The Lamont Street Collective’s new home on the 400 block of Park Road.

If you’ve been following local news in the past several weeks, you may be aware that the Lamont Street Collective — an affordable housing cooperative & creative community space located in Mt. Pleasant since 1975 — was evicted from the rowhouse in which they were located following a change in ownership last year (You can read more about the collective at the Washington Post or at the Washington City Paper).

As it turns out, Mt. Pleasant’s loss has become Park View’s gain, with the collective’s new home located on the 400 block of Park Road. Collective members are  still in the process of moving into their new digs. Having had the opportunity to sit down and chat with a few of the members, their decision to move to Park View could enhance many of the community efforts currently underway — ranging from treeing up the community to Georgia Avenue Thrive’s efforts to increase safety and establish stronger support for the Georgia Avenue business community, including community events.

    Isn’t this the house that was rented by Howard students who would have massive parties? If so, what a double plus for Park View if indeed they have become the renters of a previously horrible neighborhood house.
