Cushing at M, Looking West (see more)

I am, shall we say, a bit distracted these days, and so have been taking full advantage of that whole "I'm only going to post when I feel like it" pledge from a few months back. (And I still need to write a longer post on news of Greystar's plans on the CSX land west of New Jersey, but there's only so much blogging blood that can come out of this stone right now.)
Most of these items will sound familiar to the commentariat, but for those who haven't been following the conversation:
* LULULEMON COMING: Yoga pants and other accoutrements will be coming to the Boilermaker Shops on Tingey Street in the Yards, according to the company's web site. It will move into the space vacated by Steadfast Supply's move to Water Street.
* SOMEWHERE COMING: "Somewhere", an "intergrated retail and cafe concept" from folks on the team that created Maketto on H Street will be coming to F1rst in 2019. The press release says it will combine "a highly curated retail mix of high end clothing, sneakers and other footwear, unique brand products, as well as planning and orchestrating community events. The team will also develop programming for the residents of F1RST, including interactive social media opportunities, style consultations and more."
* RETAIL INDUSTRY COMING, SORT OF: WBJ reports that the Retail Industry Leaders Association has agreed to lease nearly 13,000 square feet at 99 M.
* MODERN NAIL BAR ARRIVES: New signage for "Modern Nail Bar" has appeared above the corner space at the Courtyard Marriott at New Jersey and L. I have not poked my nose in, so I do not know if this is one of those newfangled places where they ply you with alcohol while clipping and coating the tips of your digits. (h/t @202FSUNole)
* HALF STREET WAREHOUSE HALF GOING: Partial demolition is underway on the red brick former GSA warehouse on the southeast corner of Half and L, which was purchased by the Lerner Companies last year. According to the permit, they are taking off the roof and the top part of the walls, down to a height of about four feet. What's the plan? An "open uncovered parking lot," according to the permit.
* JUSTIN'S GONE: After eight years, Justin's Cafe has closed its doors. (h/t reader JES)

It appears the build out for Shilling Canning has also just begun.


Ampersand says: (11/5/18 5:09 PM)
That Justin's opening day link has pretty funny comments, looking back with eight years' perspective. Justin's had very mixed reviews, although everyone agreed that the SW Waterfront Safeway was amazing.

Modern Nail Bar doesn't do anything for me. Such a waste of a corner with outside seating. I was saying it would be much better if Modern Nail Bar was a construction-themed bar for all of the construction workers in the neighborhood. They could serve drinks like the Jackhammer.


202_cyclist says: (11/5/18 5:21 PM)
@Ampersand-- Indeed, 2010 was such a simpler time.

Also, this: "new and improved Safeway at Fourth and M, SW."

Jajajajajajajajajajajajajaja! It's only been open for eight years and that store is incredibly depressing.


dude says: (11/6/18 8:51 AM)
Wow! "including interactive social media opportunities." Sign me up!


JD says: (11/6/18 10:44 PM)
In local local local election results, ANC 6D07 (Meredith Fascett's open seat) has been won by Edward Daniels, while in 6D02 Anna Forgie clobbered incumbent Cara Lee Shockley.



RMP says: (11/6/18 11:23 PM)
Brandt Miller got the endorsements from Meredith herself and GGWash. Both made him out to be the obvious best choice. However I barely saw any evidence he was running aside from a few small signs. Edward, on the other hand, had signs up everywhere with his picture on them so I can see how he had the name recognition in the voting booth. Edward's platform makes it seem like his top priority is parking which I personally find pretty disappointing. I hope he doesn't lose focus of the many other important issues around here.


RDC says: (11/7/18 12:23 PM)
@RMP, I agree. I was surprised by the high turnout (85%+!) for 6D07, which makes me think a sizable portion of those voters may not have known anything about the GGWash or incumbent endorsements.


Hcl16 says: (11/7/18 12:43 PM)
I saw the GGW endorsement but went with Edward Daniels instead. As a house dweller, I really don’t agree with Edward’s hope to open up street permit parking for apartment folks but he actually came around and introduced himself to us and asked what issues we were concerned about etc. Brandt never did that — all we got was a flyer stuck in the door and we were home at the time, would’ve opened the door and talked to him had he (or his representative) knocked!


RMP says: (11/7/18 2:35 PM)
Well as a non-driver I don't really feel like my rep's time and energy is well spent on an unrealistic pursuit like getting everyone with cars access to free street parking. I mean, I get it, paying $200+ per month per car sucks and if you ask anyone if they'd like to trade their garage parking space for effectively free street parking of course a lot of them are going to say yes. The problem is that it's not realistic in a high density neighborhood like ours.

I did a back of the envelop and figure than once the Parcel O and L buildouts are done, the Yards phase 1 area will have a little over 1,300 housing units in 6 buildings. The streets around that area (from NJ to 5th south of M) maybe have space for 200-250 cars. Even if you assume a third of households have zero cars and the rest has just one, the math doesn't work. It's not like those streets are empty right now.

Anyway, I haven't gotten to meet Edward yet and hopefully will soon. It sounds like he's open to hearing everyone's concerns. With ANC of course it's very good to have someone who is engaged in the community since it's the kind of position that's easy to phone it in if you want to.


willinrm says: (11/8/18 8:32 AM)
i second that, (without the math), just looking at it logically, there is already 0 parking without letting apartment owners have street parking, how in the world would that be feasible??? (maybe rezoning could help?)

Fingers crossed he focuses on some realistic and more problematic issues, like increased police in the area / crime / dcha issues (and those they contract out to).


Westnorth says: (11/8/18 2:57 PM)
Not to mention that local retailers do have a legitimate reason to want at least some access to short-term street parking.


JD says: (11/8/18 9:17 PM)
By the way, I've always said I want no part of elective office, but I've decided that my calling is running the board of elections. I could definitely make the train run on time, so to speak.


Sally M says: (11/9/18 8:39 AM)
JD, if you run the board of elections, I promise to sign up as volunteer! My precinct is always staffed by a cheerily resolute band of seniors, but it's a crazy long day, and they're enthusiastic about the idea of some younger assitance.


Bruce says: (11/9/18 9:09 PM)
I saw the endorsements and voted for Edwards.


202_cyclist says: (11/10/18 2:52 PM)
It looks like all of the CSX construction equipment has been cleared from the lot that Greystar purchased. Does this suggest construction might begin soon?


VelocityChris says: (11/10/18 3:36 PM)
Anyone heard any updates on the Hatoba ramen place that's going into the 100 Montaditos old location?


JD says: (11/10/18 3:38 PM)
@202, they say they are "nearing the end." But I'm also guessing the sale of your property went through.

@Chris, Hatoba's liquor license application was just posted in the Register.

Niu-Samo says: (11/16/18 4:58 PM)
Regarding the parking conversation. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the issue is street parking south of M Street which is all metered, and Mr. Daniels wants the city to allow renters of apartment units in that area (presumably including himself) to have "the chance to avoid the high cost of garaged parking" by parking at certain (25%) metered locations which would become zone 6 exempt. It's just too expensive to park in the apartment garage so the proposal is to take away parking that is intended for patrons of the restaurants and businesses, and give it to renters of nearby apartments. If I understand all this correctly, then can I just say 1) I can't believe this ranks within the top 100 issues facing the neighborhood, 2) parking is just expensive in DC, whether you're a renter or an owner, that's a fact of life, ask any condo owner who paid $40,000 extra for their parking space, or for townhomes with a garage, those doesn't come cheap either; 3) it seems to me that the scant street parking in the baseball district should be made available to the patrons of businesses in that area, regardless of whether or not it is baseball season.


CJBabyDaddy says: (11/16/18 10:18 PM)
@ Niu-Samo: Preach.


RMP says: (11/16/18 11:42 PM)
@Niu-Samo Yes, you are correct. Street parking south of M is metered and at least in the Yards area, pretty much always at or near capacity. I don't have any reason to believe DDOT would ever think giving everyone in the multi-family buildings Zone 6 permits and letting them park at meters for free will actually happen or solve any alleged problems. The bigger thing to me is that I assume commissioners have a certain amount of political capital with DDOT (and all the agencies) and I hate to think of it getting burned on something like this.


RMP says: (11/17/18 12:58 PM)
Apparently Peet's is closed until after Thanksgiving due to a "flood" which I assume means a plumbing problem. They were handing out free coffee and cookies on the sidewalk this morning. I hope the staff can pick up shifts at other stores if they need the work.
