The Embassy of India is branching out to U Street. They've purchased a building around the corner from the new Louis at 14th development for $5.75 million. The spot at 1438 U Street NW which had once been a post office and later a nightclub will transform into a cultural center for the Embassy. That's one of the more exciting possible outcomes for a property that had been vacant and on the market for several years prior. We'll keep you updated as renovations on the building progress.
