Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

I ended 2015 with a quick look back at the major development news of the neighborhood over the previous twelve months, so it would be fitting to not get too far into 2016 without a look ahead. But it is to be remembered of course that crystal ball gazing is inherently dicier, which is why I like writing posts that look back a whole lot more than I do ones that look forward.
First Out of the Gate
Let's start with the easy ones, the 436-unit Park Chelsea at 880 New Jersey and the 325-unit Arris at 4th and Tingey, both of which are showing signs of opening their doors in coming weeks.
In fact, let's look at photographic evidence from this weekend to support this theory, starting with the Park Chelsea's still-fenced-but-prepped front entrance and New Jersey Avenue frontage, plus the new section of I Street that at this point I believe is being kept closed merely for the fun of driving me insane.
At Arris, the sidewalks on Tingey and Water, on the building's north and south sides, are now open, and landscaping and lighting has arrived in the courtyards on the building's west side--along with most interesting sculptures/screens/whatever you want to call them that serve to give the courtyards and the units that face them a little bit of privacy.
Other Expected 2016 Deliveries
The JDLand crystal ball feels confident that the DC Housing Authority's two current projects, the Community Center at 5th and K and the 195-unit mixed-income Bixby/Lofts at Capitol Quarter at 7th and L will be the next developments to make it across the finish line, though the specific time frames are still a bit cloudy.
And work is now underway on the Yards Park Marina, which is supposed to be finished in spring/summer 2016.
Beyond that? The 305-unit Dock 79 at Florida Rock topped out in early November, and the exterior masonry and glass work are well underway. MRP Realty has said that it expects the building to deliver in July, but at the very least Signs Point to Yes on a delivery before the end of the year.
While 82 I/801 New Jersey looks about finished with vertical construction, and its red brick exterior is already up to its third floor, and a 2016 delivery had been announced last year, this one should probably be filed under We Shall See.
Otherwise, the rest of the current lineup of skeletons and holes in the ground are probably coming to you in 2017.
Retail on Tap for 2016
There's not a lot of announced retail in the 2016 pipeline at this point. All we have so far is that Philz Coffee will arrive Arris this spring and that optimists believe that the Brig beer garden at 8th and L will at last open its gates. The new Italian venture at the Park Tavern should (?) be arriving at some point as well, and maybe the Bardo Riverfront venture.
But there's at least 30,000 combined square feet of additional retail space in both Arris and Dock 79 that I imagine we'll be hearing about as the year goes on.
Projects That May Get Underway in 2016
(This category always gives me the shakes.)
The crystal ball feels reasonably confident that the condo and rental projects on what's known as Yards Parcel O will get started, with financing for the PN Hoffman condo portion already announced and various types of construction permit applications submitted and awaiting approvals.
Also looking likely to join the 2016 lineup is the new National Association of Broadcasters headquarters at the corner of South Capitol and M, presumably along with the 163-unit residential building that development Monument Realty is also planning for the site.
DC Water is itching to get going on its new headquarters, which will be built as a wraparound to the existing O Street Pumping Station, which happens to be immediately to the south of the Showplace Icon movie theater site, which is supposed to see construction start in 2016.
JBG's recently unveiled condo/rental/retail project for the west side of Half Street is scheduled to begin construction late in 2016, if all zoning and permitting goes according to plan.
Beyond that? The crystal ball would not be totally shocked to see the Jair Lynch condo/rental/retail project on the east side of Half Street get started sometime before the end of the year, and would be equally not totally shocked to see that wait until early 2017.
Movement on a new Douglass Bridge might also be on the boards for 2016, but whether actual start of construction can happen within the next 12 months, well, hope springs eternal.
As always, if this slew of words has you overwhelmed, check out the full development map and the guide down below it (yes, scroll down!) to give more clarity.

While we're at it, any predictions on the Nats for 2016?


JD says: (1/5/16 12:34 PM)
The crystal ball says: I'm Not Crazy.


Sally M says: (1/5/16 3:21 PM)
Really wish the Park Chelsea sidewalks would open, especially on NJ Ave, where the covered walkway that's currently the only option is cramped and often in the thick of the building construction.


MarkinDC says: (1/5/16 3:42 PM)
Can anyone explain why 801 NJ seems to be sitting so far into the street? There's almost no offset and it looks incredibly odd jutting out into NJ Ave when compared to the footprint of everything around it. It's almost as annoying to look at as the perfectly finished Eye St that still isn't open for use.


JD says: (1/5/16 3:44 PM)
Why do you people insist on asking questions for posts I already have written but haven't put up yet? :-)

IOW, coming soon.



JES says: (1/5/16 4:35 PM)
It's total crap that the people on the side of the street that have the most room (i.e., Park Chelsea and Agora) don't have to have their sidewalks accessible. If they did, we wouldn't have to be shoehorned into that 5-foot wide cattle chute.


keith18 says: (1/5/16 6:44 PM)
I will echo the posts above. The covered walkway in insufficiently wide and dangerous in at least two ways: One, construction trucks go in and out of the site constantly in a break in the walkway and two, the street is barely wide enough for two cars to pass in opposite directions (especially with large construction vehicles going in and out). It boggles my mind the ample space on the other side of the street has not been utilized.


dude says: (1/5/16 10:48 PM)
202_cyclist: Always Injured Nats will end up about the same as 2015. Stay Healthy Nats can get back to their 2014 form and maybe more. We'll see which we get.


Blue says: (1/6/16 12:13 AM)
Will someone please set the record straight and tell me how to pronounce Tingey? I always just mumble when I have to say it.


JD says: (1/6/16 8:30 AM)
With absolutely no authority, I say TinJey.

I also say Jif for .gif.

It might be my preference for the J sound. :-)


JD says: (1/6/16 8:33 AM)
And, believe it or not, there is actually a ruling:

link

It comes from a big project to determine the correct pronunciation of all Supreme Court cases, which included Tingey v. Baas.

link

And they brought in heavy-hitter Bryan Garner, so I'm taking their ruling as law.

It's tin-jee.



NewGuy says: (1/6/16 11:13 AM)
1244 South Capitol also going up in 2016. Not to nit-pick. :)


NewGuy says: (1/6/16 11:15 AM)
Unless of course you're including that in projects already underway that won't deliver until 2017. Which you probably are. So just ignore me. :)


JD says: (1/6/16 11:18 AM)
I won't ignore you, but you were right the second time. :-)


JD says: (1/6/16 3:57 PM)
Hey, look, someone's trying to get historic status for a smokestack!

link

(a chuckle for very longtime JDLand readers)


FromTheTurret says: (1/7/16 9:46 AM)
I street is paved, lines are painted and Park Chelsea appears to be done doing work that would interfere with the use of the road. Any predictions on the opening of I street?


JD says: (1/7/16 9:51 AM)
As I've said elsewhere (I think), my sense is at this point they are either waiting on a final signoff from DDOT, or just delaying a bit more until the building itself opens.

Or, as I said above, just keeping it closed because they know it's making me crazy.



JHUGrad says: (1/7/16 10:21 AM)
Any word on when the Showplace Icon project gets underway?


JD says: (1/7/16 10:23 AM)
Chances are if I knew, I would have said so in the post. :-)



nairobs says: (1/7/16 11:22 AM)
Is the winery still on tap for a start in 2016?


JD says: (1/7/16 11:25 AM)
There's not enough information to be sure. They say so, but they still have to go through zoning approvals, building permits, etc. etc. It's certainly possible, but I didn't feel confident enough to mention it.


JHUGrad says: (1/8/16 9:21 AM)
Looks like new development is coming up for Buzzard Point...
