OPERATIVE BUILDERS DO MUCH TOWARD CIVIC IMPROVEMENT Many Rows of New Houses the Result of Private Enterprise?Typical Illustration in Webster Street Development. Much has b"en written at various times about the work of different operative builders In Washington, and little more ??? is necessary than a cursory observation of the newer portions of the city to con vey proof absolute that practically all of ihe rapid forward strides in the develop ment of the residence sections of the Na . tional Capital are the result of the enter prise of the small coterie of men who have none Into home building on a large scale. And that horm-seekers have been " developed in numbers fully equal to the ? ie? -w housi s built, or have been recruited from the rrtnks of families more recently enlisted ;t# citizen:; of the capital, a'so Is obvious, since the new houses seem to lind buyers in many cases even before the final touches of construction work have been completed. Opeiatiw building, or speculative build ln*. it is now conducted in house construction and sale, may be termed an outward manifestation of the trenrl of . the times, but in respect of this class of development in the National Capital, it can b?- shown that Washington lias pro ? duced almost all of her builders from home talent. Many local contractors have entered the operative building field, sometimes In a small way, only to prow with the growth of the city, until their anflual output of finished dwellings runs Into the scores, occasionally into the hun dreds. Populated Area Spreading. With each passing year the thickly populated area of the city is spreading ?utward toward the boundaries of the District until it would seem that another decade at least should see a not inconsld- table proportion of the business and departmental folk of the capital actually housed in dwellings constructed by operative builders in the "National Capital extended"?or. more literally, entirely outside the Dis trict of Columbia in the neighboring reaches of Maryland. It was not so very Ions ago that Florida avenue, in fact :ts well as in name, was the "city boundary." and yet at trie present tim?- even the name "city boundary,' as applied to that thoroughfare, is in the list of things forgotten. After Florida avenue as the city boundary passed into oblivion Park road for a time marked a temporary stopping place of the directly north ward march of civic improvements in the northwest section of the city, but within more recent times the area be tween Park road and Piney Bnanch road has been the scene of some of the frreatest building development of tin city. Within this area block after block has been taken in hand by opera tive builders, and a veritable city within a city lias been the result, as rows upon rows of houses have been constructed, placed on the market and sold. C. E. Wire' anActive Figure. At the present time a building opera tion is beinvr conducted in this same section which when finished will place Webster street on the city map as a welf populated thoroughfare. This particular enterprise is the work cf Charles E. Wire, one of the younger members of the coterie of operative I > k builders of Washington. Mr. Wire came to the capital ten years ago froip Loudoun county, Va., and for the first six years his efforts in the business community were devoted to selling houses which other builders produced. Then he branched out into the building field, and his first couple of years of work took form in the construction of a row of six houses at 9th and Webster streets, Petworth: a Tow of twenty-one houses on 13th street between Monroe and Otis streets, a row on Monroe street between 18th and l!)th streets, six houses at 11th and Newton streets and four houses at ISth and Lamont streets. In the building season of 1011, when his present task on Webster street I between 14th and 15th streets is fin ! ished, Mr. Wire will have built forty four new residences. Of these a row of eleven new structures is on New ton street, at the intersection of that thoroughfare with 17th street: six are on 14th street between Varnum and Webster streets, and one is on Colum bia road between 13th and 14th streets. All of the remainder are on Webster street west of 14th street, eleven of this series I?ein? now almost linlshed on the north side of Webster street, while construction work is being pushed ahead rapidly on the remaining series of fifteen on the south side of Webster street.
