2nd (East) at L, Looking South (see more)

While this isn't technically a "first look" (thanks to the sign that popped up a few weeks ago), we can now get a close look at two renderings of the Garrett, the third and final apartment building at WC Smith's "Collective." It will join siblings Agora and the Park Chelsea on the block known as Square 737, and will be positioned along 2nd Street between H and I.
The renderings show the building's frontage along 2nd Street (across from the old Post Plant/200 I), first looking north from I Street (see the Park Chelsea at far left and the freeway at far right to help orient yourself) and then the reverse view south down I from H, where the edge of Agora is in the frame at far right. The design gives 2nd Street the look of three different buildings, but it will all be one.
(If you're having a hard time with the location, perhaps this photo of the current view of the Garrett's footprint, a similar angle to the first rendering, will help. It also shows how Agora does not extend all the way to 2nd Street, but that the Garrett does become slimmer on its north end.)
The Garrett will have 375 units, and will also have over 13,000 square feet of ground-floor retail (perhaps taking advantage of the proximity to Canal Park and to the 200 I Street government office building). It will also have 5,000 square feet of shared work space, a 9,500-square-foot rooftop fitness club, and even basketball, outdoor tennis, and racquetball courts.
Plus, it will have access to all of the other amenities in both the Park Chelsea and Agora as part of the Collective's sharing configuration (not to mention being steps away from the Whole Foods that will be in the ground floor of Agora).
When the Garrett's construction marks the completion of The Collective, there will be more than 1,100 residential units on this block bounded by 2nd, H, I, and New Jersey. A little different than this:

Decent looking place. Nothing really eye catching like the Park Chelsea, but it will blend in with the Agora and with ORE building.

Yeah, looks alright. Hoping for some good stuff on floor one.

Good point about the proximity to Canal Park, JD. It'll be interesting to see if/how that complex significantly changes the usage of the park. The northern end of the park doesn't seem to see a tremendous amount of traffic unless there's an event there. Likewise, it's been fantastic being able to go ice skating in the winter on a nice smooth rink that isn't crowded, but I get the feeling that the usage of that may start to increase quite a bit with all these residences coming online!

Lastly, speaking of the potential benefits of more Canal Park traffic, I made a stop to Il Parco last night for dinner. I'm not going to say the place is perfect, but since I believe it's received a few less-than-stellar reviews (and still probably suffers from the poor reputation of its predecessor), I'll just share that the two pizzas that my party had were excellent and the staff couldn't have been nicer. So there's still some potential there. If increased traffic justifies a little more staffing and creates a slightly more vibrant atmosphere, Il Parco could really turn into a solid spot.

I like the renderings of bike lanes on a big, wide 2nd St.


jdc says: (9/1/16 7:01 PM)
Il Parco is going to have to step up its game once that pizza place opens at Dock 79 with amazing views of the water....


conngs0 says: (9/1/16 11:32 PM)
Totally agree. Also, Nicoletta is allegedly going to open at some point this decade.


202_cyclist says: (9/2/16 10:18 AM)
It is surprising the retail spaces at the Yards Park aren't leased. With the hot summer we've had, a business that sold fresh fruit smoothies would probably make a million billion dollars.


jdc says: (9/2/16 12:38 PM)
@202_cyclist - yes it would have, but what about the long, slow winter months? In essence that space is good for popups only. Maybe if the ice skating rink were there, too, then it could sell warm beverages in the winter months. But overall I just don't see enough traffic to keep anything in business there.


Westnorth says: (9/2/16 1:29 PM)
Garrett, Agora, and Park Chelsea form The Collective? That's like naming three kids Zohrab, Ambroisine, and Sven.* I completely understand hiring different architects for the buildings, but hiring different marketing consultants probably wasn't necessary.

* three UN Permanent Representatives


Ampersand says: (9/2/16 3:56 PM)
Westnorth - Those are some pretty great names, actually. Now that you posted this, the Van Ness Elementary 2022 Kindergarten class is going to have to use last initials to differentiate Ambroisine G. and Ambroisine M.


kalicki says: (9/2/16 4:35 PM)
@202_cyclist Similarly, I wonder if the retail spaces at the stadium on 1st Street will ever get leased out


Chaifetz10 says: (9/2/16 7:27 PM)
Are those retail spaces?! I've walked along that side walk twice a day for the past week and every time I pass by I wonder why it's so bland and closed off. It's just a barren valley at the moment. I would hope that once more residential is built across the street that they use the stadium space for additional retail.

CRITICAL INFORMATION---- George Clinton is playing for free at Canal Park tomorrow evening as part of a day-long concert.


202_cyclist says: (9/9/16 10:53 AM)
We want the funk!

George Clinton will be performing at 5:45 PM.

Signage outside Chix is up! Pretty spiffy looking. A coworker has someone for an estimated opening date, and he said about 8 more weeks. So, late October....


JD says: (9/10/16 12:04 AM)
Yes, I tweeted out the Chix sign on Monday. (below)

I don't think it's 8 weeks away. Might be eight days away. They said they are shooting for "the 12th" on Twitter, and I think that had more of a days-than-weeks feel to it.



JD says: (9/10/16 10:06 AM)
Also, as always, I'm here reading, just not getting any big news to write about and not doing much digging. But know that Mr. JDLand is actually doing pretty well. He was so sick before starting chemo, but now after five infusions he's doing much better (go figure), and has almost no side effects. So my time is better spent hanging out with him, enjoying life that has its moments of seeming "normal." In other words, this is good JDLand ignoring time, not bad. :)



CJBabyDaddy says: (9/10/16 10:15 AM)
Here's to more and more moments of "seeming 'normal.'"


CJBabyDaddy says: (9/10/16 10:17 AM)
Darn my luck. A heart emoji morphed into two question marks.


JD says: (9/10/16 10:20 AM)
I'll fix. It's the thought that counts!

(No keyboard emoji here, alas.)


202_cyclist says: (9/10/16 12:24 PM)
One update for the Congrssional Square site at 1st and I St, SE-- I saw people surveying the site this week.


202_cyclist says: (9/10/16 12:25 PM)
Also, excellent news about Mr. JD Land. We are wishing him the best.


Sally M says: (9/10/16 1:51 PM)
Lovely news about Mr. JDLand. By all means, enjoy each other. Finding you in the comments section is fine.


BLT says: (9/10/16 9:01 PM)
Excellent news JD! As always, wishing you both the best!!
