Housing Complex

Creepy, Vacant—and Sadly Interchangeable—Highrises Located East of the River…

Last week, DCmud reported on The Overlook apartments, formerly known as Parkside Terrace. Back before the demolition, Parkside was an empty shell of a building. With its exterior ripped off, one could peer up at the vacant rooms, looking into the building like it was some humongous, slummy dollhouse. (Sorry I don't have a picture.)

I thought I recognized the old building, located in Washington Highlands, but it turns out I had a completely different property in mind.

A co-worker had previously alerted me to a another empty highrise east of the river with the same eery, bombed-out look. This one is up in Ward 7, located by the intersection of Southern Ave. and East Capitol Street.
