I live next door to 2920 Ontario Rd. It is an abandoned building in Lanier Heights. As another anecdote in the blighted building saga of DC, 2920 Ontario Rd. started to collapse last night. We heard and felt several large booms during the thunderstorm that were louder than normal thunder. Our building even shook a little bit. Some neighbors went outside to inspect and we discovered 2920 Ontario had collapsed in on itself and some debris fell into the alley.
Given what just happened in Surfside, Miami-Dade County, I thought others in Lanier Heights may benefit from knowing what happened and to be cautious when you’re near this building. Fire department and DCRA were notified and taped off parts of the area. Luckily no one has been injured. Not pictured if you’re near the building you can see the top floor started to cave in the back of the building revealing trees growing from the top floor.”

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality specialty beans sourced from small farms in Latin America that are owned and operated by women. Your coffee will be roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.
As two former Peace Corps volunteers who served in Guatemala, we founded Potomac Roasting to pursue our passion for great coffee and purpose-driven work. In addition to ethically sourcing our beans, we also donate a portion of our profits to Laila’s Legacy Animal Rescue, a DC-based nonprofit that finds homes for homeless dogs and cats.
Our current roasts come from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru. We will be adding new roasts soon. If you are local, there’s a good chance we can deliver to your door. Look for us at local farmers’ markets beginning this spring. In the meantime, check us out now for better coffee and good karma in a cup. You can use the code Community and save 10%.
