Armenian Genocide museum and retail?

14th and You reports on plans to develop an old bank building at 14th and G into an Armenian Genocide Museum. The Spy Museum showed that a museum can contribute to an active street around it, with a visually appealing facade and a cafe. Will the new museum do that? Will it at least maintain the retail storefronts on the block?

I think it will be a really tough sale to open any retail store next to a Genocide Museum or even a bright sunny coffe shop.
