Our last report on the saga of the “Ledo Building” at 433 Mass was that the city notified to the owners that the building would be demolished if it remained unsecured. It turns out this has closed the chapter on the Spriggs family as the bank has sold the property out from underneath them.
In other news on old buildings in the Triangle, the old High G Paint building located at 924 Fifth Street NW has been sold. This 3 level structure lies within the Mount Vernon Triangle Historic District.
The new owner of this property is interested in placing retail on the ground floor and has approached the MVT CID for suggestions. What type of tenant for this
1300 1650 SF space, that is just steps away from 5th and K, would both flourish and complement the existing uses in the neighborhood? Suggestions I heard at the MVT Marketing Committee meeting included a chocolate bar like ACKC, or a housewares store like Home Rule. What are your thoughts? Keep in mind the size constraints of the space.
