509 O St NW- Still Vacant, Still Falling Apart

There is a little less of the building since this photo was last taken. It is a study in how a building can slowly fall apart.
I pass by it often, at least once a week. It is still an eyesore that apparently no princes nor principalities can redeem.

didn't the woman who owns (owned?) this get taken to court a few months ago, and fined/forced to sell or repair it?

She went to court, the city was supposed to raze the property, but changed their mind.
I've given up hope.
