2nd (East) at L, Looking Northwest (see more)

Rounding up some new and Tweeted tidbits, now that I've recovered from cranking out the State of the Hood:
* (h/t "reader X") The second foreclosure sale held yesterday for the boarded-up apartment building and surrounding lots at Potomac, Ninth and L brought no bids above the $2 million starting point, so the properties will now return to the lender. An earlier auction back in October had brought a $2.461 million winning bid, but that deal fell through. The properties were originally bought by ICP Partners in 2006, along with the gray building at Eighth and Potomac, for $9 million.
* Via ANC 6B03 commissioner Norm Metzger, the Marines have created a web site for their "Community Integrated Master Plan." The site describes this planning process as evaluating "community-military development partnering options" because "[t]here are unmet facility needs and security requirements at Marine Barracks Washington and a potential to meet common community and military needs through the process" and that their goal is "to use a coordinated planning process to create a win-win in meeting the development needs of the local community and Marine Corps." Now that that's cleared up, you can go to the open house they're having on Jan. 27 from 5 to 8 pm in the North Hall of Eastern Market, to "assist the planning team in identifying issues, concerns, and potential opportunities for military-community development partnering."
* One of many service reductions proposed by WMATA to help close their FY2010 budget gap is to shut down one of the two entrances to the Navy Yard metro station on weekends. (They don't say which one.) The public hearing on their various proposals is Jan. 27 at 5:30 pm. UPDATE: From Michael Perkins, in the comments, it would be the west entrance, at Half and M. I wonder if this would only be when there are no stadium events?
* Via the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce's Twitter feed, there will apparently be one more Lower 8th Street visioning session, on February 22. After this final session, the group will forward its recommendations to the Office of Planning on what sort of development should be emphasized for these blocks south of the freeway.
* In Sunday's Post, Dr. Gridlock took a look at the 11th Street Bridges project, telling drivers what to expect as the construction unfolds, and that the "new bridges will forge a link between Maryland, the District and Virginia that has been missing since the original highway plan for the District was abandoned decades ago. And it will create a new link between neighborhoods on both sides of the Anacostia while relieving them of some of the commuter traffic that spills onto local streets."
* As part of the start of work on the bridges, a raze permit application has been filed to demolish the old red brick buildings between the current bridges that housed the Anacostia Community Boathouse, whose operations are now moving up-river to a temporary (maybe permanent) home at the Anacostia Marina.
* A little time spent trolling through public records shows that within the past month a bunch of the liens brought against Opus East when they liquidated and stopped work on 1015 Half Street have been settled. No indications from the new owner (Douglas Wilson Companies) as to when construction might restart, despite their statements back in October that it would be happening soon.

Docket says the proposed entrance to be closed is the west one.

Ray-N-Rockville says: (1/21/10 11:47 PM)
Closing the west entrance on weekends is absolutely foolish if they think it will save money. So all the people entering the stadium for events are now gonna be walkng up First Street after they leave Metro to walk to the stadium? The police are gonna have a pretty good size force in use to handle the crowds crossing M Street twice. This makes no sense from a logistical stand point and is going to cost the City thousands of dollars to implement on weekends there is any event at the stadium.


ScottKC says: (1/22/10 3:50 PM)
One would hope they would make an exception for Saturday events at the stadium. Kinds like how the Navy Yard/Capitol Hill Circulator runs on game day weekends, but otherwise not.


MJM says: (1/22/10 4:24 PM)
I seriously doubt they would keep the entrance closed during games - metro doesn't make sense a lot of times but they aren't that dumb.


Michael says: (1/25/10 10:06 AM)
it's only for non-event days... same as last year


Dan says: (1/25/10 3:40 PM)
Hey JD,

The blog documenting the boathouse's move upriver has changed names to reflect a broader scope. It's now called "Along the Anacostia - East of 11th Street." link There's more detail on the change in the blog's headline post.

Thanks for the shout-out! We're excited to see some exciting development along the river between the new bridges, the Anacostia National Park renovations, and (of course) the new boathouse.
