UNION STATION—There's a 377-apartment building coming to the plot next to Union Station and it will have the city's second pet spa for a residential building. Other amenities include an eco-pond, rooftop garden, and outdoor dog walk. We have a few renderings to gander at.

DCThe dating app called Let's Date passed on some interesting data about the dating preferences of DC singles. Apparently we really like to drink and women don't actually like the sensitive type.

ADAMS MORGAN—The small space trend has reached new heights (or is it lows?). Eight new apartments will be built without windows, but each will have a skylight so the inhabitants can remember what the sun looks like.

GEORGETOWN—How about a few pictures of Cole Porter's chairs from his city apartment? The new issue of Veranda looks at a home with those pieces and more luscious decor. We have a few pictures.

VIDEO—The recent Portlandia episode parodied a guy that makes wood furniture and it just might have been inspired by a DC furniture maker. Do check out the video.

GLOVER PARK—We found a good deal near Wisconsin Avenue—a two bedroom for less than $400K.

RACKED DC—A new men's clothing pop-up called Indochino is coming, a luxury trunk show at Tysons Galleria is this weekend, and more retail and fashion news.

SHAW—The semi-new pub Cause that raises money for charity is in a hot neighborhood. We've found ten choice properties for people who want to live in walking distance of the new watering hole.
