Since January, 2003

Half at K, Looking South (see more)

In years past I've waited until my Jan. 19 anniversary date, but this year I decided to shift my sixth annual survey of what's happened and what's going to happen to the same approximate time when everyone else on the planet does theirs, right at New Year's. (Except I waited until people are actually back from the holidays.) So here is my 2012 State of the Hood, with its characteristic torrent of words describing Near Southeast's progress over the past 12 months and also what's on the boards for the next 12 months (hint: Food, Glorious Food!).
If you've been religiously following JDLand content, there probably won't be anything new, but if you're a recent arrival or if you only check in so often, this is a good way to get caught up on developments big and small.
In a similar vein, it's become quite a trend for blogs to list their Top 10 Posts of the Year, so I figured I'd hop on the bandwagon (though technically mine is Top 10 Most Visited Posts and Non-Project Pages of 2011). If you look at this, you may not have even need to plow through all the SOTH verbiage, but I hope you do anyway:
After a number of years spent treading water, it's been fun to have some actual news to report during the past 12 months. And it appears there will be no shortage of milestones coming in 2012. Enjoy....
UPDATE: As always, as soon as I post it, I realize there's something I should have included. So if you're wondering about crime in Near Southeast in 2011 compared to other years, here's my 2011 Crime Incidents page, with all the stats broken out for you. There were 40 more crimes reported than in 2010, all of which can be attributed to a jump in Theft reports, which isn't a surprise when more people live in the neighborhood. Other crimes basically stayed the same.

How about Monument and Akridge Half street project?


JD says: (1/3/12 1:27 PM)
Second-to-last paragraph under Other 2012 Goings-On and Possibilities: "As for other possible starts, hope springs eternal that either Akridge or Monument will begin construction on their empty Half Street lots, since it's always that one-block stretch north of the ballpark that receives the laser-like focus of media outlets wanting to gauge the health of the neighborhood, no matter what's going on elsewhere. And of course one of the many office buildings on the boards could snag a big enough tenant to start development."

(In case it's not obvious, neither of them have announced anything)

Jd where are the residential number breakdowns? Thanks


JD says: (1/3/12 2:39 PM)
Third paragraph, second sentence: "(Note: This year I'm leaving statistics and occupancy numbers to the upcoming Capitol Riverfront BID annual report.)"

I think the Nats upped their food offering game this year.

Loved the Shack Shake burgers and the relaxing chairs.

Looks like an assault with a deadly weapon on New Year's right in front of Justin's Cafe? When/what are the details of THAT?


MJM says: (1/4/12 1:03 PM)
They are juicy details but probably not a good idea of posting here


JD says: (1/4/12 2:49 PM)
Oh, come on, you can't get away with posts like that.
