DMV Development... Trump's Old Post Office Pavilion

The Donald

Pennsylvania Avenue's Old Post Office Pavilion is on track to undergo major reconstruction. Donald Trump's team will soon begin their development of the $200 million Trump International Hotel, Washington, D.C. Because of strict height limits on buildings in DC, the Old Post Office Pavilion, which many of us remember as DC's Times Square on New Year's Eve, is recognized as the third tallest building in our nation's capital. 271 guestrooms, luxury ground-level retailers and world-class restaurants are some of the amenities scheduled to be delivered in 2016.

Capitol Hill's Historic Car Barn has recognized the Car Barn as one of the country's most exclusive gated communities in the country. The complex was originally built between the 1400 and 1500 blocks of East Capitol Street, NE in 1896. The initial structure was a service facility for the Metropolitan Railroad Company, which maintained the city's streetcar system. According to the National Park Service, streetcars stopped operating in DC by 1962, and Car Barn subsequently went on to become a service and storage facility for DC's bus system.

Today The Car Barn is a condo community with 196 units. Its features include gated off-street parking, a community pool and close proximity to Lincoln Park. For a look at the On Our Blocks featured one- bedroom rental listing of the week, which just so happens to be in the Car Barn, CLICK HERE.
