Dear PoP – What’s Up With the Perseus Project?

“Dear PoP,

What’s the status of Perseus Realty’s YMCA project at 14th and W Streets, NW? Has construction started?”

On their Web site it says they have broken ground on Sept. 26, 2008. But from the photo above, taken on Saturday, it is hard to tell if much progress has been made.

Last we heard about this spot, there was a fire here back in January. I’ll email this post to the developers and see if they can give us an update. Do any readers happen to know if the construction is moving along?
