Fri May 2nd, 2014 1891 Ad for Wesley Heights Real Estate Fri Apr 25th, 2014 JustMy2Cents If the description off of the DC property database is to be believed, the building was built in 1895. Odd that a ten year old building required extensive renovation, perhaps Mr Catto is exaggerating a bit, perhaps there was a fire…. Any ideas what was done with the ballroom and other large common rooms – building is now a condo. Fabrisse I wish my apartment building had a Billiard Room and Cozy Buffet.
