4th at L, Looking Northwest (see more)

Not much to report these days, but instead of digging digging digging looking for teeny tiny stuff to pass along, the reaction of someone who's been doing this way too long is "Hey! Extended vacation!" But here's a few items:
* PARC RIVERSIDE PHASE 2: These are "studies", with materials and colors subject to change, but the architects for the second phase of Toll Brothers' Parc Riverside apartments at Half and K passed along to ANC 6D02 commissioner Stacy Cloyd some images of what the building could look like. (And now you see why when I mentioned them in another post recently I said that Phase 2 doesn't look very different from Phase 1.) The middle image, as seen from Half and I, shows the two Parc Riversideseseses as one long facade, albeit with slightly altered treatments. The other two are views from Half and L.
* REHAB CENTER PROPOSED ON LOWER 8TH: Capitol Hill Corner reports on a proposal to the Bureau of Prisons for a 300-bed resident rehabilitation center (aka "halfway house") to be located at 810 Potomac Ave., SE, across the street from both the Blue Castle and the historic Latrobe Gate to the Navy Yard. Council member Charles Allen and ANC 6B both have weighed in with strong opposition, listing all manner of reasons that this building at the corner of 8th and Potomac (and 8th and M, for that matter) "is not the right site," with 6B commissioner Kirsten Oldenburg quoted as saying, "This is an egregious thing to do to lower 8th, which is transitioning from being under-developed into a residential neighborhood." UPDATE: ANC 6D commissioner Meredith Fascett has posted on Facebook that she is opposing this as well, and says that MPD, Barracks Row Main Street, and the Capitol Riverfront BID are also in opposition.
* COFFEE WITH CHUCK SLIDES: If you want the latest update from the Virginia Avenue Tunnel, here's the slides from the May 18th neighborhood session. There's lots of photos of sections the new tunnel, including some that bloggers would probably be shot on sight for trying to get.
And, an addition a few hours later:
* AKRIDGE SELLING: WBJ says that Akridge is putting on the market its holdings along the east side of 1st Street between K and L, across from Velocity and the Parc Riverside and home until 2011 to the Market Deli and a slew of other now-gone buildings.

Fingers crossed the tunnel project continues to go ahead smoothly. This is such an important project and I am very glad it's moving ahead.


JD says: (5/25/16 2:57 PM)
Yup, I am testing here. That is what I am doing.



JD says: (5/25/16 3:13 PM)
Okay, so you should now be able to include one jpg or gif or png with a comment, but be aware that any even remotely icky uses of this option will result in either suspension or a permanent ban from comments, along with my turning off the option for everyone.

So, enjoy! :-)

Here's another tidbit (added to the post): Akridge is selling the former Market Deli site, on the east side of 1st across from Velocity and the Parc Riverside:

Shocked that "Mother Hen Sitting on Her Eggs Akridge" is finally selling the land. They swooped in and bought all that land and never developed it. Just wish some other companies bought that land a decade ago because it probably would have been developed by now.


JD says: (5/25/16 6:09 PM)
@MJM, I did think you of as soon as I saw the news.

I also thought of the Market Deli kittens. And the proposed historic landmarking.



jdc says: (5/26/16 8:49 AM)
I am SO thrilled about the news of that sale. I walk past this disgusting piece of land often (along with what will be Parc 2) and development here cannot come fast enough. Now, if only that cab dispatch would relocate.


MJM says: (5/26/16 9:49 AM)
I'm using the bricks from the old buildings in the community garden - making some use of it. Does that make the garden historic?


NavyYardGuy says: (5/26/16 10:49 AM)
@jdc I wouldnt say it was disgusting..but underdeveloped. Glad that parcel is being sold.

@ JD any update on when the community center will be opening? It looks pretty ready to go..

The winds of development continue to blow in Capitol Riverfront/Navy Yard...


JD says: (5/26/16 10:52 AM)
Nope, not letting politics come in here, @NavyYardGuy. I've deleted the pic, and consider it a warning.

(And I thought my admonishment/warning was too harsh yesterday. Guess not!)




NavyYardGuy says: (5/26/16 11:35 AM)
Understood JD.



JD says: (5/26/16 11:35 AM)
As for the community center, it's not a matter of construction at this point, it's the city getting its operational ducks in a row.


JD says: (5/26/16 11:37 AM)
@NYG, success!

And I do apologize for reacting too harshly in tone. A life-long affliction.



JHUGrad says: (5/26/16 11:54 AM)
Does anyone know who will operate the Community Center? Will they offer daycare?


JD says: (5/26/16 12:01 PM)
Those are the things still awaiting the DC government to officially get all ducks in a row over.


JES says: (5/26/16 12:16 PM)
Well, it's gotta be at least partially open by democratic primary day, cuz we got postcards in the mail telling us that the community center is the new polling place.


jdc says: (5/26/16 2:27 PM)
I meant disgusting in the sense that the area, at least to me, smells of dog urine/feces, and rotting straw. So, yes, disgusting (to me).
