Cushing at N, Looking South (see more)

I mentioned a few days ago that a sale to an unnamed buyer was pending, but it can now be said officially that the group of empty lots along 1st Street SE between K and L has been bought by Paradigm, with plans to build a 275-unit apartment building. Construction could start about a year from now, but We Shall See.
There are actually 14 individual lots facing 1st, two of which Akridge owned back before 2001 and the rest of which the company bought piecemeal in 2006 and 2008. Word had gotten out earlier this year that Akridge had put them on the market.
Old-timers will remember this stretch of 1st as the home of the Market Deli and some small auto-repair shops, which where all demolished in 2011. Here's a stroll down 1st Street Memory Lane, back to 2004:
(I'll also note that the purchase was technically made by Who's on First Properties, LLC. [I DON'T KNOW!!! THIRD BASE!!!])

Finally! Counting down till that eyesore is at least the eyesore of a construction site.

But WHAT'S ON SECOND!


202_cyclist says: (12/9/16 2:51 PM)
Thanks for the update. I also noticed there is a lot of pre-construction activity for the lot immediately south of the Parc Chelsea building.


JD says: (12/9/16 2:53 PM)
Nothing is getting built anytime soon on the lot south of the Parc Chelsea.


202_cyclist says: (12/9/16 3:49 PM)
It's unfortunate to see the NIMBYs on your Facebook page. Who'd have guessed there would be more construction in this neighborhood?


202_cyclist says: (12/9/16 3:53 PM)
Not to get into a political debate on this fine blog but considering who might be the next ambassador to Japan ( link perhaps Jayson Werth will be our next ambassador to South Korea. I mean he's hit a lot of home runs over his career, he's been a fan favorite, and his playing days are winding down. He's totally qualified to be ambassador.


Ampersand says: (12/9/16 3:58 PM)
Went down the rabbit hole on the Market Deli and was impressed to learn that its historic designation was rejected. Since when does DC reject ANYTHING from a historic designation??? I mean sure, it was a nasty run-down shack, but still! That was quite a bullet dodged. Can you imagine how long the decaying structure would have stood there otherwise? After all, the infamous Capitol Hill Shotgun House prevented development for THIRTY-ONE YEARS.

Oops-- here's the link: link

202, I'd be thrilled if Jayson Werth were named as an ambassador to any country because, despite his intentionally gruff presentation, he actually seems to be a pretty thoughtful guy, as evidenced by his fantastic interviews - link However, I'm not sure that Korea is the right place. Perhaps one of the European countries with a more storied racing history would be better. Given Werth's penchant for driving Porsches, Germany seems like a better choice. link

In all seriousness, Bobby Valentine has at least lived in Japan for a period of time, speaks the language and knows (and respects!) the customs. So... given some of the other choices the President-Elect has made for many other appointments, I'm pretty sure he could do much worse. Plus, if things go bad in Japan and our Ambassador gets kicked out, it's good to have a master of disguise to sneak back in if necessary. link

Re: lot due south of Parc Chelsea...I know you said nothing is getting built any time soon...but any idea who owns it and if there are tentative plans for it?

Also, any idea when the Whole Foods will be opening?

Thanks for all of your timely posts JD...very imformative! (I just found your site)


JD says: (12/10/16 11:48 PM)
Welcome, @murphito!

The block south of the Park Chelsea is controlled by the city, and is to eventually be a 322ish-unit mixed-income apartment building that is part of the Capper/Carrollsburg Hope VI redevelopment.

I'd say, without the slightest bit of recent actual information, that the Whole Foods is probably a year from opening. And if I'm wrong, I'm sure someone who knows the actual number will be happy to tell me. :)



Packinblackandred says: (12/11/16 9:40 PM)
Say it ain't so, JD! I was hoping the Whole Foods would open this summer so it can fuel my laziness in not walking to Harris Teeter.


DCisforLovers says: (12/12/16 9:13 AM)
Any idea of how much longer that nasty cab depot and charter school along New Jersey will last?


jdc says: (12/12/16 2:00 PM)
DCisforLovers - I can see the charter school staying, and I personally think it would be a good, diverse use of the area. However, I wonder if it could be worked into a development, where maybe it has a part of the first floor and a playground outside and then the rest of the building is apartments?


Mark says: (12/16/16 8:37 AM)
Eagle Academy Public Charter School is closing: link

"After recently learning that its leased facility in Ward 6 will be sold by the building’s owner in August 2017, the school has decided to relocate its Capitol Riverfront campus from 1017 New Jersey Avenue, SE in Ward 6 to a new facility located at 2403 Naylor Road, SE in Ward 8, effective for SY 2017-2018."


JD says: (12/16/16 1:49 PM)
@Mark -- interesting. I wonder if Paradigm is trying to buy up the entire block, or if someone else is buying the NJ Ave-facing lots.
