“If you didn’t know it, you’d think this new house is part of the original row of homes”

“Dear PoPville,

There is a really great bit of infill happening next to the former Frazier’s funeral home at Rhode Island Ave and Florida Ave, NW. There was an empty lot on 4th st between old funeral home and two old row houses.

The developer has done a solid and filled in the lot with a new construction row home that is built to look like it is part of the original row on 4th st. It’s been great to watch this one go up. The masonry work and proportions have been done without any short cuts. If you didn’t know it, you’d think this new house is part of the original row of homes on 4th st. It’s looking like it will be a two unit building. Should be interesting to see how much it all goes for.

Checkout google street view from 4th st or S st to see this without the new construction.

There used to be a row house on this lot and it’s address was 1801 4th Street, NW. Here’s a link to a letter from DCRA to the developer regarding their plans to rebuild on the lot.”
