“Decrepitude at Hiatt Place NW”

“Dear PoPville,

Does anyone know what the waka is going on with 3228 Hiatt Pl NW? When it was last featured on PoPville back in 2011, it was nominated for the Horse’s Ass, which may have spurred on the property’s owners to achieve even greater levels of decrepitude. Rather than just letting it rot, they’ve been actively tearing off architectural details, and making and then “patching” mystifying holes in the brick facade and window openings. It’s sad to see what’s been done to this once-handsome building, and I can’t find any recent info online about the property.

I’m not normally a historic preservationist hand-wringer type, but walking by this building almost daily puts it on my mind a lot. My curiosity finally got the better of me, so I thought I’d ask around.

Thanks for any insights!”
