Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

I’m considering submitting an offer on a loft located inside the old William Syphax School building in Southwest DC. While I like the unit, I have some concerns about the lack of maintenance on the exterior of the building. It’s a beautiful building but it doesn’t seem that it’s being maintained well.

In particular the cornice above the main entrance seems to be deteriorating and one of the exterior entrance lights doesn’t work, etc. From what I understand there are no current concrete plans to address the issues with the exterior. I’d love to get insight from someone who lives in the building, Syphax Village, etc. Thank you.”
