7th at M, Looking Northwest (see more)

With the room buzzing about DC making the short list in the Amazon HQ2 season of Survivor, the Capitol Riverfront Business Improvement District celebrated its 10th anniversary at its annual meeting, in the Norfolk Southern Club at Nationals Park.
You can see the full annual report here, or page through the presentation slides, or check out "Riverfront Recaptured," a report on the neighborhood's fiscal impact on the city, which says that this year the District will break even on its $1.1 billion of public investments in the neighborhood (Nats Park, 11th Street Bridges, etc.). I grabbed the At a Glance page of the annual report so you can see the bullet points at a, you know, glance.
Mayor Bowser and Councilmember Charles Allen both spoke, and there was a panel discussion featuring Adam Gooch of Akridge, Chris Smith of WC Smith, Deborah Ratner Salzberg of Forest City, and some blogger, who also was surprised with a presentation of the BID's Community Partner award.
As for tidbits gleaned during the festivities, there's probably really only one that anyone will want to know, which is that It was whispered to me that Whole Foods is ready to roll on its buildout, except that its permits still haven't made it through the DCRA Play-Doh Fun Factory.
Meanwhile, outside the stadium gates, a new member of the Half Street Crane Farm was being birthed this morning, and the photo I took gives a hint of how much the block immediately north of Nats Park is about to change. ("Finally," some people might be saying.)
So, happy 10th to the BID, and happy almost 15th to JDLand, as it was on January 19, 2003 when I made Mr. JDLand take me on that fateful car tour so I could get some pictures of that strange, somewhat forbidding area south of the freeway.

That's a lot of good information--congrats on the award and the upcoming anniversary. A jdland meet up is overdue to celebrate!

Yes-- a JD Land birthday party/happy hour would is a great idea.

A meet-up after tomorrow’s 15th anniversary gala sounds like a great idea. (Can we take pictures with your trophy at the meet-up?)

Congratulations on your well deserved award! I think I've told you before that your blog is the reason I moved down here. Everything I send someone to this website, they tell me they signed away about 4 hours of their lives and they barely scratched the surface. Well done!!

JD-- congratulations on the award.

This morning I noticed that glass is being installed for the DC Water & Sewer Authority headquarters building. Also, construction on the Bozzuto building (Emblem) at 8th and L St, SE is moving right along.

Tower crane going up at parc Riverside part 2, which brings the crane count in JDland to 11, by my count (visible from park Chelsea's rooftop anyhow)

I feel like that's a neighborhood record?


JD says: (1/20/18 3:01 PM)
Might be a record--USDOT had I think eight of them and there were other buildings going up, but not sure there were 12 up in what would have been late 2005.

I hear that the Garrett will get its crane in the next 90 days.

I, too, was shocked at the number of cranes. We're reaching peak cranes! Everyone buy, buy, buy!
