Since January, 2003
            
 Page Through from Before to After

I wrote last week that Forest City was making its first steps into the public processes for a new 270-unit residential building on the block along 3rd Street south of Tingey known as Parcel L.
On Monday night, there was an initial presentation to ANC 6D about the project, and some renderings were shown to the assembled masses, shots of which have arrived in JDLand's inbox.
I think there is still some tweaking going on--6D was not asked to approve these specifically and there is as yet no zoning filing--but the general idea of a terraced building that would be a large focal point from the Yards Park just to the south probably won't change.
The top image, obviously, is that Yards Park view. These others are the view looking west on Water Street and then looking southeastward from Tingey Street.
Note that this building would not front Tingey Street--there are eventual plans for a hotel to be built along Tingey to the north of the residential project.
Forest City told me last week that a 2019 completion date is the target for this Parcel L project.
As for what used to stand on this site, the old Southeast Federal Center Building 159 was in residence until about 2000, long enough for me to remember it but not long enough to have photographed it with the JDLand camera. (Waaaaaaah!) However, a few years back I did uncover this photo, taken in about 1992, as part of the Library of Congress's Carol M. Highsmith archive. Building 159 is the white building directly between the DC Water Main Pumping Station and what's now the Foundry Lofts building. (You can also see two low red brick buildings fronting M Street next to Spooky Building 213 that I also didn't get to photograph, along with a little red brick annex on the north side of the still-empty Building 170 at 3rd and Tingey.) If you want to see more photos of the neighborhood taken from above in the early 1990s, check them out.

And Curbed and the other blogs will copy this in 3, 2, 1....

This building looks good.

Excellent news about the Brig. Time for another JD Land happy hour?


JD says: (6/14/16 5:55 PM)
Let's give them a week or two to settle in, but yeah, definitely.

Happy it's not a big rectangularish block. Looks good.

JD, Does "residential" equal apartments? No hope of more ownership?


JD says: (6/15/16 8:46 AM)
Sorry, I had mentioned in the previous post that it's rentals, and forgot to mention it again. Forest City doesn't do condos--that's why they've sold part of the Parcel O at 4th and Tingey to PN Hoffman, who will be doing condos there. link

I think that's a really nice looking building, viewed from south. The rest is 'meh' in terms of design and massing. I'm actually not at all digging the cladding going up on Insignia on M. Just as things settle down north of M Street (even the Whole Foods building seems to be rocketing along), south of M is picking up steam, big time.


walt says: (6/15/16 5:01 PM)
Yay, condos coming! JD, can you remind us how many of the buildings in Navy Yard (JDLand) are ownership vs. rental?


JD says: (6/15/16 5:02 PM)
Ownership:
Capitol Hill Tower (co-op)
Velocity
Capitol Quarter townhomes

Rental:
Everything else

Agree with JDC on the building. The one side, with the "stairway," looks great. The other looks bland, imo.


Brett M says: (6/16/16 2:41 PM)
Glad it's not a box, but it looks very cheap...and pretty bland on the Tingey Street side.


JD says: (6/16/16 2:52 PM)
Perhaps the "boutique hotel" eventually planned for right along Tingey Street north of this building will have a bit more oomph to it.
