This building, which sits on the corner of H St & 10th St NW, has got to be the most well maintained vacant property in the PQ. On our walk home from work, there always seems to be evidence of maintenance activities. For example, scaffolding appears every once in a while (pictured above) to repair the facade.
Someone with some deep pockets must be maintaining the unused property, possibly waiting for the commercial real estate market to bounce back? We are still baffled because a quick search of the DC real property database yields no results! The only clue we have is the HSU logo on top of the covered walkway, which leads to the HSU Development website. Upon further inspection, HSU seems to be engaged in many government contracts. So, we can only presume that the vacant building is owned by the Feds. We wonder when the building will be put to use? The internet search continues..
