@jdc-- yes, looking south from So. Capitol Street, 1221 Van appears to be huge. Perhaps it is because there is nothing in the immediate area now.

As a 1015 Half street office resident, I am especially interested in whatever comes to One Tree Hill South.

Maybe it's just me, but for how big the stadium is it seems to be dwarfed by 1221 Van. I assume it's no higher than any other buildings in the area, but from Half street Metro entrance it seems to tower over everything.

It's just outside of the JD Land boundaries but, unfortunately, there was another shooting this afternoon at the liquor store on So. Capitol St.

Update in re the bad smell at the nj & I intersection: a DC water truck has several manholes open in front of park Chelsea and is doing something or other with some kind of roto-rooter looking thing.

This update brought to you by someone who doesn't understand sewer infrastructure.

a grocer to One Hill South? I remember reading that awhile back - or perhaps I'm making that up

I have heard of one non-food tenant coming to One Hill South, though not sure I can spill the beans.

And a year ago I had heard a rumor of an Italian restaurant for Insignia, but not sure if that's happening.

Insignia also has a ton of retail space that hasn't been announced yet. Only thing confirmed there is Bethesda Bagels, and they're in what looks like a tiny retail bay. I wonder what'll snag that prime corner spot right next to the metro entrance...

Any idea what may be coming to the retail for One Hill South? They seem to have a lot of space.

Ah, yeah I forgot Steadfast Supply wasn't a permanent thing. That makes much more sense.

I have confirmed what I guessed in the post above, that it will be in the corner space at 4th and Tingey.

@snakegriffin I don't think the sidewalk on Water Street is wide enough to support outdoor seating? For comparison, Philz has about 24 seats outside if I counted correctly.

I'm guessing this is going into the old Steadfast Supply space? 32 outdoor seats seems about what would fit on Tingey. I can't imagine that many outdoor seats fitting on the Water St side.

Sweet! Thanks for sharing the news! Can't say that I've ever had Lebanese food before but I can't wait to try it out!

So is 2 Eye officially under construction since they have started pile-driving? I thought this project was still off in the distance.

Per the Cap Riverfront BID newsletter, Chloe restaurant coming to Arris. Doesn't say exactly where, but I think the only spot big enough for a 32-seat patio would be the Water Street side, no?

Hmmm, let me see, which has more impact on and interest of the populace at large: soil borings, or the impending opening of Shake Shack?

You are as always free to frequent other locales should the content here cease to meet your standards.

Not to the exclusion of lots of other reasons.

So, let's kind of settle down on the breathless borings updates.

I think soil boring updates are not all that necessary. We know the site changed hands, we know that the new owners are planning a different development, so there's going to be borings. It isn't really that important, and has no real bearings on a construction timeline....

Congressional Square update:

The soil testing machine was back on this property this morning and this time was on the other side of the lot (i.e. across from the One Hill South building).

I am surprised that the signage is going up now. Usually that is the last, or one of the last, things to happen. Sometimes it even happens once a place has had its soft opening. Though, I wonder if putting the signage up early is a nice way to get everyone excited for what comes next. It works for me!

I was returning home at 11:15 last night and came across quite a strange sight in Canal Park: A car parked next to the metal coil sculpture at the north end of the park. It had also hit a sapling and knocked it askew. There was a police car idling on the street next to it, but I didn't see any other related activity, and the car was gone this morning. Very weird, though. I don't know how someone could get there without purposefully trying to.

Also, yes it had MD plates. Just for fun I looked the plate number up in the DC ticketing system and sure enough the car has $640 of unpaid speeding tickets. Seems like a nice, responsible driver.

They paved over that little Alleyway between the empty parcel on 1st Street and the auto repair business. They put in concrete and they did a nice job so it looks like this is going to be semi-permanent and not just for construction. Also does anyone know what is up with Ann's Beauty Supply & wigs? Is the business still running? It looks like it may finally have gone out of business.

Heard through the grapevine that DCRA moved the building permit data to a new server, and there is some bureaucratic paperwork that needs to happen before it's re-linked to the open data portal.

And there is pile-driving at the McDonalds lot, so if you ever find yourself having a hang-over, good luck with that.

There is a piece of construction equipment, maybe a soil testing machine, on the Congressional Square lot.
