Lerner Shops, Facadotomized, But Still There, Washington, DC

This building sat empty, coated in layer upon layer of crusty yellow paint. I often overheard people say it should be torn down as they walked by, and seeing it fully restored on the front is heartening. Now, to be honest, they chopped off the back of the building and combined all the other buildings on the block into a giant office building, but it's better than nothing. The street wall is preserved.
