“Any news on what’s happening?”

17th and R Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

“Any idea what’s going to happen to the abandoned building on the corner of 17th and R NW? Right across from Dupont Italian Kitchen, I’ve been seeing construction workers there and scaffolding, but can’t tell if any progress is being made & what towards.
