Wonder Bread Factory's Uncertain Furture
With the development boom finally starting to reach Shaw, it is a shame that the Wonder Bread Factory faces such a bleak history. Douglas Developement who owns the property, has put virtually no money into mantaining the structure, yet want top dollar for it.
The Wonder Bread Factory is located at near the corner of 7th and S Streets, NW, and directly adjacent to the new Progression Place currently under construction (new home of the United Negro College Fund).
DCRA has deemed the property structually unsafe as of March 14th and requires significant work before it can be used again.
