New Jersey at M, Looking South-Southwest (see more)

If you're wondering how come I haven't posted that much lately, it's because a few months ago I decided I was only going to post about "big news", and there's been a bit of a lull in that department. But I still do pass stuff along on Twitter, which you can see in the Twitter box here on the JDLand home page and which also mostly gets cc'ed to the JDLand Facebook page. That's where you can keep up all sorts of little things about the neighborhood that aren't really blog-post-worthy.
I think there will be some posts coming before too long--a few things seem to percolating around that may draw me out soon, plus there's that ramp from the outbound 11th Street freeway bridges to northbound DC-295 should be coming before too long (UPDATE, five hours later: yes, indeedy). There's not always a lot of news in December, anyway. And not a lot of stuff to take updated photos of right now.
Just didn't want people to think I'd completely closed up shop.
But, if there's anything that I'm being too lazy to post about that folks want to discuss, have at it in the comments. (Suggested topics for discussion: the Navy Yard keeping their portion of the RIverwalk closed because they haven't yet fixed the security issues with the turnstiles into their campus, and Xavier Cervera perhaps selling off his restaurant empire, including the not-yet-opened Park Tavern at Canal Park and Willie's Brew and 'Que at the Boilermaker Shops.)

According to the Velocity management, toll brothers will start construction this spring on the north side of velocity lot. It is probably going to take them a year and half to complete. I am pretty sure it will be completed before Twelve12 and Park Chelsea.

Zoolander, this is going to be condos, I assume? Or did you hear?

Also, DCHA will start breaking ground this March on the apartments across from the Marine Barracks on L St between 6th and 7th.

Nope, I don't think so. No one is going to build 200+ condo building these days. It is just really hard to sell that size condo building (unless all of them are one bedroom and studio units). All the condos that are being built in the city are under 50 units. Right now, it is an apartment market and we probably won't see large size condo for the next several years. The Velocity condo has 200 units and they started selling three years ago and they still have between 20 to 25 unsold units left (mostly two bedrooms).

The sales office at Velocity spoke of that lot becoming a hotel at some point. This was 3 years ago so who know's at this point.


JD says: (12/17/12 5:44 PM)
Hoff, the remaining two lots on the Velocity block have been purchased this year by Toll Brothers, which only does residential, so the question at this point is only whether the new building will be apartments or condos. When I broke the news of the first lot being purchased link there was no information one way or the other.

And if they do start in 2013, they can finish faster than other projects because they don't have to dig the garage and substructure, which Cohen completed back when Velocity was built.

@B, the Square 882 possible start was what I was alluding to as "percolating" in my above post, but until there's an official announcement, and/or a building permit, I wouldn't write any dates on my calendar. Ditto for Toll. :)
