 Page Through from Before to After

A raze permit has been approved, fences have gone up, and the two-story building at 37 L Street SE that has been home to the Empire and DC Flyer cab companies for a number of years is apparently in its final hours/days/weeks.
The site was purchased last year by DBT Development for $6.7 million, with plans for an eleven-story 74-unit building that apparently will be condos. DBT was also the developer of the condo building at 1350 Maryland Ave., NE.
I had hoped to get some renderings, but decided to stop waiting and get this post up, in case people wonder why fences are now in place.
It is a small site--less than 8,000 square feet--and does not include the WMATA Navy Yard Metro station "chiller" operations immediately to its east, on the corner of Half and L, though that site is also expected to be a residential building, by MRP Realty, if that project is still happening.
It will be interesting to see if it is demolished before October 24, which will be the 40th anniversary of the Cinema Follies fire, when a ground-floor explosion and the resulting flames blocked the exit from the 50-seat x-rated gay movie theater on the second floor, killing nine people with thick toxic smoke.

Looks like I may have a replacement for my Picard .jpg.

@JD--- not to get into a big debate about this but someone said Lil' Kim would be a much better nickname than Rocket Man.


dude says: (9/20/17 8:44 AM)
Good news I think. I just wish I could go back and time and buy that lot 20 years ago.


conngs0 says: (9/20/17 10:55 AM)
Agree it should be good news, but I'll be particularly interested to see some renderings. Looking at DBT's portfolio, it seems like this building could fill a nice niche in this neighborhood inasmuch as they apparently specialize in smaller buildings that don't necessarily feature all of the bells and whistles that result in driving up condo feeds (e.g. pools, gyms, game rooms, spas, etc.). That may seem to cut against the grain of where the apartment market is headed, but I think this model is better for the long-term health of a condo building.


Niu-Samo says: (9/20/17 12:41 PM)
Is there a neighborhood tally somewhere on condos vs. apartments? It seems the apartments far outnumber the condos.


Snacks says: (9/20/17 1:02 PM)
There are def more apts than condos.

Off the top of my head, the following are condos:
Velocity
Capitol Hill Towers (co-op)
The Bower (sales office opens this weekend)

Is that it? There are a number of condos planned, but until they break ground we probably shouldn't include them


conngs0 says: (9/20/17 2:13 PM)
10 Van might be condos too, right? link Plus West Half Street is slated to be a combination of condos and rentals (not sure of the proportions). link Thanks for the directory, JD!


GoNavy says: (9/20/17 2:39 PM)
New renderings for 11th street bridge link


JD says: (9/20/17 2:39 PM)
Let me guess--it's about a year from starting construction.

/snark



JD says: (9/20/17 2:44 PM)
Also, re: condos, I still wouldn't put stock in any "hey, yeah, sure, we're gonna do condos" pronouncements until you see a sales center.


202_cyclist says: (9/20/17 2:50 PM)
What is more likely-- me starting for the Nats next year or the 11th Street bridge? In all fairness, it would be a great amenity but I am skeptical it will be built (at least for the budget estimated).


walt says: (9/20/17 3:45 PM)
Wow, Bower is opening a sales office this weekend? They haven't even posted floorplans yet.



Snacks says: (9/20/17 5:15 PM)
My apologies if that's incorrect re: bower, I thought for sure I saw something about a sales office or reception on the 23rd. I have no links or pics to prove this.


EnvySquared says: (9/20/17 7:27 PM)
FWIW, there's a second crane up today at The Bower. I'd take a photo out my window but it's already too dark.
No idea on the sales office.


RMP says: (9/21/17 4:29 PM)
Excluding Capitol Quarter, it's easily a 90% / 10% split of rentals vs. condos even when accounting for everything in the pipeline.

I assume the second tower crane at Parcel O is for the apartment building, which is underway but not as far along as Bower. WRT Bower the signage up now says "delivering Fall 2018" which I find almost impossible to believe given the current pace and delay in opening the sales office.


walt says: (9/22/17 10:25 AM)
@Snacks -- I'll look for the sales office. Very possible they're opening early. I didn't mean to doubt your statement, merely surprise at how fast (some) things move!

The Bower is going to be one of the only buildings in the flood zone, so it seems fitting that it's the one that will be condo. Still, I'm excited to see it.


RMP says: (9/22/17 11:01 AM)
I peaked in through the window of the Bower sales office this morning and it doesn't appear close to ready, but maybe it just needs a good cleaning. Hard to tell through the small spot in the window without paper covering it. They do still have the "sales begin spring 2017" sign up across the street for good measure.


GarfieldPark says: (9/22/17 1:07 PM)
In other news, Looking on Agora - The Collective website, the timeline is now "Opening Winter 2017," FWIW. I believe that is a new one. You better believe I will outside on 12/31/17 with my stopwatch.

(oops, image URL included with this comment didn't work!)



202_cyclist says: (9/22/17 1:14 PM)
If the long-delayed 1250 Half Street had the name 'Monument Valley," we need to come up with a good name for the Park Riverside pond.


202_cyclist says: (9/22/17 1:16 PM)
I will defer to others but there is exciting restaurant news for the neighborhood.


202_cyclist says: (9/22/17 2:51 PM)
Mea culpa--- retail, not restaurant news for the neighborhood.

@walt no problem, I def am not trying to push bad/wrong info.

I was probably just wrong.
