 4:30 p.m., a woman was walking southbound in front of Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches (2428 Wisconsin Ave.) with her iPhone 6 in her right hand. Someone approached her from the front, snatched her phone and Bose headphones, and ran through the Pearson’s parking lot into an awaiting four-door Ford sedan, according to a police report. The sedan was last seen fleeing southbound on 37th Street.

New diesel-powered Georgetown University Transportation Shuttle (GUTS) buses are causing a racket along their Wisconsin Avenue route, according to someone who lives and works nearby. The fleet of 16 buses, which stop in the 2100 and 2200 blocks of Wisconsin before heading south to campus, was replaced last winter. That’s when residents of condo units at 2111 Wisconsin Ave. started noticing loud, roaring engine noise from GUTS buses several times an hour, a tipster tells us. Calls and emails of complaint to the university’s Office of Transportation Management have yielded no noticeable action, the tipster added.

Robin Morey, vice president of planning and facilities for the university, told us that he had not heard any complaints about the the buses, but that now that he is aware of neighbors’ concerns, he would investigate. Georgetown maintains a 24/7 community help line for neighborhood residents with quality-of-life concerns at 202-687-8413.

From the October 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

A local hotel’s bid to build a rooftop deck is facing stiff neighborhood resistance. The Glover Park and Massachusetts Avenue Heights advisory neighborhood commissions have protested the Savoy Suites Hotel’s application to serve alcohol on its rooftop, and the Massachusetts Avenue Heights Citizens Association has appealed a building permit for the deck that was issued in May. Opponents of the deck fear that it will create late-night noise and exacerbate local parking woes. The hotel, located at 2505 Wisconsin Ave., is undergoing a major renovation, at the end of which it will be renamed the Glover Park Hotel.

The Savoy recently won one small administrative victory in the deck fight. On September 9, the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board dismissed a protest filed by a group of 17 near neighbors, because only one member of the group had actually signed the protest letter. The group was given 10 days to sign and resubmit its letter. A status hearing on the matter is set for October 14, and a protest hearing on November 18.

The new apartment building behind Washington Sports Club (2251 Wisconsin Ave.) is nearly ready for occupancy. At press time, 2255 Wisconsin was offering new tenants a 1.5-month break on rent if they moved in by November 1. The building of one- and two-bedroom apartments—which rent for $2,000 to $3,300—features an interior courtyard and rooftop deck. The development is pet-friendly, though it has some breed restrictions. For more information, visit 2255wisconsinave.com or call 844-209-4518.

Balance Gym (2121 Wisconsin Ave.) is undergoing a renovation that will enlarge the gym’s weight training area, add a group exercise studio, and double the size of the space devoted to CrossFit Glover Park. The redo will also add indoor access to the gym’s lower-level workout area, which is now accessible only from outdoors. Space for the renovation will come from taking over two vacant office spaces.

The construction is expected to last for two months, but club management anticipates minimal disruption for members during that time. “Most of the work will be completed on our newly acquired space, with very little impact on the existing club during construction,” explains CrossFit director Emily Baskin.
