A friend rented a basement unit in Ward 4 years ago. Not sure if it was legal or not. The DC rental market is tight though and an extra $12000+ a year might sound pretty good to some homeowners these days. It would depend a bit on the house style, but my friends basement was more or less in a colonial (with a side entrance) so I'm not sure it's as unlikely as you might think.

What exactly is the legal definition of corner store anyway? I can't imagine why anyone would be concerned if it's basic foodstuffs. I suppose they could create a zoning category that prohibits alcohol if that's of concern. Personally, it sounds terribly convenient to me, as a person that stops by one of my corner stores on the way home to pick up a half gallon of milk or a bottle of wine.
