4th at M, Looking West-Southwest (see more)

Voice of the Hill has just posted an informative article giving a lot more detail on the Marine Corps' plans to replace the aging barracks building "20" on the north side of the freeway at Eighth and I, along with their desire to build additional facilities, including a fire station, child development center, gym, pool, parking, meeting space, post office, basketball and tennis courts, an indoor parade field, and a new Marine Barracks Washington museum. All in all, the Marines are looking for 173,000 square feet of space, some of which would be accessible (they say) to Hill residents.
Possible locations they're looking at for the new barracks appear to be north of the freeway (and outside of my boundaries!), including the Potomac Gardens public housing project at 12th and G, SE, and the Tyler Elementary baseball field at 10th and I, SE, but they are also considering the Marine Corps Institute site within the Washington Navy Yard. Also shown on their maps as a possible site is Square 882 (across from the barracks annex built in 2004), currently Nats Parking lot W on the site of the old Capper Seniors building, but the Voice article says that the DC Housing Authority has taken that block off the table--I've been hearing that DCHA is close to securing financing for the mixed-income apartment building they intend to build on the north side of that block, and would possibly begin construction by the end of this year.
The article also says that the current owners of the Blue Castle, Madison Marquette, have expressed an interest in leasing space in the old trolley barn to the Marines.
The Marines' web site for the development project has been updated with the packet from last week's open house, an FAQ, and other materials. There apparently will be a series of community meetings, which are described by the FAQ thusly: "The current plan is for the first workshop (February) to focus on needs and goals, the second workshop (March) to focus on potential development sites, the third workshop (April) to focus on CIMP alternatives, and the fourth workshop (May) to focus on CIMP consensus elements. Additionally, a charrette focused on the CIMP way forward will be held in fall 2010." (If you're interested in these, you should plan to attend rather than waiting for a JDLand report--I tend to stay away from community meetings that are pure planning sessions, because, well, they drive me insane.)
And note that this is a *different* armed forces expansion plan from the one we heard about last week, where the Navy is looking for additional office space outside of the walls of the Navy Yard. Got to keep your service branches straight these days!

My wife and I were disappointed to learn that DCHA has pulled square 882 from consideration. It seemed to make the most sense as it would permit the Marines to all be stationed together - which would enhance the security for the Marines while concurrently adding to the overall military feel of our neighborhood. Do you believe there is any chance that DCHA and the USMC could still reach an accord as concerns square 882?


JD says: (2/2/10 8:55 AM)
Remember that it's not just the apartments on the north side of Square 882--it's also Forest City's 600,000-sq-ft office building on the south side. A lot of money involved on that square.... (Not to say anything's ever truly off-the-table until a new building is built, of course.) I also wonder if that office building is a spot that the Navy would be looking at for it's own expansion needs....


Mark says: (2/2/10 9:30 AM)
JD -
A Joint Navy/ USMC "invasion" of that square would satisfy many, if not all, of their combined needs.

Yes = close the Potomac Gardens public housing project. (Crime factory)


Brent Johnson says: (2/2/10 9:58 AM)
I am confused. Exactly what block is Square 882? What are the cross streets?


JD says: (2/2/10 10:00 AM)
Block bounded by L, M, and 7th. Where the big surface parking lot is across from the Navy Yard. Used to be the old Capper Seniors building. Just south of the Marine Bachelor Enlisted Quarters building that opened in 2004.


B in DC says: (2/2/10 4:24 PM)
I"m concerned that most of these public amenities will never be open to the public or open on such a limited basis to make public access meaningless. I understand, however, the Marines' needs for additional space and their desire for co-location. Personally, I think it would be great if they would close Potomac Gardens and take over that area.


Mark says: (2/3/10 12:02 AM)
The field next to the new barracks is open to the public - you just have to show an ID to use the field.


MJM says: (2/3/10 9:53 AM)
It hit me yesterday as I was driving down L St - lots of fences outside the Marine buildings. With more Marine buildings - we are gonna see more security fences. That is not really a neighborhood when you have fences around half the hood. Might seem petty but you have Wells concerned about another Crystal City with the type of buildings going in now. We need open space not half the area with fences around it. Go build on the other side of 295/395.
