The Week in Real Estate

• Things seem to  be looking up for Logan Circle’s Metropole condominium: 25 units have sold in the past six months. The building, which opened more than a year ago, still has 30 condos on the market. [WBJ]

• The Historic Preservation Office has raised concerns about the plans to redevelop the Takoma Theatre as an apartment building. [DCMud]

• Catholic University’s Brookland campus buildings will soon feature 1,000 solar panels, installed and operated by Washington Gas Services. The eco-friendly system will still only generate a very small percentage of the total electric power used by the university. [Housing Complex]

• The Boxer Girl Mural controversy will not go away. Bloomingdale neighbors met earlier this week to discuss the mural, though apparently nothing was accomplished—just more bickering. [Bloomingdale (For Now)]

• The city has started planning for Walter Reed’s move to Maryland. But a proposal must be approved by the Army before the city can acquire the 62-acre property. [WBJ]

• A two-bedroom condo just around the corner from Cardozo High School in Columbia Heights is one of the best open houses in the area this weekend. [UrbanTurf]
