4th at L, Looking South (see more)

A brief morning walkabout brought the following items:
* The demolition of the old WMATA Southeastern Bus Garage at Half M continues; they had reached as far north as just across from the subway entrance at around 11:30, so the M Street facade could conceivably be gone by the end of today or early on Tuesday. You can see a couple of photos (like a bigger version of the one above) on my Akridge Half Street page, though the photos won't be as striking until the demolition reaches M Street.
* A nice fellow working at the schoolbus parking lot at Canal Park told me that the buses are being moved to their new home at DC Village on Saturday and Sunday (April 4 and 5), with drivers expected to report to work at the new lot on Monday morning, April 6. So, it does indeed sound like this is the last week of the Sea of Yellow.
* Look Mom, a Circulator bus! (This is the stop at First and K, before it turns right on I and circles back down New Jersey to the subway entrance.) You can see it lurking in a few other updated photos I took at New Jersey and M. UPDATE: There apparently was a boo-boo with the information on the DC Circulator site--the bus will be running from 6 am to 7 pm weekdays (it had said 6-6). They've also updated their service map to correct some errors.
* Here's my first shot of the repainted Third and K Market (now to be known as the Corner Copia Deli). You can compare it to its old profile here.
* The Nats are having a "soft launch" for their new food concessionaire (Levy Restaurants) via a series of invitation-only events this week. Tonight employees of the Navy Yard will be sampling the new food, and there will also be events on Tuesday and Wednesday for local businesses and invitees of the BID. On Friday the media will get its shot. I will report back later in the week, though I won't be able to provide doggie bags for everyone.

Progress - love it! Knocking the building down is the easy part and anyone can do that. Next comes the actual digging of a hole and the building of a builing.


JD says: (3/30/09 5:08 PM)
Digging the hole--yes, but not until early 2010 (if then)....

those bricks from the bus garage aren't being saved and reused, are they? please, please tell me i'm wrong!


JD says: (3/30/09 8:37 PM)
Don't know about the bricks. Maybe you should get down there with your wheelbarrow.

I've been pretty amazed at how poorly organized the DDOT/Circulator information has been. First they didn't have any information on the route until two days prior to the N22 replacement. Then they told us "no weekend service" then changed to "weekend service for Nats games". The initial map didn't specify the first and second Union Station stops. Who on earth is organizing this? They only have 5 routes and they can't manage to get the correct information to people? All looks good now, but it's pretty amazing how inconsistent they've been.

Well, yesterday evening was a waste of time - though I did get to check out my new seats. All we had access to was fairly standard ballpark fare - chili
dogs, chicken tenders with fries and the like.

Really disappointing considering this was in the e-mail Navy employees received:

"Concessions will include traditional ballpark fare and upscale menu items, featuring regional dishes and innovative versions of D.C.'s favorites
throughout the stadium."

When we entered, we got slips of paper with 3 items on it. We were to go to those stands and order those items, one at a time, I think - the instructions
were not at all clear. We could go back for more slips of paper. They were "expecting" 1000 people yesterday. I doubt there were 400.

Drove by the garage - didn't seem like much change from yesterday around 5:00. The east wall was down to up near the Metro, but the west wall was only about half way down. Should be no problem having it ready for cars by
Opening Day.

The garage is completely down. Clean up on the south end is well underway and there is some preliminary pavement being laid.
