Since January, 2003
            
 Page Through from Before to After

Readers have reported--and Donohoe has confirmed--that the company is beginning to put up scaffolding to erect "overhead protection" around the canopy on top of the Metro entrance at New Jersey and M. And within the next couple of weeks, demolition is expected to begin at St. Matthew's Church on the north end of the block, at L Street.
This is in preparation for what the company "hopes" is a start date later this summer for its 324-unit residential building at 1111 New Jersey (I'm not quite ready to call it "The Gallery at Capitol Riverfront" just yet).
Note that the building will not be directly on top of the Metro station, as 55 M is over at the west entrance. But the big concrete retaining walls and small hill of grass will go away, and the new building will be right at street level.
If 1111 does in fact get underway (my caution is well earned!), it will join the now-lengthy lineup of under-construction residential projects in the few years: Twelve12, Park Chelsea, River Parc, Parcel N, the Lofts at Capitol Quarter, and 800 New Jersey (which should be getting started Any Minute Now, and did in fact get its excavation permit last week). Including 1111 NJ and 800 NJ, that makes about 2,100 new units in the active pipeline. (And maybe 320 more if Grosvenor gets the residential and hotel part of Ballpark Square off the ground this year like it seems to be planning.)
That's a lot of new neighbors....

Regarding the Lofts at Capitol Quarter, what is Forest City going to do with the slope there, since the eastern end of the parcel looks to be about 20-25 ft higher than the western end. Will it be similar to the Marine housing across the street.

Also, Park Chelsea looks huge when you see if from a couple of blocks away.


JD says: (6/4/14 3:27 PM)
(It's actually the DC Housing Authority in charge of the construction of the Lofts--Forest City will just be doing the management once it's open.)

If you look at the rendering:

You can see how the building steps down as you head down the hill west on L.


JD says: (6/4/14 3:33 PM)
And the Park Chelsea is huge--432 units is more than twice as many as in Velocity and 160 more than in Onyx.


SWag says: (6/4/14 3:47 PM)
Either my grammar/English sucks or that second sentence reads funny. Exciting news either way!


JD says: (6/4/14 3:55 PM)
Some people are so picky with their book larnin'. :-)


SWag says: (6/4/14 4:00 PM)
@JD - English is my second language, so I wasn't even positive. LOL!! Now I can read it though!!


SWag says: (6/4/14 4:03 PM)
Also, does anyone have any clue what will eventually replace the parking lot between Parcel O and the river? Another building I'm assuming...


JD says: (6/4/14 4:05 PM)
Yes, another residential building. Someday.


JD says: (6/4/14 4:08 PM)
Oh wait, wait, the parking lot. (I was talking about the south side of Parcel O. The condo building won't take up the entire parcel.) I don't think that's where the Living Classrooms building might be. But since the Yards web site has been completely revamped, I can't find what I'm looking for right this second.

I'm thrilled that development in the neighborhood is picking up at a rapid pace. The only thing that really scares me is the Green Line, though. At times (and not even necessarily on game days), the crowding can be pretty bad. With northbound Green trains often stopping short of L'Enfant to wait on the additional Yellow trains coming from Franconia-Springfield, Metro doesn't have much wiggle room to add capacity and reduce headways (putting aside the notion of not having additional railcars available anyway). Since the neighborhood is now considered part of the central business district, we're at a bit of a disadvantage to be the only area not served by either multiple lines (Blue/Orange/Silver) or a single line with no interlining (Red). Something needs to be done, yet now the Council is cutting funding for the streetcar as well. Is anyone else worried?

@Daedam:

" we're at a bit of a disadvantage to be the only area not served by either multiple lines (Blue/Orange/Silver) or a single line with no interlining (Red)."

The Capitol South station is only about an 8-10 minute walk from the neighborhood. If you use WMATA's Next Train website, it is a convenient option.

@Daedam:

This might be another transit option at some point.

Department of Transportation Awards Grant for Fast Ferry Service

Contributed by Prince William County

$3.4 Million Awarded to Support Fast Ferry Service in the National Capitol Region

"WOODBRIDGE, VA… Today, Supervisor Frank J. Principi announced that the Department of Transportation has awarded $3.38 million in grant money to support improvements to the condition of public ferry systems by providing financial assistance for capital projects. “This is a huge win for fast ferry service in the National Capital Region,” said Supervisor Principi. The grant money will help establish a ferry service from Alexandria to the Naval Yard.

Supervisor Principi has long been an advocate for fast ferry service for the capitol region. Since taking office, Supervisor Principi has worked to bring ferry service to the forefront of the transportation debate. The Potomac River is the last unused highway between Prince William County and Washington, D.C. Every day, as Northern Virginia residents experience one of the longest commutes in the nation, the beautiful – and accessible – Potomac River sits unused for transportation purposes..."

Dang it, stop scooping my Tidbits!


Alan says: (6/4/14 4:45 PM)
Just a quick note: they took down one of the large stationary cranes at the Park Chelsea site yesterday. Then later in the day they put up (a different) crane at the Hampton Inn site. I imagine views of Nats games from the operator's cab have to be pretty awesome.


202_cyclist says: (6/4/14 4:48 PM)
@Alan:

Two more cranes were also installed in SW this past week. When one crane leaves, three more arrive!

Re: infrastructure ramifications of the neighborhood's development, the cut in funding of the streetcar was indeed pretty disappointing, especially for the prospects of getting the DC United Stadium deal pass through the Council (apparently Wells is considering changing his mind because there's no point in putting a stadium in a place that doesn't have a street car bridging the gap from the Waterfront Metro to/from the site?).

The ferry service might help ease a tiny bit of congestion, but I don't think that can really be counted on as a viable alternative to more Metro cars and more trains (other neighborhoods on the Green Line, like U Street, Shaw, Columbia Heights, Waterfront, etc. continue to grow too, thus warranting more significantly more service). In the very long term, does anyone know whether any of the Metro 2040 plan has been well-received?

I was hoping there would be a street car running from Anacostia to Buzzard point by early 2019. But, it seems that is not going to happen. You can't get any thing done with these mediocre city officials.

I am still hopeful though - the timeline for completion of South Capitol/Frederick Douglas bridge project, street car from Anacostia to Buzzard point, and Soccer Stadium by late 2018/early 2019 to happen.
