1st at N, Looking Northwest (see more)

I didn't really intend to go completely off-grid for a long weekend, but a road trip to and from north Florida didn't leave me much time or energy for blogging. What did I miss?
* I assume everyone's heard by now that Bruce Springsteen will be playing at Nats Park on Sept. 14. Tickets go on sale on Friday, April 27 at 10 am at tickets.com. (If I'm not showing appropriate enthusiasm, I apologize, but Springsteen just hasn't ever really done it for me. I think I was permanently scarred by everyone around me going so crazy for him when I was in college, during the whole Born in the USA era. I just hid in my room and listened to R.E.M., and U2, and the Smiths, and Squeeze, and Elvis Costello, and....)
* The Nats' current homestand continues for the rest of the week, with tonight being the first $2 Ticket Tuesday of the season. Then there's Neighborhood Night on Thursday, April 19, followed by the season's first Pups in the Park game at 1:05 pm Saturday, April 21, and Kids Opening Day at 1:35 pm Sunday, April 22.
* If you're not availing yourself of tonight's $2 Ticket Tuesday, perhaps you might want to check out the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce's session on real estate development in and around Capitol Hill, which will be focusing on the areas east of South Capitol and south of East Capitol, which includes Near Southeast. Tommy Wells is scheduled to be part of the lineup. It's from 7 to 9 pm at the Meader Theater (NCC's new home) at 535 8th St., SE.
* Saturday, April 21 is Lantern Making Family Day at the Yards Park, as part of the lineup of events as the Cherry Blossom Festival comes to a close. There are two sessions, at 10 am and noon, followed by a parade/procession through the park.
* It's a bit outside my boundaries, but residents and others may be interested to know that the new Anacostia Riverwalk Trail Bridge crossing the railroad tracks just north of Pennsylvania Avenue will be opening on April 24.
And, some non-event tidbits:
* Square 696, the block bounded by I, K, Half, and First owned by DRI and Jamestown and originally branded as "The Plaza on K," is apparently being relaunched as "Congressional Square," though that doesn't seem to have filtered down to any web sites just yet. It's still an 825,000-square-foot office and retail project.
* On Opening Day, I noticed a lot of cars parked in the fenced-off lot on the southeast corner of 1st and M SE that belongs to the former National Geospatial Intelligence Agency building. I asked Forest City about it, and they said that they will offer parking in that lot for certain games where big crowds are expected, but aren't planning to make it available for daily use.
* In the 700 block of Virginia Avenue, the Miles Glass building and the auto repair shop next door are no more, but at least they are now permanently enshrined as entries #168 and #169 in the Demolished Buildings Gallery. A parking lot is expected to be built for temporary use, while the National Community Church works on its plans for a larger events space on the site.

I guess calling it "The Plaza on K" must have been confusing. Every time people talk about "K street", the first thing that comes to your mind is K st NW not SE. The Congressional Square sounds much better. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't start construction five years from now though. You just have to see the 1015 Half street, the building completed several months ago and it is still empty.


Alan says: (4/18/12 10:03 AM)
JD, they are putting a sidewalk in today on the Western edge of the newly named Congressional Square lot. It's the heavily used grassy area on Half St between I and K. I guess they're hoping to make the parcel look more attractive.

Good for Tommy Wells for (finally) paying attention to development in his ward. How was the meeting? I didn't go because I wasn't there.


JD says: (4/18/12 1:06 PM)
I didn't go to the meeting--I am probably off the meetings merry-go-round until mid-summer, unless it's a meeting where something's going to be decided or something big is unveiled (like CSX's next big shindig). I'd prefer to save my depleted energies for other activities, until I'm back to full strength.

"...R.E.M., and U2, and the Smiths, and Squeeze, and Elvis Costello, and....)"

Which of these bands is still, like Springsteen, making an impact on music? Um... maybe U2? :-)

Does a map of the concern layout at Nats Park exist anywhere?


GaryRKarr says: (4/18/12 2:32 PM)
I mean "concert" layout. Clearly I need Mr. JD Land. Or to be moderately competent at typing.


JD says: (4/18/12 2:49 PM)
Oh, and Alan, that's good to hear about that new sidewalk. That's been needed there for a long time.
