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