Dear PoP – Former bemuralled 9th & Q Horses Ass Award finally getting some love!

“Dear PoP,

On my walk to work this morning, I saw new fencing going up around the formerly bemuraled horses ass nominee at 9th & Q & Rhode Island streets in Shaw.

DCRA shows a new permit pulled for interior demolition in preparation for renovations. The long vacant property was sold in November, and a permit was pulled in March for door and window replacement, but this is the first major activity I’ve seen. As a neighbor, I’ve been waiting a long long time to see this!

With O Street Market apparently (and seemingly perpetually) on the cusp of breaking ground, Addison Square reportedly announcing something in the next two months, the home that you featured on the SW corner of 9th & Q being rehabilitated and a half dozen other homes within a block of here under serious renovations, there is a lot of activity in the neighborhood.”

Great news! These are gonna (hopefully) be some great before and after photos. Stay tuned.
