A building permit has been issued for a new Rite Aid in the old Glover Park Hardware space (2251 Wisconsin Ave.), according to the Washington Business Journal. “Work will include demolition and installation of a rear elevator and a sprinkler system,” WBJ reports.

The dearly missed hardware store will return to the neighborhood soon, in the vacant space next to Breadsoda (2233 Wisconsin Ave.). Due to delays related to the installation of a freight elevator, the store won’t reopen until mid-June at the earliest, the owner tells us.

From the April 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

 Glover Park Hardware is scheduled to reopen this month. The store, which lost its lease at 2251 Wisconsin Avenue in January, has rented the basement storefront next to Breadsoda at 2233 Wisconsin Ave. The vacant, 7,500-square-foot space is the former home of LADO language school.

“We love our Glover Park community and we were committed to reopening in this neighborhood,” co-owner Gina Schaefer said in a press release. Neighbors interested in news of the reopening can sign up for bulletins by emailing gloverfans@acehardwaredc.com.

The six new luxury condominiums at 2140 Wisconsin Ave. went on the market over the holidays, and one was under contract by mid-January, according to Nate Ward of Capital Park Realty. Ranging in price from $425,000 to $1.2 million, the one- and two-bedroom units feature open layouts, huge plate-glass windows, and Thermador ranges. There’s parking at the building’s rear for the two penthouse units—each of which comes with a rooftop deck. For information, visit cparkre.com.

From the December 2014-January 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

 A new Glover Park business brings its clients together to solve a puzzle: how to get out of the place. At Escape Room DC (2300 Wisconsin Ave., Suite G-102), up to eight visitors get locked in a room together; the group has 45 minutes to figure out the combination to the safe that holds the key. (Co-owner Ginger Flesher watches the proceedings on closed-circuit video and provides hints if the group gets stumped.) Escape Room DC opened on October 16.

Flesher, a retired math teacher, and her husband, Darren Sonnier, got the idea for the business during a trip to Europe over the summer. “In each of the cities we visited, we found that there were live escape rooms,” Flesher recalls. “We thought we’d try one when we got back to DC and discovered that there weren’t any,” apart from one in College Park, Maryland, that locks its clients in a room with an actor playing a zombie.

The couple, who live in Chantilly, hunted all over the region for an appropriate spot for their business. They needed somewhere their clients would feel safe walking after dark. “When I drove into Glover Park, I said ‘This is the place’ before I even saw the building,” Flesher recalls. “It’s a very friendly neighborhood.” Escape Room DC costs $28 per person. Entry is on Hall Place, around the corner from Starbucks. For more information visit escaperoomlive.com.
