2nd (West) at I, Looking Northeast (see more)

I already looked down this month, now it's time to look up.
* ARRIS: Let's start with the now-topped-out Arris apartment building at the Yards. In addition to its having reached its final height, the masonry work on the five lowest floors of the eastern portion of the site is pretty far along, and windows have started appearing in the second floor.
While the three "pavilions" on the western side (not seen real well in this shot, but check the rendering) will be brick-faced all the way up their eight floors, the east tower's upper façade will be all glass, with an undulation that's obvious even with just the concrete in place.
This building will have 325 rental units and 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and is expected to open in early 2016.
* PARK CHELSEA: It certainly won't win the prize as Speediest Construction Project Ever, and the countdown to the start of leasing has changed its target from July 1 to September 15, but work on the 430ish-unit rental building on New Jersey Avenue does continue. You may have seen the forms with the planets-and-the-stars design that have now been hoisted up to their final perches on the roof--I've been told this is based on Johannes Kepler's "star polygon tessellations," which I concede is way too much education for JDLand to normally pass along.
* LOFTS AT CAPITOL QUARTER AND CAPPER COMMUNITY CENTER: They may not be tall, but they are wide--as is my lens, thankfully. If you are wondering about the concrete portion on the western end of the Loft's construction, that's parking for residents of the building's 195 mixed-income units. The two projects, both along L Street between 5th and 7th, should be completed in 2016.
* THE BRIG: I certainly could have used a drink after the 11 miles of walking I did in two passes on Sunday to properly update my photo archive, but while work on the beer garden at 8th and L to be known as The Brig continues, it still has a ways to go before it begins quenching thirsts. But it's interesting to now start to see the outline of its contribution to the "skyline" along 8th.
The links above have lots more information on each project, of course. And I skipped the Hampton Inn in the roundup, but I wouldn't want it to feel left out.

And in unrelated news, I think I can now say that the 503 errors did not follow us to this new home. (I think the site can slow down a bit at peak, but that does start to become an I-Get-What-I-Pay-For issue, and at least is the sort of thing people are more used to dealing with.)

Awesome update, JD! Thanks a bunch. I think Arris is really shaping up to be a good looking building. I actually like that whole part of the neighborhood, with the brand new buildings doing a good job of complementing the retrofitted Boilermaker Shops and Lumber Shed. Regardless, it's nice to see projects in various stages of completion - looks like we'll be getting a pretty steady series of openings through the 2016-2017 timeframe!


JD says: (4/28/15 3:25 PM)
(Famous last words on the 503 error, but if you saw one in the past little while it was because the shared server was having to be restarted--a different breed from the lickety split ones from before.)


willinrm says: (4/29/15 8:35 AM)
Finally let me create an account, yayyyyyy!!!! You might have mentioned this in past posts.. but I didn't see The Brig on project directory, is there an estimate completion date for it? (fingers crossed for this summer!!)


JD says: (4/29/15 9:40 AM)
Sorry about the account thing--I think you got caught up in the site move. (If anyone else out there reading this has been unable to create an account in the past few days, try again)

As for the Brig, the original target date was May, which always looked optimistic, but a reader who talked to an on-site worker was told that June is probably even a stretch. As I always say, it'll open when it opens. Something about restaurants (other than Biersch and Bonchon) make them incredibly slow processes. And the Brig, while not a restaurant and with a much smaller "build out," is still starting from scratch.


ZoolanderANDtheBoYz says: (4/29/15 1:49 PM)
Mrs. JD, your camera would be a good use if you go down right now and capture the dark soaked soil from 909. Yo, everyone the smell of gasoline is back.


ZoolanderANDtheBoYz says: (4/29/15 1:52 PM)
*soaked in gasoline


ZoolanderANDtheBoYz says: (4/29/15 2:00 PM)
Call me crazy but, I am starting to speculate why we haven't seen what 909 looks like? The more they dig, the more they find a toxic soil. Hey, unless you are trying to find oil underneath of that or you are trying to dig till where you can not find how deep the gasoline went down - you will dig till your money drains.



JD says: (4/29/15 2:17 PM)
And I should do what you tell me to because you're always so nice to me?


ZoolanderANDtheBoYz says: (4/29/15 2:33 PM)
Mrs. JD, I am very sorry.. I apologize from my bottom of my heart. I am being genuine. Sometimes, I say something that I didn't meant to say and I don't know how to fix it. Or it just becomes too late to fix it or to say sorry.

Yes, I am cult follower. I check your site three or more than that every day. I am sort of addicted to it (there is no sarcasm here).

I guess I will blame chrome over VPN for my frustration.


SWag says: (4/29/15 3:59 PM)
*Game of Thrones reference* JD is Lord Commander John Snow. Zoolander is Janos Slynt (bald guy in the Night's Watch). His head is on the chopping block. What should she do after that feeble apology? (JK about it being feeble, it just ties into the episode)


JD says: (4/29/15 4:15 PM)
(I'm trying to come up with a commensurate Mad Men reference, since that's what I watch on Sunday nights. :) )


202_cyclist says: (4/29/15 4:22 PM)
@Zoolander--- nope, no health concerns there, just go ahead and start fracking that stuff!


202_cyclist says: (4/29/15 4:26 PM)
@Zoolander: also, isn't gasoline supposed to be the smell of FREEDOM!!! or some BS like that?


ZoolanderANDtheBoYz says: (4/29/15 6:22 PM)
@ Swag...I just fell down, lol swag.

FYI, you are a tool swag @swag. No, I am not Janos Slynt. I am Targaryen and you will change in to ashes by my dragons. Watch out swag.

@202, high five - yes, gasoline is supposed to be a smell of freedom.


JD says: (4/29/15 11:48 PM)
@202, did you see you got your newest crane today? At Florida Rock, as I predicted.
