New Jersey at H, Looking South-Southwest (see more)

The Capitol Riverfront BID held its annual meeting on Thursday, and while I wasn't there (don't ask), both the Annual Report and the presentation slides are now available for your perusal.
It won't shock anyone who passes by here with any regularity, but the main topic was the neighborhood's current building frenzy, described as "the largest development boom in its history" (ahem), one that is expected to last at least through 2018 and that was responsible for 32 percent of all apartment construction starts in DC in 2015.
The neighborhood's population is up to an estimated 4,800 residents, with that number expected to rise above 9,000 in the next three years, thanks in large part to the nine residential projects currently under construction and at least another seven (and probably more) in the near-time pipeline.
There don't appear to have been any announcements of new retail or anything, though I do see confirmation of the rumors I've heard that 82 I Street is going to be named ORE 82.
One thing that hasn't been important up to now but will be going forward is that the Capitol Riverfront boundaries and the JDLand Coverage Area are not a 100 percent match, because the BID includes Buzzard Point and hence the coming development thanks to DC United's stadium.
Read both the slides and the report for more details, and then just keep coming back here to read about it all As It Happens.

JD,

Maybe a new category - Near Near Southeast :-)


JD says: (1/19/16 10:55 AM)
Warning: With a big snow storm seeming to be imminent, I'm going to be retreating into my weather geek alter (alter?) ego this week, so it might take some pretty big news to divert my attention back in this direction. :)


JD says: (1/19/16 11:00 AM)
(Though if you want to turn this comment thread into a weather geekout, I'll allow it.)


JHUGrad says: (1/19/16 12:13 PM)
Looks like ORE 82 will have retail....

Snow!!!!,


conngs0 says: (1/20/16 9:04 AM)
Any predictions, JD? It's super exciting to read stories of these "models" indicating that the District could get upwards of two feet of snow! Sure seems like a recipe for disappointment to me though...


JD says: (1/20/16 10:46 AM)
It's gonna snow. :)

I think a foot of snow is pretty likely--beyond that, someone's going to get 2 feet, and someone's probably going to get 3 feet, it's just a matter of where the heavy bands set up. But the models don't normally go this uniformly crazy, and for so many runs in a row.

Feel free to report in on the scene at Teeter.



walt says: (1/20/16 10:47 AM)
Any idea what the ORE in ORE 82 stands for? Just curious. And is it pronounced as iron ore? or possibly more of a Norwegian pronounciation? Or is it an Acronym and we are meant to sound out each letter? O_R_E 82?
Not sure why this matters to me...



JD says: (1/20/16 10:48 AM)
I could not tell you anything about Ore, ORE, O-R-E 82.

Oreo!

Nice subtle Simpsons reference in the headline, JD:).


JD says: (1/20/16 10:59 AM)
THANK YOU! I debated using it, but figured *someone* would recognize it.


jaanku says: (1/20/16 1:05 PM)
It's great that they're developing this area, but why so long to build more condos/houses? Apartments do nothing for the area other than make developers rich. And where is the retail and commercial development? There's not much to do in the area. The existing establishments are good, but we need more, espeically with so many people expected to move in.


rshorn says: (1/20/16 1:42 PM)
To respond to jaanku, I was reading somewhere this past weekend (cannot find the source for the life of me) about Dock 79 including a lot of retail space. Looks like there will be 4 buildings built (4 phases) and each will include at least 5,000 square feet of retail, the most being around 20,000 feet.


rshorn says: (1/20/16 1:44 PM)
Well this is embarrassing, I just realized that my source for the Dock 79 retail info is from none other than JDLand!! Whoopsies!


JD says: (1/20/16 1:57 PM)
@jakku, the global recession in 2008 so thoroughly clobbered financing for new condo construction that it's only started to recover in the DC area in the past few years. And there are those 100-plus Capitol Quarter condo townhouses that still got built in that era.

As for the "where is the retail?", I first invite you back into my time capsule to, say, 2005, or 2009, or 2012.

Almost every building currently under construction or planned to start within the next year has retail, and some of the buildings (especially just north of Nats Park) have a TON of retail space. Like, 60,000 sq ft in a single building. And there will also be a big ole' movie theater, and probably other "things to do," though I'd also remind you that Yards Park and Canal Park are places with things to do, as is that rather large building down South Capitol Street.

PS: I missed the JDLand anniversary! 13 years ago yesterday I took my first real batch of photos.

NavyYardGuy says: (1/20/16 2:38 PM)
Thank you for all those pictures over the years JD. I moved into the neighborhood in mid-2008 and have been lucky to have your blog as a great resource.

Now lets schedule the JD Land HH (Happy Hour) so folks can come out and mingle with libations.


JD says: (1/20/16 2:46 PM)
Thank you! Yes, I do still want to do the Happy Hour--just was really bad timing when I was talking about it in December. Though first let's see when we'll be dug out of the snow!



jdc says: (1/20/16 3:40 PM)
Wow. Those shots of NJ seem like a different city, except for the dome in the background reminding you it's DC.


walt says: (1/20/16 3:47 PM)
Happy Anniversary JD! This blog helped me decide to move here.


walt says: (1/20/16 3:56 PM)
I'm sure I'm being forgetful, but to what "condo townhouses" are you referring:?

"And there are those 100-plus Capitol Quarter condo townhouses that still got built in that era."

The lofts? Or the actual rowhomes?


JD says: (1/20/16 4:00 PM)
Sorry, yeah, shouldn't have worded it that way, was mainly meaning to underscore that the Capitol Quarter townhouses are ownership units. Condo units in high-rise buildings have been scarce (though won't be in the future), but it's not like for-sale options were completely unbuilt since 2008.


JD says: (1/21/16 11:34 AM)
Some good reading material while I'm AWOL:

Can D.C. build a $45 million park for Anacostia without pushing people out?

(on the 11th Street Bridge Park)

link



conngs0 says: (1/21/16 1:10 PM)
Great article, JD! Thanks for sharing. I also like your question. My short answer is no, DC cannot JUST build a $45 million park for Anacostia without pushing people out.

My longer answer is that, as a resident, I'd love to live in a safe and prosperous neighborhood without having to pay more than I'd pay to live in an unsafe and dilapidated neighborhood, but that's not possible. Given the rate that properties in Anacostia are appreciating, it's not unreasonable to assume that people have already been displaced at least partially as a consequence of this project and more are sure to follow. However, I totally disagree with those who would not even embark on a project like this simply because it's impossible to do it without displacing current residents.

The questions I don't have an answer for are: how much more money beyond the $45 million to build and maintain the park is the general public willing to spend to keep some people where they are? Likewise, what is the highest amount of subsidized housing that the area can handle before the incentive to develop (which brings the safety and prosperity) is taken away? Hopefully the answers to those questions intersect somewhere, and that point is what the goal for the 11th Street Bridge Park should be.


JHUGrad says: (2/5/16 1:32 PM)
FYI.... The Washington Business Journal will be making the Capitol Riverfront the first stop on it's "On the Road" series. There will be a panel discussion about the latest developments happening in the Capitol Riverfront. This is great for the neighborhood!

They're getting on the Bisnow train, I see. :-) Bisnow's session at Arena Stage last year covering both SE and SW was quite a hot ticket.
