We have had our eye on a development project at 3018 12th St. NE (between Hamlin and Irving NE, next to Casey Trees). It’s hard not to, since it has been an eyesore for well over a year. Check out our Tweet about the stalled development from January, where you can see the orange stop work order posted on the building. We recently learned from this article in the Washington Business Journal that the development may finally be moving forward. From the article:
Fred Goodwin’s former Brookland barbershop will be converted to office, according to this permit. The building, acquired by a Centreville, Maryland-based LLC in March 2014 for $380,000, has been a wreck for some time — as evidenced by its assessed value of $172,360, despite being five blocks south of the Brookland Metro. Construction started months ago, but the District issued a stop work order in June for “no building permit,” according to D.C. records. We’re awaiting word from the District as to whether that order has been lifted.
We will let you know when we here anything new.
