Storefront Facade Improvement

Tuesday December 3, 2013

Longtime business owner, Frank Glascon, wanted to make the Subway Liquors storefront more inviting. He worked with MVT and a local architect to prepare a plan for the building improvements. With the assistance of the DC Storefront Improvement Program, work has now begun at 500 K St. Storefront improvements include: repointing and pressure washing the exterior; replacement of the front door and transoms; a new storefront and signage; and touch-up paint work.

The DC Storefront Improvement Program provides public funds and technical assistance support to help business owner’s achieve their vision for an improved property. The Program matches funds contributed by the owner to help pay for improvements. Funds are only eligible for the exterior of commercial buildings. Previous MVT participants included Buddha Tree and the former Louis’ Rogue. Both received design and permitting assistance. Work is also currently underway at 924 5th Street, NW.
