From reader Mark Lawrence come these farewell views of the almost-a-full-block compound one block north of Washington Ave at 1101 Reinerman St. that belonged to J and L Sheet Metal from the late eighties until recently. The company sold its land, bounded by Reinerman, Moy, Nett, and Center streets, to MHI McGuyer Homebuilders in late August. A sign taped to the front door (at right) notes the metal fabrication business is moving out of the Westwood Grove neighborhood, further north to 14102 Chrisman Rd., near the intersection of the Hardy Toll Rd. and Beltway 8.
Equipment was hauled out of the buildings over the weekend. The block is surrounded on 3 sides by townhomes, and includes these residential properties on Nett St.:
The property at 5209 Nett St., at the northwest corner of the block, does not appear to be included in the sale.
