Things Fall Apart

Sean Emerson of Around Four Corners provided some insight into the seemingly abandoned storefronts adjacent to New Hampshire Avenue in the shopping center surrounding our soon to open transit center.  It turns out that they were gutted by fire in July 2013.

More than three years later, the charred and decaying roof facade has finally been torn down, but the properties remain blocked off behind a chain link fence.

These types of conditions tend to contradict statements about how the Crossroads area is an economic powerhouse with high rents and occupancy rates.
