Saving Houses in Mt. Vernon Square

Dear PoPville,

I’ve always been fascinated with the science and precision behind moving houses. Sending you a few pics of the triangle between New York Ave and K Street, NW. This small building is off its foundation and ready to go.

The old Victorian house (photo below) is stabilized for the move, but hasn’t gone anywhere yet. It’s my understanding that all of these historic structures will be aligned next to one another somewhere on the block to make room for the new Medical School Association building. Is this correct?

For those not familiar with the project, WBJ reported:

“The Association of American Medical Colleges has selected Douglas Development Corp.’s site overlooking Mount Vernon Square for its new headquarters. It plans to occupy the property by the fourth quarter of 2013.”

No doubt this is gonna be another amazing transformation. Glad to see they are saving these great old houses too. We’ll revisit as construction progresses.
