The Wonder Bread Factory.
The Wonder Bread factory, a former baking warehouse turned office and retail project at 641 S Street NW (map), is nearing completion. Douglas Development recently posted some updated photos of the project on their website.
The retail and office building has undergone a major renovation, as Douglas restored the historic facade and added significant square footage to the interior. The factory stopped manufacturing tasty baked goods in the 1980s and has been vacant for close to 20 years.
When complete, the basement and first floor will have several retail tenants, and the upper levels will contain office space. Douglas’ Paul Millstein tells us that, though the company is in talks with a few potential tenants, no one has officially signed yet. The new project will join the many retailers on the way to the 7th Street and 9th Street corridors, including a beer garden, oyster bar, fish taco and lobster roll shop, and a coffee house.
More photos below.
