A newly constructed condo development at 1744 D Street NE is going to be torn down because D.C. Water says the building may damage an aging water tunnel underneath it. The developer, Edge Investments, is fighting against the demolition with a filed suit in the D.C. Superior Court, arguing that D.C. Water never opposed the permits until the construction of the building neared completion. If this whole issue arose due to the District issuing permits in error, it will come down to the local taxpayers or D.C. Water customers to pay off this whole hullaballoo. [NBC4]
