It strikes me as strange that a building like this (older, close to the curb, etc.) would have no other similar buildings around it. My understanding is that you could find similar situations in Minneapolis back in the 1970's, when people rose up and put a stop to urban renewal. Today the surviving old gems are surrounded by modern skyscrapers.
There are no skyscrapers in DC because of height restrictions. But if you take a Google street view look at 13th Street and N Street NW, Washington DC, you can see that the contemporary development is only a block away to the south. Right north of here is Logan Circle, which is a historic district with some magnificent Victorian mansions, restored over the last few decades, so further development in that direction is unlikely.
Iowa Condominiums in Washington DC so far from the state of Iowa. I was wondering Is on Iowa street? Other wise Why Is it called The Iowa Condominiums since it Isn't in Iowa.
Until 1930, Logan Circle was called Iowa Circle.
So John A. Logan proved to be more important than the state of Iowa. Having driven though Iowa on several occasions, I'm inclined to agree. ;)
