A few readers have written to ask about some activity this week on a portion of the old trash transfer site at 2nd and I
. While there's always the hope that something exciting is in the offing, my sources tell me that in fact it's just WC Smith setting up a new construction staging for the apartment projects
in the block just to the north.
I'm also hearing that the new section of I Street
at the north end of this block could be opening by the end of the year, but, ahem, We Shall See.
This block, for those of you just joining us, is actually part of the Capper redevelopment footprint
, and there are eventually plans for a 320ish-unit mixed income residential building there, along with ground-floor retail. There is currently no timeline for that, however.
(I had originally thought that perhaps a parking lot was going in, but I should have remembered that parking lots on any of the Capper redevelopment footprint actually require zoning approval first.)
And so since this post is so boring, how about taking the few extra minutes you might have used to ponder it to fill out the reader poll
