910 S St, NW

Back in Oct. 2011 we learned that this the abandoned lot/playground at 910 S St, NW was being auctioned off. Looks like Capital City Real Estate picked up another nice location. Back in June we saw that they picked up the former liquor store at 3rd and H St, NE.

Here’s what the lot looked like for years:

  • See, this is just what Courtland Milloy warned us would happen!!!11!111!

    Theyre knocking down a playground, FOR KIDS! and they’ll probably put in a hybrid bike repair/craft beer house with a matching playground, FOR DOGS!

    Wait! Are you telling me parents didn’t love the idea of letting their kids play in a playground that looked liked a prison yard? Who knew?!?

    I know the posts here are snark, but I think it’s important that any discussion of the (long, long, long overdue) redevelopment of this spot include the fact that a totally awesome kid’s playground exists a block away.
