$900,000 Dupont Garage Drops in Price

0,000 Dupont Garage Drops in Price

So you missed your chance at snagging this Dupont garage when it hit the market for $900,000 in late April? No worries: The place just dropped its price. By $1,000. That’s .1 percent!

To recap, this 1,008-square-foot brick garage, built in 1921 and located in an alley behind the O Street Mansion, is completely unfinished and has “no real street address,” according to the listing. But you can bring an architect to “see the potential!” and turn it into a “project of your own!” The listing also now helpfully includes a rendering of what it could look like reimagined as a home. Pay no mind to the 2014 tax assessment of $68,780.

Apparently, though, the almost-$900,000 price isn’t exactly out of the ballpark. Two developers have already expressed interest in the property, which is zoned for moderate-density residential development, according to listing agent Jennifer Smira. “It could be a business, it could be a coffee shop, it could be a yoga studio,” she says. “But it will take some vision.”
