Last February I reported about a planned redevelopment of 1547 7th Street, NW (the building at the corner of 7th and Q Streets) about which I became aware. The cool looking, Bonstra Haresign-designed mixed use rehab and addition to the existing structure was to be known as Warrenton Plaza. Since that time, I have seen no signs of progress at the site, and the Warrenton Group's webpage for the development has been taken down.
Upon perusing Long and Foster's listings today, I found that 1547 7th Street is officially on the market. The current asking price is $1.5 million. I'm hopeful a new owner will scoop it up and make a reality of the awesome plans for its overhaul. Situated between several noteworthy projects planned for the area--the redevelopment of Kelsey Gardens across the street, the O Street Market a block away, and Broadcast Center One et al. just a few blocks north--it would be a shame for this property to see its potential unmet.
