For those who missed out on my interim Facebook blogging on Monday....
The designs for two new buildings coming to the current Trapeze School site at the Yards (known in the parlance as Parcel O) are going before the National Capital Planning Commission in April for an early "35% design review."
One is the 140ish-unit condo building being planned by PN Hoffman. It will front Tingey Street between 4th and a newly (re-)built 5th Street. Its design echoes the brick+glass look that Arris will have when it is completed. It will be the first condo project within the Yards.
Immediately to its south will be a two-towered 190ish-unit rental building to be developed by Forest City. There will be 16,700 square feet of ground-floor retail across both buildings, along with 246 below-grade parking spaces, and in addition to the return of 5th Street there will also be a one-block extension of Water Street along the block's southern side.
Both developers are looking to begin construction late this year or early next year.
In honor of now having renderings, I created a Parcel O project page--and while putting it together, I found the photo at right, showing the corner of 5th and Tingey from May, 2004, back when there was a 5th Street (such as it was). This view matches the rendering at far right in the row of three.
As for the Trapeze School, it will be moving later this year to the southeastern portion of Spooky Park, at the corner of New Jersey and Tingey.

Welcome back, JD! I was going into withdrawal... ;-)

Thank you! One of these years I'm going to get better at handling episodes like that, but I pretty much went nuts over the weekend.

My household is happy to see you back. We didn't realize how much we read the website...until it was down. And, I really like the design of the PNHoffman bldg. I see inspiration from the Boilermaker.

The Hoffman building was on the CFA agenda for tomorrow, but seems to have been deferred. The filing drawings show that those greenhouse-looking structures on the roof could be the first "occupiable penthouses" allowed under the recent Height Act revision!

I don't know what to make off the two towers of Forest city rental apartments. They are just too hideous.


JES says: (3/21/15 2:17 PM)
I kind of agree with Zoo; not Forest City's finest work there. But the condo building looks nice.


JD says: (3/22/15 8:17 PM)
Don't forget that these are 35% drawings. Still time for polishing. Think of the difference in the recent 82 I rendering compared to the one that floated around for a good while.

(Also, I'm back from a quick vacation. Don't think I missed anything, but....)
