Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

Last month, Forest City filed plans with the Zoning Commission for a design review of Yards Parcel G, currently home to the Trapeze School and now expected to be the new headquarters for Chemonics International, a USAID contractor.
Note that when the news first broke, it was said that this building would be at New Jersey and M, but that's incorrect--it is planned for the northwest corner of New Jersey and N and/or Tingey and/or the proposed Tingey Square, as seen in this rendering, which helpfully provides Nats Park and the DC Water headquarters building as reference points. (And directly across N from Chemonics HQ is the planned residential building on Parcel I, which you can read about here.)
This would be a 290,000-square-foot, 11-story-plus-penthouse building, with about 14,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and about 165 below-grade parking spaces. The zoning filing says that approximately 1,200 employees would be expected to move to the building when it opens. There will also be an at-grade bicycle lobby for building users.
This building's west side will face 1 1/2 Street, Yards West's planned pedestrian-oriented-but-not-pedestrian-only "spine," and to the north it will be bounded by the planned Quander Street that is to be (re-)built at the spot where the currently huge empty block is bisected by an east-west sidewalk.
Here's a trip around three of the building's corners, starting at its northwest corner where 1 1/2 and Quander Streets will meet, then at Quander and New Jersey, and then at New Jersey and N/Tingey/Tingey Square:
For those of you concerned for the fate of the trapezers, the zoning filing says that the school would be moved to Parcel E, which is the site of Building 202, and which apparently will soon be its own design review application. (Hmmmmm.....)
I threw together a quick Parcel G page, which will jog longtime residents' memories of Spooky Building 213, which occupied this parcel along with Parcels A and F for 50 years or so.
The zoning design review hearing is scheduled for April.
UPDATE: Forgot to include that Chemonics received a $5.2 million property tax break for its decision to relocate to the Yards. Specifically, it is an eight-year tax abatement running from FY 2023 to FY 2030.
(See, I do still know how to blog. I may found out this weekend if I still know how to take pictures.)

Good to hear you’ll be dusting off that Polaroid Swinger and hittin’ the bricks so early in 2019.
Did I just say “ Polaroid Swinger?!” Holy crap, I’m old.

Now THAT is a pretty cool looking building. It's hard to imagine that the large empty field in the middle of JD Land will one day look similar to that rendering.


JD says: (1/3/19 12:32 PM)
BTW, in the last thread someone asked about what's going on atop the Nats Park garages--building permits point to the installation of "solar canopies."


jdc says: (1/3/19 3:54 PM)
That's a great use of the top level of a parking garage, and it has the bonus of covering cars on the top from rain/sun/snow, which is usually why folks don't like parking up there.

I saw two people surveying this morning at the vacant lot at New Jersey and K St SE. I don’t know if they are doing this as part of the ongoing construction for the Garrett (excellent name, by the way!) or if there are plans to develop the vacant lot.

WHAAAT Building 202 is potentially swinging back into action?
