In walking down Kenyon Street yesterday, I noticed that the vacant and blighted building on the north side of Kenyon Street a few doors down from Morgan’s Seafood was finally razed. According to what I was able to find in the DCRA database, this property has been owned by the District of Columbia since October 8, 2004. A raze permit for the property was first issued on July 6, 2012. The permit was renewed on July 11, 2013.

It is uncertain at this time if the District has any immediate plans for the property, but even if they don’t, the property was quickly becoming a safety issue. The last time I saw the building prior to demolition I noted that it appeared to be structurally unsound.

Vacant lots have become scarce throughout the area. Having another one close to Georgia Avenue definitely piques my interest.

The vacant and blighted building at 709 Kenyon was recently reduced to a pile of rubble.
