Hello? Anybody home?

construction, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

In case you haven’t realized it there is a ton of development/renovation/construction going on in Petworth. It is phenomenal and really does provide hope for the future. This is a picture of a block I found that had a whole row of houses being gutted. Must have been about 5 or 6 houses right next to each other completely gutted. I just hope they are reasonably priced so that they don’t remain empty languishing on the market. On a related note that beautiful shell on the corner of Upshur and N.H. has not seen much progress. It actually looks like they just stopped working. I still have lots of hope for the future. It is very easy to imagine how amazing these blocks are going to look once the renovations are completed.
