Last week we had two postings debating preservation of three Victorian rowhouses at the MRP realty 6th & K Street NW site. To my knowledge those rowhouses are not inside the historic district nor are they designated historic structures.
Yet, during the Mount Vernon Triangle WalkingTownDC tour, I learned that the roof of a small building diagonally across the street from the 6th & K Automart is protected. I forget the entirety of the backstory – but the roof at one point was a carport of past structures including a gas station.
While this terracotta roof represent a more rare feature than other old buildings inside our neighborhood possess I’m not particularly impressed. It wouldn’t be anywhere near the top of my personal list to save. What are your thoughts?
