Update: Lafayette Square Rehab Progressing (1620-24 Dolman)

The row house building at 1620-24 Dolman in the Lafayette Square Historic District (Peabody Darst Webbe neighborhood) is actively under rehab. The three units are under rehabilitation for $80,000 each by Zumwalt Corporation. The last time we checked into the site, permits had not yet been issued (check out a pre-rehab photo on that blog post).

Now, work is underway. See the recent photograph below.

Long ago, the building’s southernmost member of the row (1624 Dolman) was slated for demolition due to advanced deterioration. The matter went before the Preservation Board, where the request for demolition was denied. Instead, the row of three town houses will remain intact and (most likely) occupied for the first time in quite a while.
