Cool Old House near Meridian Hill Park Getting Demolished


“Dear PoPville,

It is a sad day for us residents of the 1400 block of Belmont Street next to Meridian Hill Park. I remember you spotlighting this rowhouse before so I thought I would share. I spoke with the contractor today. It is being torn down to make way for condos that will fill in the empty lot next door and where the rowhouse will have once stood. It boggles my mind that the city requires preserving facades like the one at Louis 14 yet this rowhouse can be torn down simply because it is not in a historic district. The views over the city in the new condos will be outstanding though. Any word on who the developer is and what the plans are?”
