Shaw No Longer Considered "Slum Historique"

Remember the building on 9th and Rhode Island Ave with the tongue-in-cheek welcome sign that simultaneously honored the city's French past and current working class status? Well, the sign has been painted over and the building has been bought. It looks like a mix of retail and residential space is going to be developed in the existing abandoned building. Hopefully this will start a trend with all the other dilapidated buildings in the area. Until then will Shaw be a slum moderne?
