What will actually happen to the former Capital One Building at 856 Washington
Despite several unfounded rumors (i.e. Trader Joe's), I can now confirm that this site has been purchased by a developer and financing is presently being sought for a multi-unit residential building.
The pro-forma sales estimates are $1300 a sq ft.
Unknown at this time if facade will be saved.
