“Nightmare on Buchanan Street”

“Dear PoPville,

Or as my neighborhood is dubbing it “Nightmare on Buchanan St”.

On the 1400 block of Buchanan St NW they completely razed a beautiful Wardman rowhome without the proper permissions, causing structural failure to the adjoining homes. DCRA is asking the neighbors, whose houses were damaged, to pay for new firewalls and re-enforcement. This blatant disregard to the neighborhood (and the permitting process) is frightening. If you see what’s been done, it’s absolutely awful. I’ve never seen anything like it in any neighborhood in DC. The one of the house you can see white because there is absolutely nothing but daylight behind the brick. There is nothing in place to even keep the façade standing. It’s a miracle the façade hasn’t crumbled.”
