The proposed 8th Street Beer Garden is back before the Historic Preservation Review Board, with a "substantially simplified" design that the board's staff has deemed sufficiently compatible with the character of the surrounding Capitol Hill Historic District.
The first floor is now proposed to have a brick veneer (though it's not really shown on the new rendering that the beer garden team was kind enough to pass along), and there have been other changes that HPRB staff say have improved the overall proportions of the building. There's also now a pergola (arbor) on the roof to help with shading on sunny days. Sidewalk seating spaces are also shown, though the developer will have to get a public space permit and work around the bus stop currently at the 8th and L intersection.
There are still a few small issues the HPRB staff would like to see addressed, but they have recommended that the concept be approved by the board, and the project has been placed on the consent calendar for the March 24 meeting. (Though the board may choose to remove it from consent if they have any issues they want to discuss before voting.)
You can see a larger view of this revised design alongside the previous version and some current photographs on my new 8th Street Beer Garden page, which isn't exactly a barn-burner but at least it's something. (It goes hand-in-hand with my new National Community Church page, which has photos of the lots NCC now owns.)
The HPRB meeting is on Thursday at 10 am, and will be available via live streaming or on demand. (Or you could go to the meeting in person, but that's so 20th century.)
UPDATE, 3/24: The consent portion of the agenda passed with no discussion, so the design concept is now considered approved by the board ("as consistent with the purposes of the preservation act"), with final approval delegated to HPRB staff.

Any more info on the Beer Garden plans from the Bullpen people on Half and M?

Thanks for your updates


JD says: (3/21/11 1:03 PM)
@Kev29, just that it's coming as soon as they can get permits and work done. A reader mentioned that a tent went up on the Half and M spot within the past few days.


Kev29 says: (3/21/11 1:52 PM)
Sweet! Thanks JD. Opening Day in 10 days!

Let's see, two beer gardens and a Wine & Spirits establishment. Just what a neighborhood on the rebaond needs: lots of alcohol. Hopefully there will be some pawn shops soon. Or maybe one of those upscale payday loan joints.

58Model - that's the funniest thing I've read in ages. Thanks for that!

I'm not sure that either beer garden or Harry's is going to to be an obstacle to the neighborhood's improvement. Happy to have these businesses moving in. I'm sure they will soon be joined by a grocery store, more restaurants, a school, etc.

Won't someone please think of the children? Waaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Wait a minute. I just took a closer look at these drawings. What's going to stop drunks from crawling up on a shelf and falling off the roof? A pedestrian will need a falling-drunk industrial strength umbrella to stroll safely in these parts.

The tent is also up at the original Bullpen as well.
