Park Eleven


3416 11th Street NW & 3418 11th Street NW, DC – Columbia Heights Coffee and JB's Market – commercial landlord

Purchased in 2002 by the Park Eleven partnership, this double-sized, mixed-use site was acquired with the goals to: refurbish great spaces, establish neighborhood businesses, and provide an east anchor to the emerging Columbia Heights commercial center.

After extensive clean-up and systems restoration of the upper level residential units, the group was ready for a new local retail tenant in the 3416 street-level space. Ideally, this business would be a good complement to JB's Market, a Northern Columbia Heights veteran since 1973. With the expert assistance of Wayne Dickson of Blake Dickson Commercial Properties, Marty Zupanzic, a resident of the neighborhood, was identified as a motivated entrepreneur and the initial steps in the creation of Columbia Heights Coffee were taken. In addition to installing a high-capacity, modern electrical system, the Park Eleven partnership, including n12development, supported the complete Columbia Heights Coffee build-out. In the spring of 2003, the coffee shop opened its doors. Columbia Heights Coffee recently renewed its lease with the group. With more residential and commercial development nearby, Park Eleven is excited by the neighborhood's growing potential.
