628 New York Ave NW holdout sells

Townhouse at 628 New York Ave NW

Through the grapevine I’ve heard that the owner of the townhouse at 628 New York Avenue NW has sold. While a few 6th Street properties on Square 451 where not part of Douglas Development’s assemblage – this was the only holdout from either New York Ave or K Street. Douglas had continually said they would build around the property. But it now seems that an agreement has been reached and we can avoid a repeat of the 433 Mass “Ledo” situation.

Had 628 New York Ave NW not sold, the footprint of the new American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) headquarters building development would have had a notch similar to that seen in the image below.

628 New York Ave NW is a townhouse located in the notch of the outline

Raze permits for most buildings on the block have been posted and demolition could begin in September.

    I called the Permit Office to ask if the Clean Hands Law is being applied to the processing of these permits. They referred me to a Mr. Henry . I called and left a voice message requesting a call back.
    Would really like to see the DC laws enforced and looking at the websites if the tax info is accurate why weren’t the properties on the delinquent property sales list in July

    A good question but having different companies for different properties probably deals with that…

    I had a nice chat with the owner the other day, he’s in good spirits and looking for another place, hopefully staying in the neighborhood.

    If your comment of different companies is in response to my comment I don’t know what you mean, My point is quite simply no permit should be granted until the taxes are paid. incidentally each of these properties is listed as owned by the same LLC with the same agent applying for the raze permit.
