The City Paper does a little digging into what exactly is going on a Murry's. It's a question I've been getting a lot recently. I knew they had dug some test wells in July, and that the building (which extends all the way to H Street Self Storage) had sold for $3.4 million roughly a year ago, but that was it. No one I asked seemed to know exactly what was happening. We still don't have all the answers, but here's some more info from the City Paper:
-The parcel is under contract and should go to settlement in November.
-The current owner is one Jerry Schaeffer, who the City Paper calls a "taxicab magnate."
-Schaeffer apparently also owns the future Walmart site on Bladensburg Road.
