Foundry Closes Atlas Court Location

A reader alerted me to the fact that vintage decor and clothing shop Foundry by Freeman has closed its Atlas Court location. A shop representative confirmed the closing and said they are currently looking for a new space somewhere in the District.

Shame. I liked popping in there occasionally and the women that run the place are so kind. Hope they find a spot where they can get some good traffic.

I was completely unaware this place existed.

I had no idea this place existed and I love this sort of stuff. Total fail.

It was my understanding that this building is zoned residential and was never intended to be a commercial/retail space.

they should turn Foundry into high-end, luxury, locally sourced, sustainable lofts. I went there once. You could probably turn that place into 40-50 studios--priced around $2,000 each. Maybe put some retail on the first floor-doesn't matter what; as long as it is retail. Damn--that's a good idea. Is it for sale?

Would these locally-sourced, sustainable lofts be artisan? How about free-range?

I also had no idea that this place existed. I'm sorry to see it moving to a new location but I hope it does well.

Was Foundry ever actually open? Almost every time we tried to go there, it was closed.

I went there once. They had lots of cool stuff, and the prices were quite reasonable. I really liked the cheaper "Flea Market" stuff on the ground-floor. I bought a porcelain-glazed door sign that said "Toilet" there for $5 and put it on my bathroom. So people wouldn't get confused and poop in the bedroom. It has worked well thus far.

Wow, never in a million years would I have expected Inspire to be a drug delivery spot. Shame, and I imagine most of the young men working there (who did a good job) knew that.

"Police said they watched as packages were transferred from Pryor’s Toyota Yaris "

What kind of kingpin drives a yaris. A YARIS?

You would think a major dealer would drive a
Lexus, or a Caddy or a Navigator.

What's next, dealers using Capital Bikeshare?

Pat, I've actually seen a corner boy using the red bikeshare around Trinidad.
