Washington, DC

2329 Champlain Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

Just a bit mind-numbing considering all the development on that block during the past 20 years. And that property giving off a boarded-up vibe for much of that time.

Must be nice to have the equity to hold out for that ultra pay day. Or to be able to take advantage of lax regulations and overly permissive tax write-offs.

Believe it or not, those PN Hoffman developments used to be parking lots with chain link fences.

Somehow, those two, albeit huge, developments managed to be the only new, from ground up, construction for almost 15 years. That’s probably wrong, but it’s not far off.

Whoever owns that plot missed the crazy ’00-’06 tripling that was happening across the north of Florida Ave neighborhoods.

The backstory is what I’m interested in.
