Big news — furniture retailer Room & Board has purchased the vacant warehouse at 14th and T Streets (1840 14th Street NW). Room & Board won't open a store in the space until early spring of 2010, but DC blogs are all excited about the news. The former auto warehouse is an interesting addition to the Room & Board family since their Minnesota headquarters is in an old car dealership! The 31,600 square foot space has been empty for the last four years and though there were lots of proposed plans for the building, nothing was confirmed until the Room & Board announcement. More info below the jump...
The store is expecting to employ about 50 employees (design associates and staff members) at its store and distribution center.
