From the Capitol Yards listserve. This meeting is tonight. Since Jason Chaffetz is so hot and bothered to get involved in local DC issues, hopefully we can ask the Congressman from Utah some questions about the upcoming construction at this meeting.
"Additionally, our neighborhood ANC commissioner, Meredith Fascett, is hosting a community meeting tomorrow evening to discuss the “2 I St. SE” construction phases. The meeting will be held in the Club Room at 70 Capitol Yards starting at 6:30 PM. Please see the attached flyer from Meredith for more details. We encourage each of you to participate!"

Oh, and 3rd and Virginia is reopened, per Meredith Fascett.

Excellent news for the Salt Line. Maybe when Bryce Harper gets his $400M contract, we can get him to be an investor in the second phase of the D.C. streetcar.

Who wants to help purchase this an put it in one of the remaining empty lots?link

I've actually slid down that exact slide (not joking, we moved to DC from St. Louis)... we can find a better one. Love the idea, but this particular slide is not worth the money.

Am I crazy or does the google earth image of Nationals Park show an ice rink? The photo was taken in 2017, and the time stamp is correct based on construction in the area.
says: (2/8/17 1:35 PM)
I couldn't find the timestamp on my browser, but the google earth view of Nats Park looks a lot like the setup for the Winter Classic from January 1, 2015. link
That said, it's possible that one of the 2017 concerts used a similar staging setup?
says: (2/8/17 3:00 PM)
Definitely from 2015 as Dock79 is still an empty dirt lot in that image.

Ah I was distracted by the projects on M St. I was hoping I could go ice skating in the stadium but I guess not...

Fencing went up today around the JBG lot on Half.

Re: JBG, I don't see the excavation permits as being approved yet, but early spring is when big new holes tend to sprout. :)

Took this photo of all of the banners for the upcoming restaurants on 1st Street.

The sidewalks surrounding One Hill South are now open. It is nice to be able to use them and not have to walk in the streets. It is also nice to see the neighborhood gain a couple more bike racks.

Thanks for the heads up on Five Guys! I can't say that my waistline suffered from their temporary closure though....

Another blog has a post about a new development in our neighborhood but I will hold off posting in deference to our erstwhile blogger.
Also demolition of the McDonalds continues apace this morning!

I also appreciate your making the effort to be sure I know every day how I'm failing.... :-(

This is what 202 is referencing: The first look at the hotel part of the Yards Parcel L, on the southwest corner of 3rd and Tingey:
My stuff on Parcel L, to refresh your memory:

Absolutely no need to apologize JD! 1) Family always comes first and 2) You've done a kick a-- job with this site as is.

it takes soooo much more than simply having a pulse on breaking news to run a good blog. the best blogs IMO have a hint of the writers personality in the articles. and of course that personality has to have SOME captivating trait; funny, sarcastic, cheery, etc. nothing worse than reading a boring article about an interesting subject. in other words - not everyone can run a blog. we don't just read JDland for the news. the news is everywhere

Amen Chaifetz10 and SWag. JD is the heart of JDLand.

Another hotel, eh? I really am amazed they yet another is in the pipeline.

And here's a story 202 missed, about 1333 M looking for a PUD extension, because, shocker, they're having a hard time getting financing:

Glad to have another hotel down here. And I loved the idea that the restaurant can expand into the hotel conference space.
But another building with no parking. Even though I live here, I have to admit I think the fact that there is so little parking is affecting normal everyday people from popping in down at the Yards.

To view the most recent Google Maps photo of the DC Area (taken sometime in December 2016) you will need to turn off the 3-D view under the map options. Google Maps defaults to the new 3-D view. For DC, the 3-D view photo was taken December 2015 (hence why the hockey rink is in Nats Park).

@JD, et al:
I didn't mean to upset anyone and I appreciate the care you are providing.
I recall this from the post above:
"In the meantime, though, the high-quality JDLand commentariat is doing a great job of keeping an eye on things, so keep checking in the comments for tidbits."
says: (2/14/17 5:52 PM)
While we are on it...202...your use of the word 'erstwhile' while referring to JD's blogging is, in my opinion, like taking a knife and twisting it. Unnecessary.
says: (2/15/17 7:31 AM)
Me a culpa, I got the definition wrong.
says: (2/15/17 7:51 AM)
@JD-- I meant something more along the lines of formidable. Apologies for any hard feelings.
says: (2/15/17 9:23 AM)
Touching on the issue with 1333 M, here is a story about commercial space in SW potentially transitioning to residential. link
