Since January, 2003
            
 Page Through from Before to After

While the appearance of a canopy over a front entrance does not signal that an under-construction apartment building is ready to start welcoming residents next week, it's still an interesting progress point to see at both the Park Chelsea and Arris residential projects. There's also landscaping starting to go in along the Park Chelsea's sidewalks on both New Jersey and would-you-just-open-already I Street--plus the leasing countdown clock has remained set for January 2016 for a few months now. As for Arris, the latest word remains "early 2016" for when it will open--and 2016 just isn't as far away as it used to be.
To the east, the not-minor project to do the masonry work and the siding at the 195-unit mixed-income Lofts at Capitol Quarter at 7th Street continues--apologies for only showing the rear of the building when I take a wide shot, but with the trees and the narrowness of L Street it's basically impossible for me to get a good photograph of the front. (Plus the low sun angle from late October through early March makes southern-facing photos a pretty miserable experience with a pretty miserable outcome, anyway.)
At 5th and K, the Capper Community Center's exterior isn't changing too much at this stage, but I'd get the shakes if I tried to not photograph it.
At New Jersey and Tingey, the new trapeze school building's blue-and-white exterior is mostly finished, though I'm such a bad blogger that it didn't occur to me to walk up to the big opening and peek in--but TSNYDC has posted a photo of the inside.
As for the Brig, the beer garden-to-be at 8th and L, the building itself looks pretty well finished now, though the "garden" portion of the venture does not appear to have gotten underway yet. And with two pit bulls on guard (!), I wasn't about to poke my camera through the fence for a better view.
And while I had designs on pressing my camera up against the glass at Buffalo Wild Wings on Half Street, they were having a staff training session when I arrived, and so I chickened out (Bad Blogger Data Point #2). But the gentleman I spoke with there confirmed again the Nov. 16 opening date, saying that the doors will open that day at 10 am--and that they generally have people camping out over Sunday nights to be among the first 100 customers through the door, who are then winners of the free-wings-once-a-week-for-a-year prize. Hope y'all have warm sleeping bags!
Still to come, the skeletons-and-holes report.

"chickened out". Nice.

It looks like Arris and Park Chelsea are going to open about the same time, which is going to bring a huge flux of people down to the Navy Yard area. I hope Metro is planning to add more trains to the morning rush hour!

My prediction is that in 5 years, the Capitol Riverfront will be a mini downtown DC.

@JHU Grad: Do we really want it to be a miniature version of dtwn DC? At times I feel the downtown area to be very generic--and Navy Yard starting to feel like V I R G I N I A..

In other news, a first rendering for Lerner's 1000 South Capitol proposed residential building:

(It's a U-shaped building, with the courtyard facing east toward 1015 Half St.)

Maybe residents in Park Chelsea will feel the crunch on the Green line and walk to Capitol South. Either way, the Green line is going to start feeling pretty cramped by 2018, especially on baseball and/or soccer days.


JD says: (11/10/15 11:33 AM)
The Park Chelsea (and then its sibling the Whole Foods building) will be by far the largest apartment buildings anywhere close to Capitol South. I wouldn't be surprised that a lot of people who decide to live there will already be Orange/Blue line commuters. (Or Hill rats.)


RMP says: (11/10/15 11:45 AM)
I contacted the Forest City leasing office to ask about Arris and all they said was that they added me to an "interest list" but gave zero information about when leasing actually begins.


JES says: (11/10/15 12:01 PM)
LOL. Metro adding trains. Now THAT is a good joke.


BethD says: (11/10/15 12:24 PM)
I live in Capitol Hill Tower and already prefer to walk up to Capitol South. More walking but removes an AM rush transfer at Gallery Place which is not a great way to start the day.
