What Should Replace Govinda Gallery?
The art gallery first opened in 1975 and was located at 1227 34th St. NW.
Let's call this a modern spin on community planning—Patch's version of a charette, a digital drawing board where all ideas are on the table.
Each week we'll present a new vacant building and ask you to tell us what you think would be the best use. Forget what zone it's in, ignore setback regulations, dump lot coverage rules and all the other zoning jargon. If you had your way, what would you like to see there? What would be the best use for the community?
Since January we've asked you all about several shuttered businesses, including:
- Griffin Market
- P Street Frames
- Garrett's Restaurant & Railroad Tavern
- The Frame Shop
- Philadelphia Cheesesteak Factory
- Gap Kids
- 1344 Wisconsin Ave.
- Commander Salamander
This week, we're turning out attention to the space that formerly Govinda Gallery, a gallery focused on contemporary and pop culture-inspired art was located at 1227 34th St. in Georgetown. The store closed up shop last year.
What would you like to see in its place? A small diner? A bookshop? A pharmacy?
Be sure to weigh in with your ideas in the comments section.
