Cushing at L, Looking Northwest (see more)

With the Bixby now apparently targeting late fall for move-in dates*, it's time to look toward the next project in the Hope VI redevelopment of the old Capper/Carrollsburg public housing projects, and that's the 171-unit mixed-income apartment building planned for the north end of the block bounded by 2nd Place, 3rd, L, and M Streets, SE.
There had been chatter that the project (it's the one on the left side of the rendering) would get underway this summer, but alas, delays with permits and financing have pushed that date enough along the calendar that the DC Housing Authority had to file a request with the Zoning Commission for a six-month extension past what was already a two-year extension.
"Although financing has been secured for the project," the agency's letter to the ZC says, "the final building permit authorizing construction has not been issued yet, which is a condition to closing." There are also delays associated with the more wide-ranging reviews and coordination apparently inherent in being the first building to implement the shared stormwater management system that was designed as part of Canal Park.
The Zoning Commission granted the extension with almost no discussion on Monday night, probably at about the same time that ANC 6D was voting 6-0-0 to support the request. This means that Feb. 14, 2017 is now the date by which construction is required to begin.
The as-yet-unnamed building, which is currently referred to as the "Square 769N Residential project," will share the block with what is currently slated to be an office building by WC Smith. It will have 34 affordable units and about 4,000 square feet of retail that would face Canal Park and Il Parco.
This would be the fourth multi-unit building to be built as part of the Capper redevelopment, and I'll note that it is not the "Square 767" development that has had residents expressing concerns over a two-building (one condo, one affordable only) configuration. (There should be some zoning filings on that one coming Any Minute Now.)
If you are trying to envision exactly where Square 769N is, perhaps a graphic and/or sort-of-current-ish photo would be of some assistance.
* As apparently told to ANC 6D at Monday night's meeting, though I was not there to hear it with my own ears.

Great news. So sad all of those lots have sat empty for so long, when there are so many people that would love to live there, whatever income level.

I've long thought it's strange to have an entire three-block stretch of empty lots between 2nd Pl and 3rd St, so it's good that this looks like it'll get moving soon. I wonder how the feel of the neighborhood will change as those blocks develop - right now, there is open space between the townhouses and Canal Park, but eventually that opens space will be closed off with pretty large buildings.

Glad to see progress (albeit incremental and glacial) is being made. I wonder if the empty lots next to Canal Park serve as more of a barrier in the neighborhood than the planned large buildings will. Either way, I agree with jdc that it seems like a lot folks wish to live in the area, so this is a good development.

Also, the Bixby looks pretty awesome. I'll be very interested to hear the early reviews once folks start to move in.

Regarding the Bixby-- it looks like the new street between the Bixby and Van Ness elementary school is about to open onto M Street.

Any idea on when the other blocks are slated for action? It's been a long time coming!


VelocityChris says: (9/14/16 8:20 PM)
Thank God! I've been waiting for those three blocks to fill in, it will make Canal Park much more of an oasis when you can sit there and not stare at parking lots with lots of weeds growing up! It will totally change the feel for that whole area for the better.
