I mentioned this property last year in February.
It's still vacant.
It is still owned by Howard University.
But recently quoted in the Washington City Paper, the Howard University President said ground will break to restore the property in 6 months.
As of today there is nothing in the DCRA PIVS about a permit and it being in an Historic District means a little more work, so someone needs to start doing the paperwork now if anything that looks like real work on the ground is going to happen.
