  • Oh no. This is terrible. Does anyone know the exact address of the building that was on fire? Are pedestrians who have business on that block (in other buildings) allowed through?

    • 3151 Mt P St. it’s the white building across from 7/11 and beau Thai. No businesses are located on the ground floor – just apartments. Damage seemed to be middle apartment on 2nd floor. charred inside and smoke damage above windows.

  • I’m pretty sure I inquired about an apartment there recently. Sad. http://www.wcsmith.com/3151-Mt-Pleasant-Apartments-Washington-DC

    • Yeah, I looked into that building as well a couple of years ago, but I was put off by some negative reviews about bed bug issues. (Bed bugs can be anywhere, of course, but I was wary of moving into a building that seemed to have an active or very recent infestation.) Hopefully the displaced residents can return ASAP, and thankful that at least no one was seriously injured.

  • From a friend of mine who lived in the building (now displaced, but apparently only for a few days), the fire was caused by a ‘hoarder’, hence the big pile outside the building I imagine.

  • Speaking of the Deauville/Cesar Romero Apartments, has anyone heard a status update lately? Not a thing has been done on that sight in many years.

    • Yeah, good question. POP, any chance you’re interested in doing an update on those Romero apartments? There was a groundbreaking ceremony last summer, and then crickets…
