The photo above is from the corner of 11th and Monroe Streets, NW (across from the park and CH Coffee). This building has quite a sordid history. Bottom line is that it has been vacant for years. A reader says they have heard the building has been sold. I checked in with some connected folks in the neighborhood and they have heard the same thing. Unfortunately the original tip I received only contained a first name so I haven’t been able to confirm this rumor as fact. If it does turn out to be true this will be a tremendous development for the neighborhood.
