ANC approves Apple Store design again as D.C. media runs short on apple puns

Joke.

Tonight, Georgetown’s Advisory Neighborhood Comission 2E approved the design the owners of 1229 Wisconsin Ave  submitted for an Apple store—again.

Yes, this is the fifth time the would-be Apple store has had to appear before the ANC. They will now go on to present to the Old Georgetown Board, that un-bastion of democracy which rejected Apple’s proposed designs a fourth time last month, prompting speculation that Georgetown would lose its little apple.

The ANC unanimously ratified an amendment by Commissioner Charles Eason stating they “reacted favorably to the design … [and they] have no objections to the design.”

Very few (and rather inconsequential) changes were made the proposal that was presented last month.  The Commissioners appeared sick of talking about the Apple store and recommended that the OGB accept Apple’s proposal this time around.

So it’s back to the Old Georgetown drawing Board! (And you thought our apple puns were bad). We’ll have the entire ANC roundup for you tomorrow morning!

  2. It was. I’m compensating for my lack of memory.

    We’ll have to make a more formal introduction next month, and nice work with the D2.

    I wonder if that’s an awkward conversation in the Anne-Ron Lewis household (she’s OGB, he’s ANC).

  4. Theoretically Ron’s recused from any OGB matter. I bet a lot of people would love to end arguments with their spouses by saying “I’m sorry, due to a conflict of interest I’m recused from discussing this matter further. Now please let me watch Top Chef in peace.”
