Offices and Retail Coming to Bladensburg & M NE
Douglas Development is redeveloping an existing building at 1151 Bladensburg Rd NE into offices and retail. The development will be 18,000 square feet, with roughly an even split between office space and retail. The retail portion will be divided into two separate spaces, similar in size. The office portion will occupy two floors on the southern part of the structure. There is a parking area planned for the roof of the building, accessible through the alley. All told, there will be 17 off-street parking spaces on site. I previously heard this property was going to be converted into residential, but looks as if those plans have changed.

The last operating tenant of 1151 seems to have been Lin's Enterprises, LLC, doing business as Columbia Wine & Liquors, which closed shop some time before I moved to the neighborhood.
1151 Bladensburg is the first building I took a photo of after moving to Carver two years ago. I was walking around on one of the first nights living here and just really liked the building and industrial feel of Bladensburg Road. I still love this photo.
