Curbed DC has produced its own version of DCPL's Most Endangered Places list. Curbed is calling * its * list "Preservation Watch."
Every week, or so it seems, another DC building gets added to the list of places threatened by a potential bulldozer or ambitious developer who wants to cram in as many apartments as possible. The list of old buildings with people fighting to defend them reaches into the dozens but there are always some that rise to the top of the list. Here is our Preservation Heat Map of the ones that are the most contentious right this second. Got any others that everyone is fighting over? Send 'em into the tipline or leave a suggestion in the comments.
Here is the entry for McMillan:
McMillan Reservoir Filtration Site
NORTH CAPITOL ST NW, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, DC
The former water treatment site is a huge expanse of green space with the District that no one can agree on what to do with. Should it be play fields, a rec center, a museum site?
