Movement Coming to Boarded Up Buildings on N Street in Dupont?

N Street between 17th and 18th St, NW

Every year someone writes in asking about the boarded up buildings on N Street between 17th and 18th St, NW. It is such a prime location that it seemingly makes no sense that they’ve been boarded up for so long. Sadly legal disputes has halted any movement. But maybe some positive movement is coming? Washington Business Journal reports DC sold the liens on these properties:

“1745, 1749 and 1755 N St. NW: Owned by N Street Follies Ltd. and its principal Morton Bender, these three Dupont Circle rowhouses sold for a total of $320,679.64, including $170,000 of surplus. Bender has owned the properties since 1988, but his attempts to redevelop (as an office building, then as a hotel) have run into one problem after another.”

Think this will spur development?
