From the March 2014 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

Oscar Amurrio has applied for a permit to add a restaurant to his home at 2138 Wisconsin Ave. The mansard-roofed brick rowhouse, which has for years been obscured by a blue construction fence, sits next to the vacant lot at 2140 Wisconsin where developer Zak Elyasi is building eight luxury condominiums. On the other side of Amurrio’s property is 2136 Wisconsin, a tan, blocky architectural monstrosity that now houses SunBrite Windows and Doors on its ground floor and rental units above.

Amurrio, whose father was born in Spain, says he plans to build a front addition to his home that would house a Spanish restaurant on the ground level. The second floor would house Amurrio’s decorative plastering business, Eight Brothers, and the upper floors would include two dwelling units. The building would have a modern glass-and-limestone façade, in keeping with the glass-front condos going up next door, he says.

In October, the city government issued a stop-work order to Amurrio for doing foundation work on his property without a permit. He filed his building permit application on January 9.

2136 to 2140 Wisconsin AveFrom the May 2013 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

The vacant lot at 2140 Wisconsin Ave. (a few doors up from Café
Romeo’s) will become a “very nice, top-of-the-line” condominium
building within a year, according to local developer Zak
Elyasi. The lot—hidden for years behind a construction fence—was
recently purchased by Elyasi’s parents, Abdul and Ramzia Elyasi of
Greensboro, North Carolina. Son Zak, managing member of Raz Development,
says plans are in the works to construct a residential building
that may include ground-floor commercial space. The development
group hopes to begin foundation work within the next month or two
and complete the building in the spring of 2014.

The family recently completed a project in Columbia Heights that
yielded two spacious luxury condo units, Zak says. Asked whether the
Glover Park building’s façade would be as close to the sidewalk as its
blocky beige neighbor at 2136 Wisconsin Ave., he replied that while
final plans have not yet been drawn, “it’s going to look nicer than that
beige building.”

The lot’s previous owner, Davar Ashgrizzadeh—who also owns
Café Romeo’s—bought the property in 2008 for $995,000 and sold it on
March 22 for $1,250,000, according to city land records.
