Dear Apple,
Forget Georgetown. The parking is lousy and there is no metro station. When my Mac mini needs a fixin' or whatever, I don't want to bring it on the bus or haul it on my bike. I could, but I don't want to.
When Georgetown rejects you for the umteenth or whenever you're tired of submitting design proposals you know won't fly with the ANC and the Historic Preservation people, come to the land of the Green line. Columbia Heights, U Street, Gallery Place and Penn Quarter would love to have you. Yes, these areas have historic districts, but they also like business. And the thing with Gallery Place, it's still called Chinatown so you'd have to put Chinese characters on your signage. That shouldn't be a problem since a lot of what you have comes from China anyway.
Gallery Place also has a bunch of hipster white earbud pod people walking around with office drones and other people who will buy your stuff. People like tourists from places where there are no Apple stores. People who want to kill time before a game.
So come to the land of the Green line, you'd like it over here.

I second that emotion.

I think the Chinese symbol for Apple is an apple. So that might work out well and save on costs for extra signage.

first i heard in was the old Reed Electric site on wisconsin near Q and then heard it was the old French Connection store near Cafe Milano. Which location is it?

yes, iwant too!

i don't really understand why apple is only looking at georgetown for DC either. PQ would be perfect for an apple store.

I'm not sure I agree that NAYPLACE in DC "likes business," but yeah, as dcist noted, if they had Pierre L'Enfant design it himself, the ANC is going to reject it.
