In the near future, D.C. can add auto garage to the list of unique places that have been converted into residential spots. The listing for this 4,132 square foot space clearly presents this as either a development or fixer-upper opportunity since the first two sentences are "Create Your Own Urban Space. IMAGINATION REQUIRED." Imagination certainly factors into the building's exterior which has become home to some of the more ambitious graffiti outside of the Brookland Metro stop. The Chuck Brown mural has already been highlighted on this map and there are also some impressive portraits of the late Adam Yauch (MCA) from The Beastie Boys. For the equally ambitious interior designer, ask for the alleyway building with four parking spaces is $849,900.
