Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

It's time once again for me to take a step back from the minute-by-minute piecemeal nature of news blogging to summarize all that's been going on in Near Southeast over the past 12 months, as well as to make some not-legally-binding guesses about the near future. Yes, it's my 2011 State of the Hood, and admittedly, like most addresses of this kind, it's not an essay of soaring prose, but more of a laundry list to help readers catch up with the the big milestones, especially those folks who don't obsessively follow every twist and turn by closely reading blogs that obsessively follow every twist and turn.
I don't want to give away too much (just read it!), but the theme is similar to what the neighborhood saw in 2009: there still haven't been any big non-publically funded holes in the ground dug since 2008, but the residential population continues to grow, office leases are picking up, stalled projects re-started, and the Yards Park's many events will be bringing lots of visitors to the neighborhood. (That big building where the Nationals play might continue to draw some folks, too, even in a year that will be mostly Strasburg-free but may still become Werth-y of attendance.)
You'll see the latest residential occupancy numbers (*spoiler*: buildings are almost all full up), lists of all the projects underway and completed, a reminder that new retail offerings aren't completely unheard of, and other highlights and lowlights of the year (9th Most Dangerous Neighborhood? Really?). It wraps up with a look forward, with the projects that are said to be starting in 2011, along with other milestones that might be in the offing. In other words, it's not short.
You can also browse back through the previous SOTH posts (2010, 2009, 2008, 2007) to be reminded of how much this neighborhood has seen in what really is a very short period of time.

JD, this is an excellent post. Great briefer for those are new to the Near SE Neighborhood.

I have a question regarding the renaming of the metro stations in the neighborhood. You didn't mention it in the State of the Hood, but I'm wondering whatever happened with it. Last I heard ANC approved it and we were waiting on DOT approval (was it?). Any idea when that might happen and how long after it gets approved.

@AB, yes, we're waiting at this point for the Mayor to recommend to Metro what the city thinks the new station name should be. I have some info on the process in my last post, from when the ANC approved: link

Great - I will bookmark/Add to Favorites.


MP says: (1/23/11 10:37 AM)
@AB & JD - I saw somewhere that Metro is considering selling station names (like stadiums do). I don't know how serious that was and if it has been shot down (I hope so), but could that be potentially holding it up too?
