3rd Place at I, Looking West (see more)

I have to admit that information fairs aren't quite my gig (especially since I'm immersed in this stuff everyday), but I did wander past today's Anacostia Waterfront Community Information Fair at the ballpark to see what there was to see. I got there pretty early and left pretty early, so didn't see any of the panel discussions (and didn't take any of the bus tours), but if you want to see how they configured the exhibitions within the Stars and Stripes clubs at the ballpark, here's a batch of photos. (And, if you were there, maybe you're in one or two of them!)
I also took a few new photos on First, Third, and New Jersey of 909 New Jersey, Velocity, Onyx, and the Foundry Lofts, which will serve mainly as a reminder of why I don't normally go on photo expeditions on cloudy days. If the weather finally shifts, I expect to be out taking some additional ones on Sunday, especially of 1015 Half, since the first columns are visible above ground-level.
Plus, I felt a burst of inspiration yesterday the likes of which I haven't seen in months, and *finally* created project pages for William C. Smith's 800 New Jersey Avenue development and for the 11th Street Bridges reconstruction. The 800 NJ page has almost no information (since there's so little to be had about the project beyond the basic 1.1-mil-office-residential-retail-and-maybe-Whole-Foods profile); the 11th Street Bridges page is a little better, but still is just a lot of pictures of overpasses and flyovers. Better than nothing in both cases, though!

It's a shame that the project will eliminate the last piece of Canal Street - following the path of the old L'Enfant canal - in SE. Coordination of this project, the Canal Park, and the Yards development to more clearly recognize the path of the canal could have produced a more interesting urban space that would recognize the canal as a major part of near SE.

Historical maps don't seem to show that the section of I Street to be "restored" ever existed in any formal sense. Using the term "restored" seems to be a convenient way of diverting attention from the closing of Canal Street.

Rather than far more interesting urban spaces, building design and heights, and public infrastructure (such as a continuation of Canal Park up the existing Canal Street connecting the park with NJ Avenue), looks like this project will be just another of the massive, tall buildings with little character that are being built everywhere else in the area.

One more opportunity lost.
