DC Public Libraries have come a long way in the past decade. Circulation has tripled since 2006 and 14 branches have been rebuilt or renovated. 

Two of the new libraries, William O. Lockridge/Bellevue and Francis A. Gregory Neighborhood Libraries, won Royal Institute of British Architects International (RIBA) awards this year for architectural excellence. But not all DC Public Libraries libraries are brand new structures; some are housed in beautiful historic buildings including the Petworth and Mount Pleasant Libraries, which were recently renovated. After the fire in 2007, the historic Georgetown Library was completely renovated, which also allowed for the addition of more space. Construction is currently underway at the historic Northeast…

A Columbia Heights property auction will take place next week on Wednesday, February 27 at 1 PM. That’s just one hour after the auction in the Trinidad neighborhood. So if you don’t win the first one, you can head to the next one!

The Columbia Heights property auction is for a three-level 1,116-square-foot townhouse at 758 Fairmont Street, NW between Sherman and Georgia Avenues.  You may recall that that the Sherman Avenue Streetscape project recently upgraded the neighborhood -- adding a median with trees, sidewalks, and more.  The location is also walking distance to the Metro and Howard University.  In addition, the property is just blocks from the shops and restaurants on 11th Street, which the New York Times calls the new “hip strip” in…

A real estate auction in Trinidad will take place next week on Wednesday, February 27 at noon. If you’ve been priced out of the market, want to design your own new home, or are a real estate investor, this might be the opportunity for you.
