Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

It's become a tradition for me to do a yearly overview of what's happened in Near Southeast over the preceding 12 months, and what the next 12 months are looking like, and in my typically understated way, I've dubbed it "the State of the Hood." This year's missive is now posted, and while the expectation would be that 2009 was a whole lot of nothing, there were more milestones of note than perhaps it seemed--two residential buildings and one office building were finished, the first residents moved into Capitol Quarter, water taxis and Circulators arrived, Cornercopia opened, and work began on the new 11th Street Bridges. There were less auspicious events, too, with construction being halted on two projects, foreclosures hitting various commercial properties and private homes, and the drying up of the "development pipeline." But there's still a few new things coming in 2010, like the Park at the Yards and Justin's Cafe.
Whether you're new to the neighborhood, or an old hand, I hope you'll take a few minutes to plow through the whole thing. (And maybe even read the old ones, too, to relive the insane years of 2006, 2007, and 2008.)
As part of putting the SOTH together, I got the updated residential occupancy numbers from the BID--they say that nearly 2,800 people now live in the "Capitol Riverfront." Here's the breakdown of leasing/sales percentages for the multi-unit buildings:
Rentals
Onyx 95.5% leased, 94% occupied (250 of 266 units occupied)
Axiom 91% leased, 89% occupied (219 of 246)
Jefferson 77% leased, 76% occupied (340 of 448)
909 New Jersey 82% leased, 75% occupied (178 of 237)
400 M 100% leased and occupied (138 of 138)
Condos and Co-ops
Capitol Hill Tower (Co-op) 83% sold and occupied (285 of 344)
Velocity 32% sold, 8% occupied (16 of 200)
Capitol Quarter

82% sold, 28% occupied (32 of 113)
(ownership units, 56 still under construction)
(Note that Capitol Quarter's numbers are a little behind the others, so these are higher now as the move-ins continue)

JD -

As always, thanks for all of your hard work!!

As a CQ resident I have to assume that the 28% occupancy rate is based upon the total development (phases I and II) - from walking the neighborhood nearly every completed phase I home is already occupied.

Sorry...I'm emphatic, but not THAT emphatic! Computer fail.

Lets hope 2010 is the turning point for the Hood and the 2010 version will be filled with nothing but new construction recaps!

The state of the hood is excellent. Christopher Leinberger touts it and he should know.

Greg - welcome to Capitol Quarter! You are going to love living here.

Just moved into my CQ townhouse two weeks ago and I am loving it. Although coming from a one story condo in Chintown into a multi-story townehouse (with lots of steps) made me realize I had muscles in areas that I apparently had forgotten. Ouch! But those sore calves quickly get used to climbing the steps.

For those who are on the fence about the Near Southeast... GET OFF THE FENCE while you can afford to get in on a great area of the city. Once the economy gets going again, you won't be able to touch this great part of the city!!!

Thanks for all your dedication (read... obsession) with the JD-Land website JD. It is "THE" source for what is happening in the hood.
