“Dear PoPville,

Just passing along an update I received from Rooney Properties today regarding the development on the corner of Georgia & New Hampshire in Petworth (The Memphis). This project has been stalled for 3+ years now, however I noticed construction fencing going up this week so asked for an update.

The project is moving forward however as a rental and not condos for sale. We are getting the existing building taken down now and hoping for DCRA permits to follow shortly so we can begin new construction. The contractor’s schedule has demo running thru Sept.”
