Well this DC Government property has been on this blog since January 2014 and 2 years later it looks like it is getting fixed up and may join the land of the living. According to the DC Property Tax database the DC government purchased this thing back in September 2004.
old 2014 post, you can see from the photo that the building was boarded up, with peeling paint and the yard was a mess.
So if the government got it in 2004 and waited until 2016 to do something, something being sell it or have a non-profit or a developer do something, that's 12 friggin years of being an eyesore, and nuisance. Twelve years.
Is it me or does 12 years seem too long?
Well I'm glad this and possibly the neighboring property are possibly coming back to use as someone's home. Finally.
