The Week in Real Estate

Every Friday, we roundup the week’s real-estate news and gossip.

• The City Paper’s Angela Valdez takes a look at how six of the city’s most prominent slumlords live. Hint: You won’t find cracked tiles in their bathrooms or mice running up the curtains. [Washington City Paper]

• The Historic Preservation Review Board just designated the Washington Hilton Hotel as a historic landmark despite resistance from some members of the board and area residents. [DCmud]

• Bisnow gives readers the lowdown on green roofs, and takes a look at the installation process. [Bisnow Real Estate]
