Breaking: Properties at Ninth, Q and Rhode Island Have Sold

The once-muraled, long bemoaned, prominently situated properties at Ninth, Q and Rhode Island Avenue changed hands this week.  The new ownership has a track record of bringing historic structures back to life (based on brief Google research, I found that at least one of the owners was involved in the restoration of the Dunbar Theater on Seventh Street).  The rumored preliminary plan for the properties is to transform the Q Street properties into one or tow residential town homes and to put retail on the ground floor of the Rhode Island Avenue frontages with residential above.

WOOOOOO HOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is amazing news Shaw Rez! How did you find out it sold? The property isn't listed on MLS is it? Who is the buyer?

That's awesome!!! I didn't think that guy would ever sell. Along with the sale and rehab of the three vacant properties at 8th and Q, the 4 new condo units on the other side of 9th & Q, that block will have done a 180 in 1 or 2 years.

DC finally posted the sale. Providence LLC purchased the following three lots that make up that corner:

816 Rhode Island - $750k
818 Rhode Island - $750k
819 & 821 Q St - $750k

I couldn't find info about Providence LLC anywhere. What else have they done in the city?
