Thanks to the weekly update of the public version of the DC Property Sales database (which runs about five weeks behind), I can confirm what has been rumored for a little while now: on May 21, Monument Realty
paid $14.26 million for the old Sunoco site at 50 M Street
, on the northeast corner of Half and M
. There's been no announcement as yet as to their plans for the 15,500-sq-ft site located between 20 M
, 80 M, and a US government warehouse, and right across the street from the Navy Yard Metro west entrance and Monument's Half Street
extravaganza. Just think--if Monument is the successful bidder later this year for WMATA's Southeastern Bus Garage
, they'll control three of the four corners at Half and M. Monument Valley, indeed!
