Dear PoP – Cool Old Building for Sale?

“Dear PoP,

I was wondering if you’d ever noticed the Washington News Company
building at 1121 Fifth Street, NW. I thought I saw a for sale/lease
sign for residential/commercial use on the building this morning, but
I can’t find anything about it online. It looks like it would be a
super cool loft-type place. I’d love to know if you can find out

The MRIS listing says:

“Fully sprinklered 21,237 sf 3 story building with 13 foot ceilings. 4,000+ sf office on 1st floor with 7,000+ unfinished loft apartments on 2nd floors. Lower level has 7,000 sf with ramp for parking or additional apartments. 1/2 block from New York Ave and New Safeway on 5th Street NW. 2 blocks to Metro 4 blocks to Chinatown, Verizon Center.”

It’s yours for $4,950,000.
