Since January, 2003

7th at K, Looking West (see more)

The blistering pace of new projects slowed a bit this year, allowing me some (needed) breathing space in terms of keeping up with construction progress. But I wandered around on Saturday, and here's a few things of note I saw:
* The JBG apartment project now known as 1221 Van is speeding along, and has changed the skyline along South Capitol considerably. Taking southward-facing photos in the winter months is always dicey, but I couldn't pass up a shot of the new structure and its neighbor directly to the south.
* Insignia on M's logo at the top of its New Jersey Avenue face does easily catch one's eye.
* The preparation work to transform the O Street Pumping Station into the glimmery new DC Water Headquarters is now underway.
* CSX announced this week that the new second-track Virginia Avenue Tunnel is "nearing completion," and it certainly looks that way at the western mouth of both new and old tunnels. And I got to see a train coming out, too! (But the project isn't over--next work will shift to reconstructing the 100-year-old original tunnel.)
* The excavation for the combination condo-and-rental buildings project known as "Parcel O" at the Yards has proceeded apace.
* Conversely, the hole for the 99 M office building has remained basically unchanged since late summer. (Compare the below photo to this one taken in August.) There was a new crane-related after-hours permit approved for the site last week, so maybe things are about to start moving again. UPDATE, 12/13: A representative for the 99 M project has gotten in touch with me to say that there has actually been considerable "complex" work going on at the site, it's just that it's mostly underground/out of sight.

I like the look of Insomnia...

The pace of 99 M has definitely surprised me, compared to the speed of the hotel and projects also on 1st. Is it because of the massive hole that needed to be dug and shored up?


JD says: (12/13/16 9:20 AM)
As I mentioned in the post, it's not a slow pace--it's been stopped altogether since August. Given that it is right next to the Metro station, and that there are huge steel thingamabobs holding up the western and southern walls, there must be some issues with the shoring that they have been having to come up with a solution for.

Perhaps because 1221 Van is out on its own along So. Capitol Street, it appears to be pretty big when viewed from a distance.

Also, I noticed that Dock 79 has a dog park. Is this only for residents of that building? Since we don't have a dog, I haven't paid attention to any previous discussion of that.

Perhaps the "complex" work taking place underground that 99 M is referring to SafeTrack?


202_cyclist says: (12/13/16 12:53 PM)
@JD: Maybe 99M is building the secret tunnels....

Now that the trailers are gone and McDonald's is closing, do you have any sense of when construction will start on these projects or on "Monument Valley"?


JD says: (12/13/16 1:28 PM)
There are excavation and/or foundation permits in process for the empty part of the Fairgrounds, and Monument Valley, and the NAB HQ/10 Van joint project, and the McD's project, and the Capper apt bldg at 2nd and L, and the second phase of the Parc Riverside. Those are all the ones I expect to get started in coming months, though of course something can always derail plans. But those are the ones that really seem to be planning to roll once they get their permits.

4th & Tingey: Billboard for The Bower is up, promoting sales to begin Spring 2017.
