- That falling-down house at 1841 16th Street NW. Remember the protest over the possible demolition of the historic house at 16th and T NW? The house is safe, according to the Washington Examiner, “The D.C. government has agreed to pay to stabilize a historic, million-dollar Dupont Circle row house that the private owners let deteriorate until it partially collapsed a year ago. The Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs will spend $225,000 to ensure the house at 1841 16th St. NW doesn’t fall to the ground, agency Director Linda Argo said Tuesday. The five- to six-week project, the result of negotiations with the property owner, is expected to begin immediately… The agency will place a lien on the home, assessed by the city at $1 million, for the cost plus interest if the couple do not pay.” Read story.
