Room and Board is coming to 14th and T

It's official! Room and Board is coming to the corner of 14th and T Streets.

Nearly six months after its deal to buy the former Taylor Motors dealership at 1840 14th St. NW fell through, Minneapolis-based furniture store representatives say they were able to secure financing for the deal.

Room & Board bought the 31,600 square-foot building from Four Points for an undisclosed amount. Under the previous deal, the company was to pay $9 million.

Room & Board, which currently has nine U.S. locations, said it plans to open the American-made home furnishings store next Spring.

We welcome Room & Board to our neighborhood and wish them well in their repurposing of this significant building. They will join our burgeoning furniture and accessory marketplace along 14th Street and U Street. Let the renovations begin!
