National Association for Home Care & Hospice Building Space a Drain on Weekend Market Energy
by Larry Janezich
Never a contributor to the Eastern Market human or retail dynamics, the first floor of the building which houses the lobby organization for the home care and hospice industry continues to be vacant. After successive first floor tenants of a mortgage company and Community Connections (now occupants of the Haines Building on 8th and Pennsylvania) the space continues to be a drain on the energy of the weekend market scene. When built, the first floor was intended for retail. Stanton Develdopment reportedly had a retail tenant for the space, but the was turned down by the building’s owner.
