Dear PoPville – What’s Going on with the Former ‘Goins’ Building?

Georgia and Shepherd St, NW

“Dear PoPville,

Do you know what’s going on with the construction site at Shepherd and Georgia? The building on that corner was demolished earlier this summer, and all of the debris was removed. After that the construction equipment went away and now there’s just a big hole with no signs of new construction. Are there plans for a new building? Any idea when they will start building?”

The folks behind the project, PERS Development, tell me they are “looking to break ground in the next 30-45 days. We are excited and look forward to this great project. It’s going to be a cool building!” This will become the the Fahrenheit Condos.
