1245 5th Street NW

“this shady corner store at the corner of 5th and N NW got shut down over a year ago for selling illegal drugs etc and it would be great to get this turned over to somebody that would actually put something nice in.

I’m assuming the high price is due to a commercial zone that would get grandfathered in. In any case it’s been a blight on the neighborhood and would be great to get something nice in there….like a sandwich place or coffee shop type thing.”

The MRIS listing says:

“Needs to be seen, diamond in the rough. strong potential. Can be converted into condos or use the first floor as store front”

It’s currently listed at $1,299,999.

To celebrate Air Quality Awareness Week (May 6-10, 2024), Clean Air Partners is working with A Few Cool Hardware Stores to exchange DC, Maryland and Virginia residents’ gas-powered lawnmowers, trimmers, and leaf blowers at select Ace Hardware locations in the region. DMV residents who turn in their gas-powered lawn tools will receive a FREE Ego Power+ replacement including batteries and chargers, while supplies last.

Compared to gas, electric lawn equipment can reduce emissions, noise pollution, health risks and maintenance costs and time. The program aims to remove about a hundred gas-powered polluting tools from yards in the greater Baltimore-Washington region.

The exchanges will take place the weekends of May 17-19, 2024, and May 31-June 2, 2024, at A Few Cool Hardware Stores network of employee-owned Ace Hardware stores in the DC and Baltimore metro areas. To participate and get your free Ego Power+ lawn tool, sign up at https://qrco.de/CAPExchange to reserve your tool and select your trade-in date and location.
