Prince of Petworth mentioned last week that the building next to Marvin, at 2001 14th street, is going to be Patty Boom Boom, when before, he and others, had reported that a building around the corner, at 1359 U street would be the location. I went back to the two buildings and checked out their permits to see what I could find out.
1359 U street will be Patty Boom Boom, according to the permit on the window. The building permit is for demolition. The owner of the building is listed as Yama Jewayni, a co-owner of Marvin (scroll down on link for article on Marvin), which makes sense as many have reported Patty Boom Boom as coming from the owners of Marvin.
The building around the corner, at 2001 14th street, is listed as being owned by Thomas Tsianakas, long the owner of the property going back to when it was a Burger King. The building permit is listed for a 2 story addition as well as renovation to the existing building.
So, problem sort of solved: these buildings are owned by two different individuals and apparently seem to be unrelated. However, I have another question, while inspecting the building permits I noticed that both had expired, yet construction appears to be on-going. The one on 2001 14th street expired in 2007 and the one on Patty Boom Boom’s location expired in 2008. Anyone know how that’s possible or is it illegal?
