1416 P Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

I was walking on P Street NW between 15th and 14th and noticed that in the last few days the window coverings have been taken off the old Logan Hardware and a new office of some sorts has opened and a full renovation has taken place. However, there is NO sign. Do you know what has taken over the space? And why it isn’t some type of retail or something?”

Ed. Note: The new Logan Hardware is now open at 1734 14th Street, NW.

Car Break-in on 11th and U:

“Just wondering if anyone has noticed increased car break-ins in the area? I have some video footage from the cameras that were on the house my car was parked in front of, and I’m wondering if it might be helpful. Around 2am on 11/14 my window was smashed and my computer was stolen (I know, I know, it shouldn’t have been in there, but I will say, it was NOT visible.. on the floor under a pile of gradebooks. Lucky thief). Any leads would be appreciated.”

The Washington Post reported:

“The 1885 rowhouse at 1322 Vermont Ave. NW in the District sold Monday for $3.9 million. It is the highest residential sale ever in Logan Circle, according to a TTR Sotheby’s spokesperson.”

Can’t believe I never made this a house porn – thankfully we can still see the virtual tour here.
