See the announcement Email below from the DC HPO. The HPO periodically sends out such Emails that lists properties throughout the entire District with raze permit applications.
Did you know that ALL permit applications to raze buildings must pass through the DC Historic Preservation Office? Even if the building is not individually landmarked or located within a designated neighborhood Historic District.
I don't believe that there has been a building raze in Bloomingdale in the past 20 years or so.
FYI -- part of your education on DC historic preservation.

HPO is one of a group of agencies and private utilities that clear raze applications before permits are issued. The HPO clearance of a raze application indicates either that the property is not subject to the historic preservation law, or that the demolition has been approved through the process provided in the preservation law.
HPO endeavors to maintain fair, efficient, and prompt processing of these applications. We routinely clear raze applications that do not involve historic preservation issues.
We may hold a raze application until the end of the required public notice. Under the Building Code (12A DCMR § 105.7.1), the applicant is required to post and maintain notice of the raze application on the building for 30 days. Photographic documentation of the notice may be requested.
We may also hold a raze application until the end of the required notice to the affected Advisory Neighborhood Commission. Under the ANC Act of 1975, as amended (D.C. Official Code § 1-309.10(c), DCRA is required to give the ANC a notice period of 30 working days.
For inquiries, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org . Information regarding raze permits is also accessible on the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs website at http://dcra.dc.gov/service/permits-raze-permit , or by calling (202) 442-4400 for information on a specific raze application.__________
