Because shopping is what you do in Georgetown, developer McCaffrey Interests is turning an 82-space parking lot at 3220 Prospect St NW into two floors of retail and adding an underground parking garage bigger than the lot it's replacing.
They're calling it Prospect Place. (Original.)
"I am delighted that through the development of Prospect Place, W.T. Weaver and Sons continues to grow and serve the community," Bryce Weaver, part of the family that owns the lot, and has owned it for more than 100 years.
In all seriousness, even though Georgetown could probably use some more housing options, turning an eyesore into a walkable destination is pretty sweet.
