    Wow – that was fast! Good job too.

    The building was so decrepit for so long and now it looks great! Glad to see that the renovation works out. I really hope that this helps the homeless in DC and that they can adequately address their needs.

    Very nice, I appreciate that they retained the historic character.

    It still looks like it could use a good pressure washing, but otherwise, great job!

    It seems like a bit of a waste for a historic building in a good location to be used for a homeless shelter. There must be somewhere else where this could have been located that wouldn’t be so incompatible with the neighbourhood.

      Yeah, is there any way we can put these homeless people where the rest of don’t have to run the risk of seeing or interacting with them? What a waste of a perfectly good decrepit old building that could continue its years-long streak of blighting the neighborhood.

        If you would like to have a facility that entails hordes of homeless in your hood and the attendant crime and other issues, so be it, but I would think there would be a better use for this property. Sure, the homeless need somewhere to go, but it really shouldn’t be right in the midst of a vibrant area. Most people won’t admit to it, but they really do not like interacting with the homeless. I just happen to be brutally honest.

          Sure, it’s uncomfortable to interact with homeless people. But I like the idea of relegating them only to crappy parts of the city even less. Place facilities throughout the city. Let’s start with one in Georgetown & the Palisades… hah.
