New Jersey at Tingey, Looking West-Northwest (see more)

Here's a few more items that came across the transom while I was on my annual Hiding Out in Wyoming and Montana trip:
* Residents of Onyx have filed paperwork with the city under the Tenants Opportunity to Purchase Act and are investigating options to buy the building themselves, after news came a few weeks back that the building is under contract to be sold for $82.5 million. If the city accepts the filing, the tenants' group would then have 120 days to come up with a competing offer. See the tenants' press release for why the group is pursuing this, including its hope that buying the building, which opened in 2009, will "reverse problems which plagued the area for years - poor housing conditions, rent increases, and attempts by developers to force residents out of the District." (If they succeed, I guess I'll have to stop using my standard joke about tenants looking in the sofa cushions for millions of dollars in spare change to buy their buildings.)
* DC Water has leased 16,450 square feet of office space on the 7th floor of 80 M Street through 2019 (GlobeSt.com). With or without telescopes for spying on the Main Pumping Station a few blocks to the south?
* The Capitol Riverfront BID is having an Urban Design Framework Plan prepared, to "examine the quality of the public realm in the BID and develop strategies for a comprehensive framework and public investment plan in the right-of-way." They've also commissioned a Retail Analysis Study "that will provide forecasts on future retail demand and absorption possibilities." Because if there's one thing a neighborhood can never have enough of, it's studies and analyses. (BID newsletter)
* The Earth Conservation Corps is offering "bird of prey demonstrations" on Friday nights through Sept. 28 at Diamond Teague Park, from 5:30-7:30pm. (via e-mail, no link!)
* Another rumination on Near Southeast's development timeline, at GGWash. As I've said many times--of course things were happening in Near Southeast before the ballpark (I wouldn't have started this blog in 2003 otherwise). But to not recognize that the ballpark sped up *plans* considerably is to not have watched the 18-month landrush in 2004 and 2005 after the ballpark's location was announced, when so many little lots between 1st and South Capitol south of the freeway were snapped up by the big guns. And to say that the ballpark didn't drive development right after it opened is to neglect the worldwide financial market near-collapse, and the years needed to recover from that. But I bet there's a lot of retailers and developers looking at the Nats this year and rueing that they didn't make their move already.
* So, in line with all that, check out nine years ago today, windshield edition.
* Cat with Natitude, Guga edition. (I don't think I'll tell him about the bird of prey demonstrations.)

I don't know why there aren't any news of opening of retails like bed, bath and beyond and hardware stores? I think the Capitol River front BID is more focused on restaurants. Populations in the area is expected to be around 4000 and there are three apartments under construction.

The Boilermaker shops will open in afew months. I think most of the restausants will do well, but the Dry Cleaner shop may have porblems. Unless everyone in the Foundary Lofts goes there and supports it. Plus, theres already a dry celaner two blocks away at CHT. May see some quick turnover of newly opening shops in Near SE as development rolls ahead.


JD says: (8/21/12 9:08 PM)
Don't forget the thousands of USDOT workers, who might prefer to drop off their laundry right before work without an "extra" trip.


JD says: (8/21/12 11:40 PM)
(And Navy Yard folks, too. And people in Twelve12.)


Maelstrom says: (8/22/12 9:37 AM)
Speaking of Twelve12, it's starting to look like at least 50% of that pit is fully dug out. Lots of dirt has moved since the last set of pics.


ZoolanderANDtheBoYz says: (8/22/12 5:57 PM)
I walk through the construction once a week and it looks like they are done digging. My guess is they will starting pouring concrete sometimes soon. It seems like they had too many challenges and unexpected objects. Something that I don't get is that every time that I walk through in a weekdays I see a few people doing the digging. I don't know if they are been careful of finding some strange unexploded world war I/II bomb that weighs more than 100 lbs and it can probably do a major damage if it is dug like any other typical construction objects.

Fans of tubular steel will love the new Canal Park sculptures.

I would've preferred something with a little more color and creativity.


Maelstrom says: (8/30/12 8:28 AM)
Best post I could see to attach this to: Anyone have info on those new fences on the south side of M between 4th and Isaac Hull? That is a very busy sidewalk and now it's blocked off. Is it wall repair, demolition, or something else?
