Anyone Know What’s Up With this Vacant Building at 22nd and O St, NW?

2230 O Street, NW Abandoned Apartment Bldg

“Dear PoP,

I was wondering if you or any of your readers could give me any information about this abandoned building on the corners of 22nd and O Streets, NW. It has looked this for about a year. One year ago a Public Notice sign went up, but other than replacing the bricks on the outside of the building about 10 months ago, nothing has changed. In fact, the front has recently been painted white. Have you any information about this eyesore?”

Any rumors or scuttlebutt of what’s going on here?

  • The owner died while renovating the building and his children and wife are fighting for ownership rights, it is a disputed property and nothing can be done till there is a settlement.

    It was a sudden unexpected death and there was no will.

  • If it’s the one I’m thinking of, it’s been vacant alot longer than a year. Built around WWI with an experimental brick with a high fly-ash content, the brick is very soft and does not hold up well to moisture. A difficult building to rehab.

  • I’m glad someone asked about this…my boyfriend lives across the street (not the retirement home) and we always comment on how nice it would be if they turned it into something useful. It’s been like that for years

  • I like going in there to do drugs and hide stuff that I’ve stolen.
