Good news! The US Post Office-once feared to be closing at its 14th and Wallach Place location-is now definitely staying in the neighborhood.
We have known that USPS decided to attempt to keep the post office in the area. But its new location was subject to site and lease negotiations.
The lease with eth DC government and USPS is fully executed.
The Post Office will occupy a large space on the ground floor with direct street access. The build out is currently being planned. And we should be able to announce an opening timeline very soon.
It should also be added that the Kalorama post Office in Adams Morgan was also taken from the closure list as a result of this successful process.
We worked effectively with Mayor Gray and his team, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, Gerald Roane, the DC postmaster and his staff, to save this vital service for DC residents. Thanks for all their great work!
This is very reassuring for all the people who live and work in the 14th and U Street corridor, numbers that are about to increase dramatically with new development in the next 18-14 months.
