  March 26, 2016 - After a winter of hibernation, work began again on the Brig in March 2016, with temporary signage, pavers, and a new iron fence.
  March 26, 2016 - And a fence sign appeared, locking in an opening date.
  March 19, 2016 - The view into the site from 8th Street.

The northwest corner of 8th and L, in March 2011. This is 720 L St SE, where a developer has been endeavoring since late 2010 to build a beer garden. The bar would have a tavern-class liquor license (supported by ANC 6B, albeit with some reservations). The Historic Preservation Review process stalled for more than three years, but things got underway in late 2014. (3/04/11)
An old view of the 8th Street frontage, in 2011. The only structures on the lot before construction were some corrugated tin sheds that were not deemed historically significant. (3/3/11)
This is not the actual design. This is what was originally being planned back in 2011. The actual design will be much more of a true "beer garden," with mainly outdoor space and a small service building for restrooms, a bar, and perhaps small food prep. A parking pad for food trucks will be available.
