New Columbia Heights Destination Open by Fall

With demolition of the old Bi-Rite Super Market location now complete, 3DG Development is progressing steadily with construction of Columbia Height's soon-to-be newest hotspot, Meridian Pint - a Belgian beer-centric restaurant, bar and lounge from John Andrade, the current owner of Asylum on 18th Street, NW.

John Goldman, CEO of 3DG
, tells DCmud that, "Demolition has been occurring in phases since we started in September, but we're now done with demolition and are going upwards with steel and framing at this point… The core and shell [are] to be complete by June and doors [will be] open by fall."

Located at
3400 11th Street, NW, the site will also will also host second-story office space, to be occupied jointly by 3DG and Somilar International, a DC-based sustainable tourism consultant. Since breaking ground on the project in April of last year, the development team – which also includes 3DG as an architect – has met with the surrounding community as recently as March 11th, when they made a presentation to the local ANC 1A. In keeping with their all-in-one modus operandi, 3DG Construction, LLC is also serving as general contractor on the project.

I'm really looking forward to this. I live close to hear and this place sounds cool, especially if it has a similar vibe to Asylum while offering some cool beers. The architecture is kind of.. weird though.
