The demolition on the 900 block of 3rd Street NW is complete.
The properties demolished were 908-914 3rd Street NW. The land is part of the Mount Vernon Place master planned development. The 300 K Street NW office building is supposedly the next piece of Mount Vernon Place to be built.
I have inquired what this demolition might signify. Word is that the buildings were demolished predominantly for safety reasons. The vacant buildings were attracting prostitution activities in and around them. The flickr photostream I compiled does not include a pre-demolition snapshot of the buildings as everytime I happened to walk over with my camera someone was sleeping or hanging out in front of the properties.
