1st at M, Looking West-Northwest (see more)

A few things in advance of this week's big event, the Nats home opener (more on that to come):
* 1000 1ST, FOR REAL: As much as I liked coming up with my own vision for the lot on the east side of 1st between K and L, Paradigm has now graciously passed along the actual rendering for the 275-unit residential project that is now in the early stages of excavation. Note that the purple portions of the rendering are lights that will rotate through different colors.
* EIGHTEEN EIGHT DEAD: There have been inquiries from readers lately about the status of the "fine men's salon" that was supposed to be coming to Tingey Street at the Foundry Lofts, and now commenter NavyYahd has passed along this link to the company's web site, saying that "18|8 Navy Yard will no longer be opening in Washington, D.C." So, when you still see lots of scruffy dudes around the neighborhood, that's probably why.
* DOUGLASS BRIDGE DESIGN THUMBS UP: The actual meeting isn't until Thursday, but the National Capital Planning Commission's staff is recommending approval of the design of the new Frederick Douglass Bridge. If this bridge is of interest to you and you are hankering for more details, I suggest paging through the city's submittal for this latest review, along with the voluminous staff recommendation. I grabbed some images from the submittal and have added them to my project page, but wanted to highlight these two, showing what the side paths and overlooks on both sides of the bridge will look like, along with what the view up South Capitol from the planned traffic oval at Potomac Avenue might look like. Pre-construction work is already underway for this project, which includes not only the bridge and two ovals but also the reconstruction of the Suitland Parkway interchange.
* ANACOSTIA RISING: Local radio station WAMU has posted Anacostia Rising, an in-depth look at "The River Washington Forgot." Sometimes labeled one of the most polluted rivers in the United States, this multimedia offering looks at how DC is "rediscovering the long-neglected waterway," and what that means for the neighborhoods along the river. (So maybe this is a good spot to also mention last week's opening of the Anacostia River tunnel leg of DC Water's massive Clean Rivers Project.) And mark your calendars for the fourth annual Anacostia River Festival, on Sunday, April 15, from 1 to 5 pm.
* OFFICIALLY ALL-PURPOSE: Today is the official opening date for All-Purpose Pizzeria, on the river in the ground floor of Dock 79, at 79 Potomac Ave., SE. Hours are from 4 to 10 pm Sunday through Thursday, and 4 to 11 pm Fridays and Saturdays. Here's the dinner menu, and here's a sneak peek from the Hungry Lobbyist.

re: 18|8 - Interesting, I had wondered how a place like that might do in our neighborhood. I guess we'll never know.

What type of retail do people hope goes into that spot? Personally i wouldn't mind seeing a barber or something in there. I like Bang just fine but it's kind of pricey for the type of haircut i get (ie short, 1 on the side with a trim on top, def nothing stylish).

Thank you for the updates. Speaking of scruffy dudes, Jayson Werth signed a minor league contract with the Mariners last week. I would have thought he would want to call it a career after nearly two decades in the major leagues.

@Snacks--- I have clippers if you want to borrow them and give yourself a haircut!


202_cyclist says: (4/3/18 11:41 AM)
Speaking of the Anacostia-- come out on the morning of Saturday, April 14 (hopefully it won't be snowing) and help clean up the mighty Anacostia.

I think there are also river clean-up events the following weekend as part of Earth Day.


Ampersand says: (4/3/18 12:18 PM)
It makes me very sad and angry that after all these years, the #$&@*$# traffic ovals didn't go away. Yes, what the riverfronts really need are even MORE lanes of high-speed vehicles. UGHHHH. They seem to think that the ovals are going to be this high-use space, but it's necessary to cross 5-6 lanes of uncontrolled traffic, most of which is driving on wide open roads that appear to have 40+ mph design speeds. Look at the south side oval - combining the northbound and southbound sides, there are EIGHT LANES OF CAR TRAFFIC. WHY ARE THERE SO MANY LANES??????

This road design is a disgusting travesty. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO



Ampersand says: (4/3/18 12:22 PM)
I mean, what are you even supposed to do here????? Is this even a valid road design?????????



202_cyclist says: (4/3/18 12:55 PM)
When I was running this morning, I noticed two fish (I think a shad and a blue gill) that beached themselves or lost a game of Marco Polo on the deck next to Morini Piccolo. Maybe these will be the catch-of-the-day for Morini Piccolo's opening this weekend!


bdj says: (4/3/18 2:25 PM)
@Snacks - would love to see a Hair Cuttery (or local shop with similar pricing) go into the neighborhood! I get basically the same haircut, and don't want to spend more than $20 on it.


jdc says: (4/3/18 3:09 PM)
I would also love an inexpensive barber shop along the lines of Hair Cuttery. Also, how about a Dunkin donuts in the old chix location?


JD says: (4/3/18 3:47 PM)
A little preview here from Declaration about their 1st Street outpost, opening Thursday:

malatesta says: (4/3/18 7:56 PM)
So we'll have enough pizza places open by this summer to do an (extremely bad idea) neighborhood pizza crawl, right?


jdc says: (4/4/18 10:56 AM)
Hey JD - looking at the development map, aren't there supposed to be two distinct squares, one for the WMATA chiller site and then the separate lot next to it (formerly the taxi depot)? Right now the Chiller site square overlaps both (at least on Chrome).


Packinblackandred says: (4/4/18 11:00 AM)
It looks like actual work started on Square 696 this morning--they have a bunch of gravel and workers using construction equipment.


JD says: (4/5/18 7:36 AM)
@jdc, yes, thanks, I will fix that.
