Dear PoP – What’s Going on with old Alliance of Concerned Men Building?

“Dear PoP,

I was hoping you could do an update of the building at 11th and Harvard that once housed the Alliance of Concerned Men. As you probably remember, there was a fire in the building in January. Since then the windows have remained boarded up and it doesn’t appear there has been any work done to restore the damage from the fire. At various time the place has become a magnet for tagging and graffiti which the city thankfully removes. I thought it was interesting that the Alliance of Concerned Men sign that used to stand at the corner was taken down or removed not too long ago.

Does the group plan to return to building? Do they plan on making any repairs? Right now it’s bordering on a Horse’s Ass award since it’s stood boarded up for so long without any indication of repairs.

Any new info would be greatly appreciated by the residents of the neighborhood!”

According to Council Member Jim Graham: “it will be rehabbed as a seniors only building.” I’m trying to get confirmation from DC Housing Authority. Signs have recently gone up announcing trash removal (thanks to another reader for sending):

I’ll be sure to show new photos when/if it’s completed in August.
