Yesterday the DC Historic Preservation Review Board
approved the Historic Landmark nomination of the Navy Yard Car Barn (aka the "Blue Castle" at 7th and M
). This means that the building has now been added to the DC Inventory of Historic Sites
, and is also now protected under DC's Historic Preservation Law
. What does this mean for the company that just paid $20 million
for the property with plans to use it for retail? We shall see.
