The Capitol Hill Corner brings us news of the historic Buchanan School of Capitol Hill will soon be converted into townhouses.
“Insight Property Group has the Buchanan School at 13th and D Streets, SE, under contract and hopes to preserve and enhance the historic structures which date to 1895 and raze the newer additions to make way for a series of new townhouses fronting D and 13th Streets, SE. The historic building on the 92,899 square foot site – which lies just outside the Capitol Hill Historic District – would be converted to residential units.”
