South Capitol at I, Looking Southeast (see more)

This week I've looked at the buildings that are far along in their construction, and I've looked at the newest topped-off project, and I've even mentioned the project that is just about to start digging, so what's left? A mere seven projects that are in their vertical construction phase, at various levels of out-of-the-ground.
We'll start with 801 New Jersey/82 I (above/left), now a smidge more than halfway toward its eventual 13-story height. This is the Graystar/RCP 227-unit apartment building that is expected to open in 2016.
Just up the block is 800 New Jersey, aka the Whole Foods building, which looks just barely out of the ground from New Jersey (below left), but if you venture up 2nd Street (below right) you can see evidence of the ramp for the grocery store parking that will be on the second and third floor. (Resident parking will be below ground, shared with its sibling the Park Chelsea and the eventual third residential building along the east side of the block.) This building will have about 336 rental units:

Two projects have at least some hint of their first floors built: the 380-unit building at 909 Half Street will be a lot larger than this small section of construction at Half and I makes it look like at the moment (below left), while the Homewood Suites at Half and M really does also have a portion of its first floor built, though the nasty late fall shadows make it hard to see.
Next up are three projects that are technically out of the ground, although it's just rebar breaking the plane at the moment, but concrete shouldn't be far behind. Behold terribly unexciting pictures of the status of the F1rst residential project and the Residence Inn immediately to its north, plus the Gallery at Capitol Riverfront/1111 New Jersey.
But if you like photos of holes being dug, you're still in luck. There's now clear evidence of the excavation work at Skanska's 99 M office building project, and while nothing will ever really arise from the cut-and-cover work on the new portion of the Virginia Avenue Tunnel (seen here looking west from 5th Street) it's still digging.
In the midst of all of these updates over the past few days, I did some redevelopment of my own, and finally created individual pages for the Square 701/Not-Ballpark-Square trio of projects, so now you can check out the progress on the Hampton Inn, F1rst/Residence Inn, and 99 M in a less jumbled format.

I am impressed with the progress of 82 I Street. It seems like they are completing at least one floor per week.

In other news, something needs to be done about the gun-play in DC. We had our windows open yesterday afternoon to enjoy the nice weather and there was another shooting just on the other side of South Capitol Street, almost directly next to the police station. If crime continues to increase, it will be interesting to see if as many people will move back cities throughout the US.

I'll be honest that I'm not terribly excited by pictures of dirt and holes, I thought I should at least post some comment because this post is full of info. So there.

As for crime and guns and shootings and killings, just remember these wise words: you can be killed any day in any fashion.


conngs0 says: (11/13/15 9:13 AM)
You really threw some sunshine down on that one, dude! Indeed, the pictures of dirt and holes aren't all that exciting on their own, but I find the progress that they represent is quite exciting. The time that lapses from conceptualization of a project to visible progress can be pretty significant. Of course, I'm always amazed by how long it takes to dig those holes before a structure starts to come out of them, but the whole experience is just an exercise in patience I suppose.

And yeah, amidst all this development progress and prosperity (for many), we do get reminders that we still live in a big city. Right now seems to be an especially scary time (at least compared to the last few years). There are too many facets to the recent uptick in crime to address in a post. I'd just agree with 202 and dude inasmuch as the trend bears scrutiny, but it's important not to panic or overreact. In the meantime our responsibility to continue to get to know our neighbors, develop relationships with the police and stay on top of any negative trends.

dude-- the holes in the ground and LIVE CRANE ACTION 2015!!!!! is one of the best parts of this blog.


JD says: (11/13/15 10:50 AM)
See? I have readers with a very wide range of interests that I try to accommodate!


JHUGrad says: (11/13/15 11:48 AM)
Well said, conngs0. I feel pretty fortunate to own property in the Capitol Riverfront. I think in 5 - 10 years, this will be one of the more dynamic places to live in DC. One way to keep crime down is for people living in the area to get to know one another and voice concerns to their ANC representatives, who can then voice these concerns to the police and councilmembers.


JD says: (11/13/15 5:36 PM)
I can't remember whether this has been mentioned anywhere (here or otherwise), but the city has begun eminent-domain-ing some property along South Capitol Street near Potomac Avenue and the river for the right-of-way for the new Douglass Bridge and the big traffic circle.



dude says: (11/13/15 7:27 PM)
Oh, I just want to make it clear that JDLand is my favorite blog on the Internet. To me the dirt and holes are the least exciting part is all.

As for cranes, how do they get that big weight to the top? Anyone ever seen that in action?


202_cyclist says: (11/13/15 7:34 PM)
Hey dude-- they use another crane, called a crawler, to assemble it.


Alan says: (11/14/15 11:21 AM)
And the crawler is often assembled by a smaller crane. So in order to build a crane you need a small crane to build the crawler crane to build the big crane. It's bananas.
