Dear PoP – Buildings at 8th St. NW between D and E near Navy Archives

“Dear PoP,

What’s the deal with those buildings on the West side of 8th St. between D and E St.? The facades are still there (kinda), but it looks like they were filled in and now make up the back of another building?

Any idea if it was a zoning issue that they couldn’t change the facade, so they just made it an abomination? Or is something eventually going to happen there?”

There is actually some serious functionality going on behind the facade. The facade was a just a beautification project. Looks like it’s some sort of Pepco substation – anyone know for sure?
