Big Railroad Purchase
Up to about a year ago tbe Virginia Mid?
land Railrosd was without property in thi9
city necessary for the transaction of Sts
rapidly growing business. Along in 1SS9
the road boaght the irregular piece of ground
bounded by E, Twelfth, Water and Thir?
teenth streets southwest, from Johnson
Brothers. On this they erected their Bbops
and a freight depot.
Since then tbe road has been quietly buy?
ing up other real estate in tbe same eeotlon.
Tne land 1b required for yard purpot-ea, sid?
ing* and eo on. Believing that if tbe bold- j
ere of tbe land knew that it wrb wanted by
the road, they would eend the price in
search after Gilderoy'e- famous hunt, Mr.
Robert Portner, the Alexandria brewer, bse
been tbe chief huntsman. That is, the pur?
chases have been made in bis name.
Mr. Portner owns the irregnlnr pieoe of
ground oontiguons to the Long Bridg6 ard
fronting on Maryland avenue und Twelfth
street. Oa this piece of ground the Midland
has a round-house. It is a Fqutre round
bouse. Oi?ride it on tb? Bame lot a a turn
table. Mr. Poriner bag considered tbe pol?
icy of erecting a brewery in this city, and.
as he hag retained the ownership or this
piece of ground, It is thought he will evec
(Uftlly ba'.ld a brewery upon It. Bi this as
it may be has recently completed ihn pcr
ohsse, for tbe Mid and, for the hregu'.ar
block of ground bounded by Maryland ave
no?, Twelfth, E erd Tr.ineemb et reefs. A
part of this block, facing on Maryland ave?
nue and TwelLh street is covered with
dwelling hoo<es, there being a grocery ut
the corner. The occupants have been not!
tied to vacate tbe bou^e. The rocd will
then tear the buildings down and convert
tbe ground into a railrosd yard.
The road also want) the block jast east
af tbe oue deecrlbfd, i. e., tbe one bounded
bv Maryland avenue, E evet th, E and
Twelfth streetp. This is built np a)] alorg
Maryland avenue and a patt of the Twelfth
rtr? et front, there being on tbe latter front
a publio Bchool hoo?e. Tbe part of the block
facing E street has not been cut down to
grade, and upon the bill are beveral houees,
none of them of much value, except tbat of |
Mr. White, tbe president of the Belt Line.
Thi9'occupies the corner at E and Eleventh
s:r*etH, and has lately been considerably im?
proved. If tbe Midland gets this block it
will pay a pretty stiff price for it.
On the triangle formed by tbe crossing of |
Maryland avenue, Ninth, D and Tenth
streets siar<d the freight offices of tbe B-.lti
more and Potomao Railroad. Opposite, In
tbe fquare bonnded by C, Egbtb, Ninlh
and D streets, is Church's lumber yard,
which occupies a little more than half tbe
block. It extends along the whole square
on the C street front and down E ghth and
Ninth to an alley. The remaining part of!
the square Is occupied by dwelling houseB |
facing on D street.
Mr. Portner has just bought Church's
lumber-yard, as It is described above. This
purchase is for the road. Of course it will
want the rest of the eqaare.
It iB possible that ail tbe property along
Maryland avenue, at least on the south Bide,
from Sixth street to the river, will in time
ba owned by tbe railroads and need for their
business. Tbe Midland is getting its share
now, and its method of acquiring it is a
shrewd one.? Wash, Critic.
