Babe's Site Update

ANC 3E Chair Jonathan Bender shared a PDF of the preliminary plan for the former Babe's Billiard site at the intersection of Brandywine and Wisconsin in the heart of Tenleytown.

According to Bender, the ANC will post the application and other details once the PUD is filed.

One commenter on the Tenleytown Yahoo Group has already weighed in:

That is an absolutely beautiful use of the site.

It is nicely scaled and a well-proportioned urban building. It will be an asset to the neighborhood and a significant improvement to a derelict site.

Anyone want to break out the popcorn and follow the usual back and forth on the Yahoo Group?

Why does the building need to look so square, trendy, and frankly ugly? Havent we learned from the cold, ugly library that was just built? This style will look dated and obsolete in another 10 years. Let's design something with taste and character for the neighborhood.
