Buy Me: 1304 9th Street, NW

The last vacant building in the 1300 block of Ninth Street, 1304 Ninth, is now for sale according to this Long and Foster listing. The asking price is $699,000, and the listing describes the property as follows:
C2A zoned commercial row house located just a feet away from the Convention Center and new Douglas Development across the street. This property offers a gorgeous Victorian facade with great bones. Property needs complete rehab. Proper restoration of exterior may qualify for historical preservation tax credits.
This long-vacant property has so much potential and is in a prime location. Here's to hoping it's purchased and renovated and that a new business occupies it soon.

if it's C2A, does it have to be used commercially? could someone make it their home which is usually an R zoning? I assume so...just a thought!

According to the Office of Zoning Webpage, C2A zoning "Permits matter-of-right low density development, including office, retail, and all kinds of residential uses to a maximum lot occupancy of 60% for residential use, a maximum FAR of 2.5 for residential use and 1.5 FAR for other permitted uses, and a maximum height of fifty (50) feet."

So it seems this property could be used for ground floor retail with a residence above. I could totally see it.
