    I read in the Post a few years ago about how the developers offered the owner millions for that tiny piece of property. Under advisement of his lawyer, he held out for even more money. The developer finally gave up and built around him. Now there isn’t really much you can do with the land. You can’t help but laugh a little bit at the situation.

    I think it is a shame that building owners are allowed to let their buildings deteriorate — demolition through neglect. I checked with DCRA and DDoT and the building’s building permit has expired and they shouldn’t have the fence in front either. And how were they allowed to destroy the sidewalk in front of the building? I wonder if our Mt. Vernon CID is on top of this and doing anything about it?

    The building should be condemned and demolished before it becomes a drug/prostitution den, if it hasn’t already.

    Here are two old 2006 WaPo articles on the owner’s decision not to sell:

    A Solitary Stand on the Precipice

    Media-Shy District Property Owner Comes Out Talking

    From the sounds of it the property owner walked away from over $2 million.

    Ledo’s does not deliver.

    The Ledo Pizza on Columbia Pike in Arlington delivers. Maybe some don’t but it isn’t a universal rule.

    I’m surprised that Ledo Corporate would still maintain that there is going to be a restaurant open in that location this spring. I wonder what is up with that?
