Dear PoPville – Encouraging Developers to Buy a House?

Photo via google street view

“Dear PoPville,

There is an empty (boarded-up) row house at 1452 Euclid St NW. I am a neighbor, and I think it would greatly improve the neighborhood if a developer could acquire this from the city and renovate it. Do you have any tips on how I might help bring this project to the attention of developers who might be interested?”

It’s not clear if the city actually owns it or not. It is listed on the unclaimed property list here and here under two different names. My guess would be that a developer looked into the property and determined it was not worth headache. What do you guys think?
