The time has finally come forÂ Team DivaÂ to transition to the next phase in their goal of creating a more community integrated real estate vision. And with this new visionÂ comes a brand new home for the DivaHQ. No – we have not left our partnership with Coldwell Banker Bain, but we have said good-bye to the oldÂ Olive Way CorridorÂ andÂ our times in the Garden Court are now part of the Diva Memory Books. Although some of our favorite digs likeÂ Vino VeritÃ©Â andÂ Tommy GunÂ are on Olive Way, part of our goal is to be more integrated within the Capitol Hill community/neighborhood. We wanted a space where we could be more up to date on the hustle and bustle of the Hill, partner with non-real estate related business folks, have enough space to throw great happy hour parties, and provide a “home-away-from-home” that was still central for all of our Diva Dwellers and Divotees.
We are excited to announce that we have found that space! The Divas have a long been fans and friends with Wazhma Samizay, the creator/owner ofÂ Retail Therapy, one of our favorite shops on the Hill. WeÂ even hosted our first community fundraiser in 2009 and our first everÂ Divas Take the HillÂ in 2011 at Retail Therapy. Now it is not only one of our fav hangouts – it is home of the new DivaHQ. We’ve moved to the bustlingÂ Pike & Pine StretchÂ and settled up in the mod loft space at Retail Therapy. Not only do we have more lunch and coffee options (which still overwhelms us!), but we’ve spruced it up something fierce and created a makeshift second living room for the Diva Family. So next time you find yourself on the Hill and want to see a friendly face, dance around to some funky tunes, or laugh at the newest Diva music videoÂ pick, you know where to find us! Make sure you stop by the new DivaHQ atÂ 905 E Pike. As long as the Divas are in you are always welcome to come on up and say “hi”, enjoy an espresso, or maybe do a little shopping when you need some “retail therapy.” Hope to see you at the new HQ soon!
