South Capitol at O, Looking Northwest (see more)

I imagine it'll be pretty quiet around these parts for the rest of the week. So here's a few recently Tweeted items -- and one new one -- to make it look like I haven't completely given up blogging:
* It appears that the owner(s) of multiple lots along the 700 block of L Street (the brown apartment buildings plus the corner lot where the beer garden is headed) has sold half-interest in those properties to "Calle Ocho, LLC" (8th Street, get it?). But note that the empty lot that comes through from the Miles Glass property on the north end of the block and splits these four lots (0013, 0014, 0824, and 0825) is not (as of now?) part of this block of properties.
* EYA and the DC Housing Authority were awarded last week a Jack Kemp Workforce Housing Model of Excellence Award for the first phase of Capitol Quarter. (I just wish that the ULI folks who put out the press release hadn't said that the neighborhood is "The Yards.") The Jack Kemp awards are given to "workforce housing developments that represent outstanding achievements in several areas, including innovative financing, unique construction methodologies, strong public/private partnerships, and replicability to achieve workforce housing affordability."
* Speaking of Capitol Quarter, if you scroll down my homepage to the Building Permits feed, you'll see that the first permits have been approved for Capitol Quarter Phase II houses, for lots on 3rd, I and K.
* The Capitol Riverfront BID's Holiday Market is back for another year, running from Dec. 14-18 on the sidewalk outside of 1100 New Jersey Avenue. "Shop the market for wool sweaters and mittens, homemade soaps, jewelry, antique maps, wreaths and holiday greenery, paintings, and much more!" See the flyer for more details.
* You can check out the BID's latest newsletter for more tidbits, including that work on 225 Virginia/200 I is scheduled to start next month, with occupancy expected in mid-2012. (Just in time to have a big old railroad trench dug in their backyard!) UPDATE: Yes, yes, there's already been a hole punched in the east side of the building, as people have been telling me for a more than week now. I wouldn't quite call that start of construction if nothing much has happened since....
* And, not a news item per se, but some pondering: as part of the need to close what is expected to be a nearly $500 million budget shortfall, Mayor-Almost Vince Gray announced on Monday a freeze on all capital projects that are not yet underway, while a "blue-ribbon panel of experts" reviews which are necessary. There's no specifics on the list of frozen projects reported yet, but I am wondering if Canal Park, which is getting $13.5 million of its $20 million price tag from the Office of the Deputy Mayor of Economic Development, might be on this list. We shall see....
Enjoy your holidays, everyone!

If the funding for Canal Park is on that list, I'm going to be pretty pissed! That is expected to be a HUGE addition to our area. Freezing this project would continue the significant delays on the Front... Come on, MAN!

It would be sad if Canal Park was cut but considering there are money issues already I wouldn't be shocked. But it is just not here that they considering cutting projects:

But I hope everyone is enjoying the 3-way ""all-way" stop sign at NJ Ave and K St.

I would be particularly unhappy if the funding to Canal Park is cut - while Mayor-elect Gray proceeds forward with his birth - 24 education plan. Where else in this country does the state even provide PK-3? Yet when the Mayor-elect is telling us we might have to shelve long promised projects he is willing to move forward on state-funded daycare?

I am very much enjoying the three-way all-way stop sign. I kinda freaked out heading southbound on New Jersey the other day because I thought I ran a stop sign. It took me a full day to realize that there just isn't a stop sign on the northwest corner.


BD says: (11/24/10 9:55 AM)
I haven't been through this intersection in the past couple days, but this has got to be a DDOT oversight. It will be a welcome addition once complete, though. It was very confusing to me why they'd initially put all-way stops at the I and L intersections, and left this one untouched.


JD says: (11/24/10 9:57 AM)
DDOT is checking on this, BTW.


JT says: (11/24/10 3:53 PM)
DDOT just put up a temporary stop sign at the corner, so it is now actually an all-way stop.
