...because it's in my head and I gotta get it out...
I live around the corner and I'm sad this week because I just found out they are building a hostel/boarding house at 605 P ST NW next door. The plans show 9 rooms, each with its own bathroom inside, and very tight common areas, presumably for folks who don't want to see their "roommates" let alone their neighbors. How this qualifies as a residential single family dwelling per the permit lists, I don't know. But I wonder how we can grow our neighborhood and keep it safe while inviting transient boarders into what used to be a crack house way back when. It fell into disrepair/fires/robberies when no one took ownership of it and I'm just hoping we don't walk down that path again. If y'all have any suggestions of who to talk to or what to do, let me know.
I was told it was going to be a B&B. Will contact the owner to see if s/he is willing to come to a CCCA meeting to share plans. Businesses need to be good neighbors.
That would be great to hear the plans at a CCCA meeting! I called the real estate company's number a couple of days ago to let them know a window was open at the top of the house and they thanked me and confirmed the house was under contract and going to settlement today...couldn't tell me who the buyers were until after settlement...
