I was recently successful in pestering David Cortiella, grand poobah of the Capper/Hope VI realm at the DC Housing Authority, into giving me an update on the various projects in Near Southeast that he's currently working on. Here's the latest, while always keeping in mind that dates, especially in These Uncertain Economic Times, are not written in stone:
* At Capitol Quarter, the public infrastructure work on Phase 2 has already started, as people can see by the earth that started being moved in late September on the block bounded by 3rd, 4th, I, and K. The financing for this block's construction is expected to close at the end of this week, which would allow for the completion of the first houses by the middle of next year. The entire Capitol Quarter development is expected to be finished by the middle of 2013.
* On Square 882 (the block bounded by 5th, 7th, L, and M), the Housing Authority continues to work toward the construction of an 189-unit mixed-income apartment building on the north side of the block (along L Street, seen below). Their application for an FHA mortgage loan guarantee was submitted earlier this month, and DCHA is expecting that financing for the project will be in place by the end of the year, with construction starting in late winter or early spring of 2011.
As part of 882's new construction, the existing parking lot (known to Nats fans as economy Lot W) will be downsized somewhat, but not eliminated altogether. DCHA is estimating that there will be 190 parking spaces in the new lot, and that the lot will continue to be available during the construction of the new apartment building. There will probably be some disruptions when the building construction gets underway, but DCHA expects them to be minor. There's no timeline for when the 600,000-square-foot office building that's also part of the Capper Hope VI plans would get built along the M Street portion of the block, so people who use the lot on a daily basis are probably safe to bet on having it for a while.
* Residents may not be aware that DCHA is also involved in the disposition of the current DPW operations at New Jersey and K, since that block is part of the Capper redevelopment and is slated to eventually have a 322-unit mixed-income apartment building on it. A new site for DPW's trucks has been identified (I don't know where), and once DPW drives off the lot for the last time, the environmental assessments and abatement of the site can get underway. And, as much as it pains me to imagine the neighborhood without that smokestack, it's anticipated that the building and the smokestack will be demolished by the end of 2012.
* Some of the money that DCHA recently obtained on the bond markets to pay for the second phase of Capitol Quarter is earmarked to go toward the infrastructure work around Canal Park, and DCHA is working with the Canal Park Development Association get this funded. [I'll note that not much seems to have happened along 2nd Street since the park's ceremonial groundbreaking, which would seem to jibe with the delicate "working with" phrasing here.]

Any mention of the Capper apartments between 3rd and 2nd PL? Thanks


JD says: (10/12/10 3:37 PM)
If there had been, I'd have mentioned it. :-) :-) But no, no update on those at this point. Definitely no money in the pipeline for them right now.


Glenn says: (10/13/10 10:47 AM)
I remember musing back on 8/31/10 about the Canal Park groundbreaking being a mere photo op with no sign of any real advance in the actual construction. Here we are nearly a month and a half later, and we only have a tiring round of ceremonies and a finalized primary election. A hearty boo-hiss to each and every "dignitary" present at such a farse.


Adam says: (10/13/10 2:28 PM)
Speaking of 'boo, hiss'...there's been no movement that I can tell at either the LRB site or Harrys...


Sophiamonster says: (10/13/10 3:15 PM)
I saw them pouring the foundation at the LRB site and then doing more foundation prep on Monday.


MJM says: (10/13/10 3:32 PM)
There is pre-work on Canal Park (notice the construction material in the middle section) as stated (so that means construction is underway) and Sophiamonster is right-on about the LRB site, there is a new foundation (about 4 feet off the sidewalk - a smaller building) and there are workers in the pit on most days.

JD: Any idea if the DC gov't has any control over the triangular piece of land at 4th, VA Ave and I Street, SE. According to the National Park Service website, the Feds own it. However, DC's website says that they (DC) sometimes have an agreement with the FEDS which gives them control of some FED owned property. Was thinking that would be a great place for a large professionally designed, enclosed commuity dog park like the one at 17th Street, NW and New Hamshire Ave, NW in Dupont area. I realize that the CSX tunnel project will very likely affect about 10% of that parcel. Any info would be great. In the mean time, I'll keep snooping around. Thanks!


Glenn says: (10/13/10 5:23 PM)
Pre-work and a pile of rubble equals not construction.


JD says: (10/13/10 8:17 PM)
@Joe, I don't know anything about that triangle--you should probably contact Tommy Wells's office to see what they know, and if they could help.


MJM says: (10/13/10 10:58 PM)
What is your definition of construction? Just keep us posted on when it actually starts so I can avoid the street (2nd) that is under construction :)


Mark says: (10/14/10 8:40 AM)
As a CQ resident (even though I am not a dog owner) I love the idea of turning the triangle into a dog park!
