Also, that photo in the WBJ article explains what the helicopters are doing flying so low over our apartment. Good to know I am not paranoid!

JD-- regarding the link that you Tweeted about, more housing is always welcome but I can't imagine living right next to the railroad tracks and I-395. I thought these buildings would be office and/or hotels.

Looks like Circa is still coming, but Open Road is no more. From reading this, it sounds like they're gonna launch another concept in that space instead: link

The CSX land behind ORE 82 is under contract to Greystar (national apartment developer). 1M SF of development capacity, according to the listing - 1,000+ units.

Greystar is under contract to buy the huge CSX parcel that runs west from New Jersey Ave. behind the 70 and 100 I Street bldgs, just south of the freeway. Bisnow piece with graphic of location: link

Should be more residential.

In case you see it elsewhere like it's new, the news of Bluestone Lane coming to 99 M was first reported in April: link An official press release went out today, though.

So after Barre3, that seems to leave just 1 bay in that building empty. Based on the trend, it's either going to be delicious food or exercise-based business.

The Whole Foods sign is at least up! There's a little action inside the store but not much.

(oops, image URL included with this comment didn't work!)

I must have missed it - does anyone know what's going in at F1rst between Solidcore and Declaration? They're definitely framing out that stall.

@202, you asked in the last thread about a new date for the Happy Hour, and I haven't come up with one yet. Gunning for June, though.

June 24 is the start date for the revised SE/SW Circulator: Eastern Market - Navy Yard JDLand Cap Riv - Waterfront Station - Wharf - L'Enfant Plaza.

I plan to observe the occasion with a pub crawl!

So it is referring to the Caps? They’re colluding with Tampa?

There is a sign at the top of the F1rst building, “8 + 92 = CROBOP” (In Cyrillic). I have a good guess what this is referring to but can anyone confirm? This reminds me of the good ol’ sign wars last year at the Camden South building.

Speaking of Half Street improvements, within the last few weeks additional light poles were being installed on the sidewalk that fronts the Metro entrance. NO actual repair to that disaster of a temporary sidewalk, though.

There was a big debate a while ago on this site about whether exterior work for the Half Street project would begin before the All Star game. The windows have been installed on the first floor.

JD-yes, there are signs in the window and I received a paper in the mail. Closing in August I think (branch AND ATM!), I'll take a pic next time I walk by and post if someone else doesn't first.

Also JD-you've still got that scoop bug apparently, I just got home from a run to HT and walking past Wiseguy noticed the door propped open and sounds of a skilsaw in there but you beat me to it! :)

Probably old news, but I biked up the newly reopened 5th St a couple of days ago. It's not great, but cars can get through again. I'm hoping 4th comes back soon!

Charles Allen's Office (@CMCharlesAllen) tweeted "2019 budget includes funding for... a connector between Canal Park and Garfield Park..."

What is the connector between Canal Park and Garfield Park? Resurrecting the underpass skate park and graffiti gallery, once CSX is done with construction?

A Post article on affordable housing in the District says that the Parcel L project in the Yards is going to be called The Estate, and that 53 of its 264 apartments will be for tenants earning 50 or less of AMI: link Parcel L project page: link

OMG, JD‘s got a bad side? Why wasn‘t I warned? Just the thought of it makes me want to re-read the new guidelines and find a way to behave.

I will also have to start thinking about whether to build a notification system for when tidbits get elevated, for the crazies who really want to know everything immediately.

Lots of possibilities. This is the creativity I get when I'm not feeling like a failure.

Another M Street move happening, but a lot less exciting: WBJ says that Unity Health Care is leaving Maritime Plaza at 12th and M SE and taking 27,000 square feet at 1100 New Jersey (the CVS building at New Jersey and M). link

@202: Re: trust, I guess We Shall See!

I was considering offering a coveted JDLand t-shirt to the commenter who has gotten the most tidbits elevated at the end of the year, but I then realized it would begin an arms race.

Have I earned the JD Land level of trust?

Tonight's Nats - Yankees game is also cancelled. Rain, rain, go away! In all seriousness, I ran by the waterfront this morning. Due South Dockside and Osteria's outdoor venue are going to have to worry about flooding if this rain persists until Friday/Saturday.

And when I say "keep it short and sweet," I mean, don't suddenly decide you need to write like a reporter. The way y'all have been doing it up to now is just fine. Don't go changing to try and please me.

I'm a little concerned about the forecast for Thursday and the chosen happy hour venue. I assume the Brig has taken down its winter fortress? Do we need to relocate?

Or maybe call a rain date, because I really do want it at the Brig. And I'm not sure people are going to be too hep to go over there through bleech weather.
