Fragers Hardware Pre-Fire

Frager's Hardware at Penn 11

Rebuilding a piece of history

1101 Pennsylvania Avenue housed Capitol Hill institution Frager’s Hardware until 2013, when a fire gutted the building. The new 85,101-square foot redevelopment of the site will include stabilization of the historic façades and construction of the new residential building with 8.500 square feet of street-level retail space. Frager’s Hardware will return, occupying its original position, with an outdoor garden center. A 2014 redevelopment deal with Roadside Development did not come to fruition and the current development team purchased the site in 2015, granting Frager’s a 25 year lease for their former location. In 2017, John Weintraub, who has owned the century-old Frager’s since 1975, contracted to sell to AFCHS (A Few Cool Hardware Stores), which also owns Logan Hardware and is part of the Ace Hardware Cooperative.
