I've got a few more itty bitty items, so let's have another tidbit go-round:
* LOT LAYING:
Enough people have written (and progress has been so slow) that I finally have to post that the work many of you are seeing on the Congressional Square
block at 1st and I isn't the beginning of development there--the word is that the parking lot on the west side of the block is being extended eastward.
* TRAILER PLACING:
A building permit just came through the pipeline for a temporary sales trailer at 1000 1st St. SE
. The land. owned by Akridge, is unlikely to be about to see any large-scale construction, so might this instead be the beginnings of a leasing center for Toll's River Parc
across the street?
* FERRY DOCKING:
Following up on the ferry news from last week
, I finally heard back from the office of Frank Principi in Woodbridge--it sounds like the routes and docking locations are still not 100 percent decided on. There is a stakeholder's group that will ultimately make the decisions, and it is meeting later this month to work on the project. So reports of a "Navy Yard" destination or a St. Elizabeth's destination or a Bolling destination appear to be premature.
