Floor Collapse in a Bloomingdale Row House Under Construction

19239331466_d92f4446ab_z

A Bloomingdale reader sends in Sunday morning:

“Thought it might be of interest: multiple fire and rescue vehicles responded this AM due to floor collapse at 67 V NW. Thank goodness no one was in there or hurt.

It is a rowhouse that is under permit for pop up and pop back: issued a day or two before the new DCRA/zoning regs. According to responding fire dept personnel, no immediate danger / damage to adjoining rowhouses though they taped off surrounding area and front of house.

I suspect but do not know whether the heavy rain was just too much for whatever precautions the developer may have made. The permit to pop up and back this rowhouse is under appeal: I wonder how this incident will affect that?”

Another reader reports:

“With only a permit for interior demo, they spent a rainy Saturday removing the back exterior wall.”
