Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

Giving the commentariat a fresh thread (and tidbit delivery system!) and also enshrining a few items that readers may have missed while sweltering through August:
* MAIALINO: The Union Square Hospitality outpost at the new Thompson Hotel at 3rd and Tingey is going to be Maialino Mare, a "Roman style trattoria." (Eater DC)
* TINGEY SQUARE: Via Twitter, it looks like the construction of the long-planned Tingey Square at the intersection of New Jersey and Tingey is underway.
* GREYSTAR: Via Twitter, evidence that work is apparently gearing up at the Greystar project on the old CSX site west of New Jersey and immediately south of the freeway. Here's my post from a few months ago on the plans.
* PROTECTED LANES: Via Twitter (sensing a theme?), after much (much!) discussion of the perpetual vehicle occupation of the 1st Street bike lanes, both sides of the 1200 block are now separated and protected.
* BOXING: 9Round fitness kickboxing is coming to the Insignia on M building at New Jersey and M.
* BRIG: The Brig beer garden at 8th and L SE is one of the first three bars to apply for a sports betting liquor license.

Well, I finally ate at El Bebe and loved their tacos.


RMP says: (8/20/19 9:40 AM)
Work is progressing at Hatoba (formerly 100 montaditos) but to the untrained eye it looks like they still have a lot of work to do.


smitty2k1 says: (8/20/19 4:10 PM)
So what's with Tingey Square? Just a new traffic pattern? It seems to be quite the construction project (I walk by it every day).


CJBabyDaddy says: (8/21/19 2:09 AM)
@Smitty: JD’s Tingey Square link above reveals all. Think Times Square but without all that Timesey Squarey craziness.

HipCityVeg is coming to West Half along with Atlas, Cold Stone, Compass Coffee, and The Gatsby. There is also something called Base Bowl.


Ampersand says: (8/21/19 5:40 PM)
Just walked by Roy boys with the door partway open. A guy there said they expect to open “last week of August”!


Maelstrom says: (8/22/19 3:31 PM)
Hello from someone who moved out of the neighborhood and across the country a while ago. I was looking around google earth yesterday, JD, and I think there's some new satellite maps of the neighborhood this summer. The Tunnel is finished in the imagery. Worth a post?


RMP says: (8/22/19 8:07 PM)
The signage at Base Bowl says Barbecue and Ramen. Gotta tip my hat to the quality play on words.


NavyYard2015 says: (8/23/19 9:47 AM)
Agreed, RMP! Now I am left to wonder what kind of barbecue it will be. Seems like an odd combo.


202_cyclist says: (8/23/19 5:32 PM)
18 apartments are planned for the long-vacant building next to the Brig. link


NavyYard2015 says: (8/21/19 4:38 PM)
Anyone know what kind of food that will be? Google does not come up with any results.


202_cyclist says: (8/25/19 4:48 PM)
We saw Dotard’s personal helicopter flying over Yards Park and the Anacostia. Hopefully Jared and Ivanka are fleeing.


Daedam says: (8/26/19 12:24 PM)
A newsletter last week for Velocity residents mentioned that Roy Boys plans to open tomorrow (Tuesday), pending resolution of some electrical issue they were facing that came up during inspection. Here's hoping!


JES says: (8/27/19 5:49 PM)
Roy Boys is officially opening on Thursday with a preview on Wednesday evening that I believe is limited to Velocity residents (according to a building flyer we were emailed).


202_cyclist says: (8/28/19 10:00 AM)
It looks like construction has started at the former parking lot at South Capitol and L Street, SE.


GarfieldPark says: (8/28/19 1:21 PM)
Neighborhood Night being hosted by Edward Daniels at Salt Line on Thursday @ 6:30 PM. Anyone attending? Interested in seeing what will be discussed.


Shogungts says: (8/29/19 12:16 AM)
@NavyYard2015 re Base Bowl - I wonder if they are trying to go for something similar to this: link

Went there last year and it was definitely interesting.



NavyYard2015 says: (8/29/19 3:13 PM)
@Shogungts Makes more sense than the American barbecue and ramen combination I was thinking of! Sounds like it will be good.


RMP says: (8/30/19 1:31 PM)
Neighborhood Night had a pretty decent turnout. Weather was nice. Hors d'oeuvres were tasty. Got to meet some cool people.


tmich93 says: (8/30/19 2:13 PM)
@RMP What is Neighborhood Night and is it invitation only?


dcgent says: (8/30/19 2:40 PM)
ABC Pony: Erik Bruner-Yang’s Incoming Navy Yard Cafe Will Mix Italian and Asian Flavors

CJBabyDaddy says: (8/31/19 1:58 AM)
@tmich93: A meet-n-greet with Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner Edward Daniels that was held from 6:30-8:30pm at the Salt Line August 29th. Invite was broadcast to one-and-all via social media. RMP apparently was hogging the hors d’oeuvres because I damn sure didn’t see any.


jdc says: (9/3/19 9:52 AM)
Anyone eaten at Roy Boys yet?


RAWR says: (9/3/19 10:09 AM)
Somewhere (the Maketto-inspired coffeeshop) opened on Saturday.


DCCyclist365 says: (9/3/19 11:27 AM)
Definitely on the eastern edge of JDLand (maybe worth a future expansion of territory?) but a neighbor recently posted a change.org petition against the proposed helicopter Helipad along the Navy Yard(ish) waterfront. This helipad would negatively impact the new 11sth Street Bridge project, the Anacostia Riverfront Trail, and limit potential infill development along the Anacostia River waterfront. The petition can be found here: link


JES says: (9/3/19 2:51 PM)
@jdc, yes. the chicken was delicious. so was the ice cream taco we tried.


202_cyclist says: (9/3/19 3:29 PM)
The Nashville hot chicken is supposed to be delicious. The ice cream tacos also look amazing!

JES— which chicken did you get?


walt says: (9/3/19 4:57 PM)
"Somewhere"
I can not figure out where it is and frankly, I've lost interest. I'm not hip enough to go there, I'm sure.


CL85 says: (9/3/19 6:04 PM)
Regarding that Helipad - some additional context may be important before signing a petition. It sounds like this is an existing Helipad even closer to the neighborhood (across bridge from Bardo) that they are looking to move because their lease is expiring. link


VelocityChris says: (9/3/19 7:06 PM)
The Nashville hot chicken was fantastic! It's not a sauce that's dripping off the chicken like I expected, it's in the batter the chicken is fried-in so it's more subtle, not screaming hot as I expected. It was delicious as was the ice cream taco.

Somewhere was really great as well, love the different vibe. The latte and chocolate croissant were both delicious.


202_cyclist says: (9/3/19 10:15 PM)
CL85– Regarding the helipad— isn’t the National Park Service trying to transfer several acres of land at Poplar Point to develop, thus necessitating the move of the helipad from east of the river?


jdc says: (9/4/19 12:25 PM)
hey JD - with the slate of recent openings/announcements, I think this page needs a refresh at the bottom link


bdj says: (9/4/19 8:44 PM)
Lol "Hatoba coming in early 2019." Did something get messed up with their permits, or are they just incredibly slow?


JD says: (9/4/19 10:39 PM)
@jdc, my summer isn't over quite yet.



202_cyclist says: (9/5/19 10:26 AM)
Reposting from a local bike commuting listserve. If you can provide any assistance, it would be greatly appreciated.

"In response to a car v bike crash (bike trashed, injuries minor) yesterday morning (9/4) approx 8:45-9:00 am, at the intersection of 4th and L St SE, seeking anyone who either saw the event or has heard of anyone who saw the event.

Many thanks-"


walt says: (9/5/19 11:02 AM)
@202_cyclist:
I didn't see it, but we have a lot of cameras in the neighborhood, maybe someone has something on camera. Any info on direction of rider and car?
Contact info for witnesses?


JD says: (9/5/19 11:44 AM)
@202, check your Yahoo account for some contact info re: someone who saw it happen.


RMP says: (9/5/19 10:25 PM)
New hype video for the Douglass bridge: link


RAWR says: (9/3/19 10:09 AM)
Somewhere (the Maketto-inspired coffeeshop) opened on Saturday. Definitely a different vibe from many other places in the neighborhood, but definitely a welcomed addition!


FromTheTurret says: (9/6/19 10:40 AM)
Does anyone know what Parc Riverside is doing on their first floor? It looks like they may be renovations...anyone know?


JD says: (9/6/19 9:11 PM)
I am on a plane home and so won't write a post until the weekend, but I have a release from the Lerner Cos. announcing the start of construction on the 244-unit 1000 South Capitol apt building.


bdj says: (9/6/19 11:20 PM)
@fromtheturret that area in Parc was formerly a weird room that I’m sure looked good on initial renderings and the website, but no one ever used and just has C-SPAN on, and their leasing office. I’d assume they’re consolidating the leasing office into the new building. Probably changing the room into some kind of amenity, maybe co working space or a better lounge/kitchen people will actually use
