New Jersey at L, Looking West-Southwest (see more)

Pulling together smallish items from hither and yon:
* Last night saw the first arrival of a commercial water taxi at Diamond Teague Pier; WTOP covered the trip, which is a good thing, since I neither rode the boat nor stood on the dock to watch it sail in. I suck.
* A stroll through the city's building permits feed (which alas isn't as easy or useful as it used to be, since they pile every single permit into the feed over and over, rather than just posting new/updated ones) uncovered that back in August, a raze permit was issued for 156 L Street, home of the old Star Market and better known as the "Little Red Building"; the owner has spoken of plans to build a new two-story structure that would be a combination liquor store and deli. I haven't heard of any timeframe for the demolition, new construction, or store opening.
* From And Now, Anacostia, a heads up that today's Kojo Nnamdi show will include a segment called "Paris on the Anacostia: A Provocative Idea for DC's Waterfront," which will discuss the idea of *narrowing* the Anacostia River, "with the goal of bringing in new businesses, training new workers, and completely changing the relationship between folks East and West of the River." It'll be available online here.
* Tomorrow night (Thursday) is the second Outdoor Space Movie at Canal Park; this time it's Star Wars. The Force will be with you, starting at 7:30 pm.
* And Thursday night is also the deadline for pre-registration for ULI Washington's Urban Marketplace conference and expo on Sept. 15. Among lots of other sessions about urban development, it includes a panel discussion about the ballpark neighborhood, with Michael Darby of Monument Realty, Matthew Klein of Akridge, Michael Stevens of the BID, Harriet Tregoning of the Office of Planning, and me. It'll be a barn-burner!
* Saturday night is the second annual Opera in the Outfield at Nationals Park; the Washington Times previews it here. It's the Barber of Seville; but don't be alarmed when the first lines aren't "Welcome to my shop/let me cut your mop, let me shave your crop/Daintily, Daintily!"
* Forest City announced its second-quarter earnings, for those who know how to decipher these things. It does mention the Park at the Yards, still listing the completion date of the first phase as summer 2010. And their outlook? "While some see signs of a potential end of the recession, we are taking a conservative course based on what we can observe and are experiencing directly: continued weak fundamentals and little improvement in overall near-term conditions. As a result, we remain very cautious going forward. We expect the second half of the year to be challenging for our Company and for the entire industry, and we do not anticipate meaningful improvement in market conditions in the near or mid-term."
* I don't think I've officially linked to Cornercopia's Twitter feed, if you haven't seen it yet. (And there's my Twitter feed, too, of course.)

Forest City might figure that condo sales will decrease when the federal tax credit ($8000?) program ends in December. That would account for their pessimism about their earnings in the second half of the fiscal year.

"Paris on the Anacostia", huh?

Name 'Anacostia' has such negative connotations (as opposed to George Washington's river - The Potomac). Change name to something innocuous like: The JD or something...

I listened to some of Kojos show today. Guest was Nir Buras (thank you google!) Ambitious plans to "narrow the Anacostia." Desire is to remove the psychological barrier between the District and "east of the river."

L'Enfant used Paris as a model when he drew out plans for Washington. The desire now is to keep going, and transform the Anacostia into a place people want to go to, with more bridges and pedestrian friendly places.

I would think that one area that is ripe for this type of thing is JDLand and Poplar Point.

FCEA and FCEB - why are they so cautious. if they can't see the end of the recession and the upturn they need new leadership. They need to be making opportunities instead of excuses.

And where this stock was heading, this is a cheap buy - sorry for the personal stock viewpoint.

So 156 L St is going to be a liquor store/deli.

That means while walking in Near SE you'll never be more than 50 yds from a sandwich.


Ray In Rockville says: (9/12/09 12:36 PM)
I don't think they are talking end of the recession in the literal monetary sense. The problem right now is securing a loan on a large project. Its tough out there trying to find financing and that usually means the cost where it is available is HIGH. Once the banks settle down then you will see some of these larger projects going forward.
