 Sliding from Before to After

All sorts of small stuff that has recently been Tweeted, or just left to molder until I finally got around to posting:
* A raze permit application has been filed by the Florida Rock folks for the concrete plant operated by Vulcan Materials Co. on Potomac Avenue just south of Nationals Park. This in an of itself is quite interesting, made even more interesting by a lack of response from Florida Rock Properties when I inquired as to what this planned razing might mean. From what I'm told, raze permits are valid for one year from the date of issuance (and this one hasn't been issued yet). The plan has been for a 1.1-million-square-foot mixed-use project that would include office, residential, hotel, and retail in four buildings, plus lots of open space. (Note that the western part of the project can't be built until the new Douglass Bridge is built and the current one is demolished, which doesn't seem to be happening anytime soon). Whether the current plans will still be going forward with the current owners or if changes are in the works, we'll just have to wait and see, though considering that it took FRP a decade or so to get zoning approvals for the site, it would be no fun to see the process start over again.
* There was a kitchen fire on the 3rd floor of the Capper Seniors building at 900 5th St. SE on Monday night, according to tweets from DCFireEMS. The bulk of the fire was handled by the sprinkler system, they say, and there were no injuries.
* The DC Music Fest planned for the Yards Park on May 7 has been cancelled "due to a lack of funding and sponsorships."
* The Five Guys at Nationals Park will not be back for the 2011 season, says Curbed DC. (The one on 2nd Street across from Canal Park is not affected by this.)
* Speaking of the ballpark, in case your attention hasn't yet turned to baseball, note that Opening Day is next Thursday (March 31), with NatsFest being held at 4 pm the day before. The first series of games (Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday) will all be early afternoon starts (1:05 pm on Thursday and Saturday and the normal 1:35 pm start on Sunday).
And Saturday's game is bookended by Family Fun Day at Yards Park, being held from 11 am to 4 pm in conjunction with the National Cherry Blossom Festival. (Plus there's all the goings-on that day on the Southwest Waterfront, including the big fireworks display.)

I'm a little confused: I was under the impression that the Douglass Bridge was not going to be redone again. The current bridge seems satisfactory to me, although the proposed alternatives certainly seem more appealing. Is the U-Haul adjacent to the bridge planning to remain in its location?


JD says: (3/22/11 1:29 PM)
The lowering of the bridge's approach and removal of the viaduct was just a temporary fix (tied mainly to getting the ballpark open, since the old viaduct would have basically rubbed up against the admin building on the southwest side of the stadium).

There have been plans for almost a decade now to build a new bridge slightly downriver of the current one. It would probably require the demolition of the buildings on the south end of the U-Haul block, but probably not the U-Haul itself. But that's a long ways off--if you have stuff stored there, it's not like you'll need to move it next week. :)

See my Douglass Bridge page for all the details: link

I remember writing about this back when I first started, thinking that 2011 as a possible start date for the new bridge seemed like a million years away! But they need federal dollars to pay for it.

Taxpayer dollars. There is no such thing as federal dollars.

@58model...

Well aren't you a ray of sunshine. Though when comparing one set of taxpayer dollars to another its generally more helpful, for clarity, to refer to them by their redistibuter. In this case, primarily the district, not federal gov't.

@JD
I've walked over the Douglass Bridge before (terrifying) and noticed that the center is a turntable bridge. My question: do you know if it still has the ability to open?


JD says: (3/24/11 9:32 AM)
Alan, yes, it can still open, and does a couple of times a year.


Alan says: (3/24/11 9:47 AM)
@JD
AWESOME. I want to go watch from Yards Park next time it occurs.


R. says: (3/24/11 1:42 PM)
Blah - could the architecture in the rendering be any more generic? I feel like I've seen these buildings before, in every other "revitalized" neighborhood in DC and the surrounding suburbs. As much as I support the revitalization/redevelopment of the Capitol Riverfront, I do worry that the area is beginning to have that corporate office park look. Is it too much to ask that developers design buildings with character?
