unappealing Bloomingdale commercial space for sale
You may have seen this commercial property at 81 Seaton Place NW, whose side abuts the rear of 1821 1st Street NW.
According to neighborhood legend, this building used to serve as a transfer station of sorts for the Washington Star newspaper. I do not know when it stopped being used for newspaper distribution.
During the past decade, the second story was added. Rather ugly.
The property is presently an active listing. You can see Suzanne Des Marais' listing from Saturday, 1/16/2010, here: http://mrislistings.mris.com/Matrix/Public/Portal.aspx?k=252400X2J6R&p=DE-99315428-2
The list price is $239,000.
Ove the weekend, I met the current listing agent. In the photo on the right, you can see the listing agent checking on the property from the alley side. He was meeting a man who is shopping around for salon space.
