Surprise! Your House is Becoming Four Condos…

“Dear PoPville,

Coming home from work last night, I saw this huge sign in my neighbor’s yard and nearly had a heart attack.

These two-story row houses on our street are all over 100 years old and lovingly cared for by our neighbors. We know the owners of 913 Quincy St, NW and they’ve lived here for about 10 years– none of us knew that they were going to cash out and sell their house to developers. In fact, the house was never even on the market.

The first thing I did was email my neighbors, who were equally shocked. Then I emailed the owners and asked what was going on. Their response was priceless:

No, we’re not moving and the big sign announcing 4 sparkling new condos is just as big of a surprise for us. Looks like this developer did not proofread the work order for the sign they had made. I think it’s meant for a site on 913 Quincy Street NE.

I’ve left two voicemails on the number listed for someone to rectify this and so far no response.

It turns out that our worst nightmare was… only a nightmare”
