3rd Place at I, Looking West-Northwest (see more)

You may have noticed that it's cold.
But I managed earlier this week to squeeze in an abbreviated trek to the construction sites where recent change is the most visible. And, I have to say, by the time folks arrive in the neighborhood for Opening Day, it's just going to be a vastly different place than it was at the end of last season, even if these buildings are still quite a few months from completion.
The first shot is of the 277-unit apartment building at 82 I Street (now called ORE 82, I believe), where masonry work is speeding right along, and making that stretch of I quite the Red Brick Row.
Next, we move a few blocks to south of M Street, where the combination F1rst apartment building/Residence Inn construction is about to put an end to the Hampton Inn Grain Silo effect, illustrated here with a heavily cropped shot taken from a block away, at New Jersey and M. I'm also including an up-close shot of the spot where the apartment building and hotel converge, because the renderings haven't been all that clear in showing that there is a break above the ground floor between the two:
Next, let's take a moment to highlight the fact that Donohoe's Insignia on M 324-unit apartment building is at last truly above ground and visible, nearly a year and a half after excavation started. Here's the project as seen looking south along New Jersey from L, and looking at its M Street frontage behind the Metro station canopy:
In the Wait, Where Did That Come From All of a Sudden? category, we have the Homewood Suites at Half and M, with nine of its eleven stories almost completed, while three blocks to its north, the as-yet-unnamed 383-unit apartment project at 909 Half Street is starting to display exactly how large of a building it will be.
Finally, on the northern end of things, I'll offer a rear view of Agora, seen from 2nd Street and offering clear evidence of how the parking for the Whole Foods will be on the two floors immediately above it. (This photo is also my choice because winter sun angle and shadows make it almost impossible to get a decent shot of the New Jersey Avenue side of the building right now.) And then to wrap things up, I'll give you one hole in the ground, at Skanska's 99 M office building.
I also managed to update the before-and-after "sliders" for these locations and a few others, if you are as big a fan of those doohickeys as I am.
That's all I've got, so you'll just have to conjure up visions of the latest progress at Dock 79, Arris, the Bixby, the Capper Community Center, and 1244 South Capitol. Or go take a walk around the neighborhood yourself--just be sure to bundle up.

I enjoy my 2x weekly treks to see 82 I Street and the Agora. Definitely progress being made. The Homewood Suites at Half and M has really surprised me - I was off work for a month, and when I came back it was 3-4 floors above ground. And, being able to peer nearly daily at 909 Half St., I can attest to the fact that the building will be very substantial and block many a nice view from 1015 Half St.


Brett M says: (2/12/16 11:29 AM)
Wow! A lot of progress has been made since I last walked around the hood. Thanks, JD, for braving the cold!


JD says: (2/12/16 11:58 AM)
I do think the Homewood Suites might be trying to get open by Jan. 20, 2017, Inauguration Day. Ditto for the Residence Inn, though that looks like a tougher ask.



MJM says: (2/12/16 1:55 PM)
Homewood has a sign that says Opening Oct 2017. But we all know about opening dates....


JD says: (2/12/16 1:56 PM)
October 2017, that's insane, that a thin 11-story building would need almost 18 months after topping out.



BLT says: (2/12/16 3:50 PM)
Sign reads Oct2016


JD says: (2/12/16 3:50 PM)
Well, there you go. :)

How about a vote for most jaw-dropping project?

My visits to JDLand arrive me on the Douglass Bridge. So seeing Florida Rock recently blew me away. It will actually steal vistas but oh well.


MJM says: (2/14/16 5:55 PM)
You don't allow for edits so it will forever be 2017 :)


Maelstrom says: (2/16/16 7:13 AM)
Did anyone else catch the amazing Flying Porto-Potties in the pictures today?


202_cyclist says: (2/16/16 10:36 AM)
@Maelstrom--- yes, I always find those amusing when I see them dangling from above. It would be even funnier if someone utilized one of them for his/her morning routine and suddenly found himself aloft.


JD says: (2/16/16 9:00 PM)
For the record, I'm out of pocket this week, so probably won't be looking at/for news items closely....


JES says: (2/18/16 10:15 AM)
off topic, but when walking the dog this morning, i took the time to actually read the zoning sign for the winery site. if i'm reading it correctly, they had a zoning hearing for BOTH remaining retail pavilions. Think they'll be building both at the same time, despite not having a tenant for the middle one? makes sense from a construction perspective i guess.

JD says: (2/18/16 10:18 AM)
JES, no, the zoning stuff is just because of lot divisions, specifications in the previous order, etc.
