Raze Application Permit Posted at Brass Knob Warehouse

Dear PoPville,

Remember the former Brass Knob warehouse on N street NW in Truxton Circle? It still has signs advertising the space for lease, but I noticed in the window an application for a raze permit (attached). I found more details on the Office of Planning’s website, on the 3rd page here. That application was dated January 8, 2013. What’s interesting is that in OP’s Historic Preservation office, there’s an application for the same property, for a Historic Landmark Designation, dated January 11, 2013. Apparently the warehouse is Chapman Stables, built in 1890. I’m wondering what’s going to happen now. The owner must think the property is more valuable as an empty lot…

We last spoke about the former Brass Knob Warehouse back in April when I heard it sold for $4 million.
