2nd (Mid) at Tingey, Looking East (see more)

Some brief items while I continue to be more or less on sabbatical:
* 1ST AND K SLIVER? Urban Turf reports that the owner of garage on the northeast corner of 1st and K has finally sold his lot, and a developer is planning a 12-story 34-unit residential building. Urban Turf has a rendering, but I prefer looking back to December 2004, right after the garage building was rehabbed and opened as A1 Tires. JPI attempted to buy the site back when planning 909 New Jersey, but the owner was, shall we say, not interested. (The expletives still ring in my ear from when I asked him about it a decade ago.)
* YARDS PARK KIOSKS: With the return finally of the approved building permits feed, I was able to report in the comments a few days ago that the construction visible in the kiosks along the boardwalk at the Yards Park were for ventures from the owners of Lumber Shed tenants Due South and Osteria Morini (along with what I believe is office space for the marina). I posted last year about the possibility of "Due South Dockside," but Eater has now reported that the Morini kiosk is not going to be the long-ago announced pizza joint Nicoletta, but a "summer sister spot" for Morini that could open late this summer. "Details about the offshoot are limited, but expect a bar serving draft beer and wine, as well as a pared-down menu of what’s available at the flagship restaurant. That includes made-to-order salads, the New York-transplant’s iconic meatballs, and simple desserts," Eater says.
* FED WAREHOUSE: Another twist in the long-running saga of the warehouse at 49 L Street: There is now a sign up announcing that the site is up for sale, and a commenter found the GSA listing.There was talk a few years back of this building being traded to the city, but that apparently is not coming to pass. (Nor apparently did the city choose it as the site of a homeless shelter.) And once upon a time a group of residents wanted it to become the Half Street Market.
* ROSE PT: The BID Newsletter reports that Rose Physical Therapy Group is now open in the ground floor of 1015 Half Street.
* ROOFING: The first "roof cap" on the rebuilt original Virginia Avenue Tunnel was pored last week, in the 200 block of Virginia Avenue. It seems odd to say these words, but the project is expected to be completed next year. (Time flies.)
* YOU'RE AN ALL STAR: The preparations and publicity for the 2018 MLB All-Star Game at Nats Park are now underway, with the unveiling of the logo and also information on how one might actually procure tickets.

Wonder if the building next to 909 will be Condos or Apartments? Even with all the new apartments that have started leasing it doesn't seem like the rents have come down. With all the upgraded amenities the average rent for a 1BR seems to have actually gone up.


202_cyclist says: (7/28/17 12:03 PM)
"summer sister spot" -- say that 10X fast.


JES says: (7/28/17 12:08 PM)
So those kiosks are obviously going to serve alcohol, so that begs the question, how far onto the boardwalk are patrons going to be allowed to stand/sit to drink it? Where will the boundaries be, I wonder?


RMP says: (7/28/17 2:14 PM)
Anyone want to guess when work is going to start on Parcel L? The parking lot has been closed for a while now and there are no signs that anything is happening over there.

I took a peak inside District Winery last weekend when they had the doors open for a potential wedding client who was seeing the place. Looking good!


jdc says: (7/28/17 3:54 PM)
Clicked on the link to the GSA website - I forgot how there had been that desolate parking lot fronting M Street. I have gotten so used to the hotel being there already.


malatesta says: (7/29/17 10:09 PM)
A couple of things I noticed today walking around:

- Taylor Gourmet and district winery both have signs up. Like RMP, I saw a wedding party (I assume) taking a hard hat tour.

- Chloe has an alcohol license notice up. Shilling canning does as well, although it looks like it's been up for a while and I just didn't notice. Chloe is on the corner of Fourth and tingey, shilling is on water on the alley corner of Arris (in my mind, I had thought they were both going to be on the water st side.)


NavyYardNittany says: (7/30/17 2:24 PM)
Anyone here anything about Anne's Wigs? Looks to be closed - no activity, grass growing up - but haven't heard anything about a sale.


NavyYardNittany says: (7/30/17 2:24 PM)
*hear. Darned iPhone keyboard.

The BID spoke to our building a couple weeks ago. A couple comments some might find interesting if you haven't already heard:

1) Whole Foods can't take over their space until an approximately 1 foot grade disparity is fixed (in the progress). After that ground work is done and they get access to their space, should be about 6 months till opening.

2) The BID is going to put on some special 10-year anniversary parties, including a video that will feature JDLand images, do I remember that correctly?

3) The movie theater and surrounding buildings are completely at the beckon call of DC Water and their slow progress. The senior official the BID president spoke to didn't seem to be in much of a rush, ugg!

4) The BID is already very concerned about how self-driving cars will be a game changer for parking 10 years from now (making many parking spots obsolete as fewer and fewer own cars).

5) The BID is working with the Southwest BID to see about Circulator route changes. One proposed change is shifting the current Navy Yard route to go over to SW Marina and connect to L'Enfant but it would terminate at Eastern Market (not go up to Union Station) if I remember correctly.

Sorry, I should have written these down a couple weeks ago right after the meeting. If I got any of the details wrong my apologies.


VelocityChris says: (7/30/17 4:52 PM)
Also, the homeless shelter came up and the BID president said that a few area developers had their high powered lawyers write up a letter that the city had broken some rules/laws in how they'd handled that process which seemed to freak out the city and put things at a standstill. But the BID president and several area developers toured some similar sites around the city that DC was hoping to use as a model and all involved seemed to be less concerned (strong implication being that things might continue moving forward for some kind of "transitional housing"). Anyway, considering the GSA "For Sale" signs that recently went up, I'm guessing they came as a surprise to the BID as nothing was mentioned a couple weeks ago.


JD says: (7/30/17 8:40 PM)
As to #2, there have been early discussions about my "partnering" with the BID in terms of my "before" photos. They will be a hot commodity for the next year or so!


RMP says: (7/31/17 10:10 AM)
@malatesta - The ABRA notice for Chloe went up sometime in the past week. The notice for Shilling has been up since April. One thing I noted when it was first posted is that Shilling is asking for "live entertainment on premise" as part of their license, Chloe is not. I'm not sure what that means exactly or how that's going to work out in a residential building. There were three "pop up concerts" in the vacant soon-to-be Chloe space during the 2016 JazzFest and it was pretty unbearable to be above those when they were happening. Fortunately that was a one-off thing.

A 12-story building at the A-1 tires spot isn't going to do wonders for 909 CY residents looking for some early afternoon sun on the 2nd floor pool deck.

@jh_105 lol

As to #2, JD:

Settle for nothing less than --

(1) a free luxury waterfront penthouse in the building that will eventually occupy Parcel Q; and

(2) the renaming of the Capitol Waterfront neighborhood to something like "Dupreeville" or "JDLandria."

JD says: (8/1/17 11:44 AM)
(though I'm not sure what they think is going to be constructed on that little triangular park across the street)


JD says: (8/1/17 11:47 AM)

202_cyclist says: (8/1/17 12:54 PM)
JD-- thank you for posting. I was thinking of that orphan triangular park this morning as I ran past it. With the apartments across from the Brig and with 816 Potomac Ave, hopefully it creates some momentum to improve that park, which consists mostly of some overgrown grass, dog poop, and a few trees. I know that not every bit of open space needs to be an award-winning park, but the site currently doesn't offer too much.


CJBabyDaddy says: (8/1/17 1:28 PM)
RMP: Your post apparently lit a fire under someone. The Parcel L parking lot asphalt demolition is now underway.


JD says: (8/1/17 4:21 PM)
In other news, those picnic benches at 1st and N (where the F1rst sales trailer was) are apparently for the return of the pop-up Rocklands BBQ offering on Nats game days.


202_cyclist says: (8/2/17 11:00 AM)
IMPORTANT UPDATE! We welcome a new tower crane to the neighborhood this morning, as a crane is being installed for the residential development across the street from Canal Park.


jdc says: (8/2/17 1:03 PM)
Walking the border of JDland, and it amazes me how the area around the Bower and District Winery will soon go from a pretty empty area to one teeming with activity.
