Walgreen’s and DC

An example of careful historic preservation

UPDATE:

Andrew just took this pic (on his way out of the Metro, of course) of the Cleveland Park Walgreen’s:

Walgreen's being the good urban neighbor

My friend Andrew Aurbach, who has served on Washington, DC’s Historic Preservation Review Board, sent me a link to a blog that discusses Walgreen’s moving into a restored restaurant in historic Cleveland Park (rendering shown above), as well as a neighborhood protest surrounding a new Walgreen’s proposed for the Van Ness neighborhood (below).

Similar to Birmingham, both Walgreen’s projects in DC are within a stone’s throw of existing CVS Pharmacies.

The neighbors don't like it
