Raze applications have been filed for the buildings on the west side of the 1000 block of New Jersey (the cab garage and the charter school). The second phase of Paradigm's Meridian on First is on the boards for there.

The substance of the article doesn't add clarity to whether Half St SE will or won't be permanently closed to vehicle traffic. But the main rendering picture has a couple structures halfway down that look possibly permanent and look like they'd obstruct traffic? I know, I'm just looking for any indication that supports the conclusion I want, but one can hope!

@Jaal @jscott280 Hey neighbor! Last I was told, the 2nd floor "should" close around June 20th-ish. Didn't seem like a definite....

Heard the Navy Yard Bang is not on the main website any longer? Or is that because it’s affiliated with Vida, which can’t open yet?

RIP Juice Laundry. They had some delicious smoothies but never seemed to click in that location.

Meanwhile across the street Yellow Cafe is ready to go.

Also, since there is no more SWTLQTC, it looks like more residential development is coming to Buzzard Point.

@CL85 I witnessed a motor vehicle theft in front of Bonchon on K St a few nights ago. Poor delivery guy left the car running and I only caught the last seconds of the theft. Luckily, I was able to tell police which way he went. WaPo had reporting this week on an increase of cars of delivery drivers being stolen.

@walt: Good to know I’m not alone in my New FDMB geekdom. I, too, want to watch the final piece of the final arch get installed.

You’ve probably noticed that completion of the fourth (of the six) arches is taking forever. Its final piece has been sitting in wait for a month. I finally got close enough to a construction worker today to ask why. He said the alignment of the currently unfinished arch is not within tolerance and that some work on one or more of the pieces is necessary to ensure an acceptable fit of the final piece.

[I’m taking 2039 in the Guess the Year of the WaPo Front Page Emergency FDMB Safety Shutdown Headline Over/Under.]

Makes me assume that the current New FDMB team will eventually be EXTREMELY cautious about planning for and announcing the date on which we can expect to celebrate [choose one:] Archmas/Fredsgiving.

Anyone else notice what appears to be a spree of motor vehicle thefts in the neighborhood, according to the crime blotter? Five in less than two weeks definitely seems like a new and concerning trend.

Wow. It looks great! Meanwhile, the construction around Half St. and K is such a disaster. I am glad to be home during all of it.

@Jscott280 - you'll need to upload them somewhere else then create a new post here and use the option below to paste a URL into the post. JDland itself does not allow uploading of photos.

@walt - that is news to the JDland comments. Sad to hear that, if it's permanent. The website and twitter make it sound like it's a temporary closure, but removing signage seems a bit drastic vs merely covering the windows. So we'll see. As for the business, I visited once and always meant to go back because the juice was very good. But, it was a bit out of the way from my regular lunch time walking route and so that never happened.

I wonder if it's possible to get advance notice when the Douglass bridge puts in the last section of arch. It would be nice to get a socially distant, neighborhood cheer on from Yards Park.

My fingers are crossed for the neighborhood, which I have not seen since mid-March but will this week. In Old Town today, there was a growing number of vacated storefronts from places that have already closed for good.

I have not heard anything about Half Street going full pedestrian all the time. It was always planned that it would be streetscaped like a ped-only street, since it is closed much of the time, but that during non-stadium events it would remain open. But maybe that's changed.

Also, the various oversight boards have always shot down lights strung across the street. Again, maybe that's changed, but....

@sasq excellent, I hope it's true, surprised it hasn't been announced, even if it's only proposed and awaiting final DDOT approvals or something. Just the fact that it's being officially proposed would be exciting news. Now I'll move on to speculating what the large black poles with eyelets are for: banners or lights strung across the pedestrian mall or something more creative than I can come-up with?

@velocitychris I saw one of the foreman and asked. He confirmed that it would be a pedestrian street.

I remember someone posting what I think was just speculation that half street between N and M was going to be closed permanently to vehicle and be a pedestrian mall. I don't remember that being officially announced, but with 1) that brick they're laying down, 2) the fact there is no curb (street is flush with the "sidewalk") and 3) the large black poles for hanging banners or stringing lights separate from the street lights, it's really seeming like maybe it's true?! Do I dare dream it's true?

During my quarantine run today, I saw that a tower crane is being installed at the 1000 South Capitol development.

Now that is very exciting, of course, but continuing on to the other side of South Capitol, into SWTLQTC-territory, I saw two workers surveying the Randall School site. One of them mentioned that construction is going to begin on that.

Folks--- I hope you're all sitting down for this because this is enough to stir you out of your coronavirus blues... the neighborhood's second CVS looks like it will be opening soon at One Hill South. There are already signs installed.
