Evangelical, schmevangelical. I’m agnostic on what flavor of Kool-Aid is being dispensed. The tax-exempt operation of what are essentially commercial enterprises is what sticks in my craw.

That's a huge theater!
Guessing they will rent it out for events like the ("It's a) Miracle" Theater on 8th Street?

This is good news!
Sorry about those that disagree with a church investing in our neighborhood, buying up decrepit properties such as this, that formerly was a (non-taxpaying) charter school, and providing critically needed services such as child care. These folks are investing big time and big money, and you have to respect that.

Maybe I'm late to this news, but what's going on at the TSNY (Trapeze school)? The entire yard is dug up and there's a bulldozer smashing away parts of its wall. Is it moving? Or renovating?
says: (9/29/19 6:12 PM)
Also, anyone know why half of the north-bound portion of New Jersey Ave right across from the TSNY (intersection of NJ/Tingey/N) has been dug up with construction work the last four months? Initially I thought it was some emergency pipe work but they've been working there for quite a while now!

I don't have to respect that rich corporations continue to get richer because they don't pay taxes. That means they get 40% more income and revenue than the rest of us do. I could make big investments too if I had 40% more money.

The former Bower sales office is apparently now an Arris leasing office.

Apparently I missed the news that Brookfield sold off Arris to Mill Creek. Anyone know when that happened?

Does anyone know what the big white tent on the lot just west of the Navy Yard is for. It’s visible from M street near the 6th Street gate.

It's the new home of the Trapeze School. Their "building" should appear in that new spot before too long.

I pressed my nose against the door at Hatoba this evening, the future ramen shop in the Boilermaker Building in the 300 block of Tingey. Dude came out. After wiping my smudge off the glass, he said they were shooting for a soft opening on Friday, October 11 — maybe lunch, maybe 5pm. Stay tuned.

Going to really miss having that green space across NJ Ave.
Coworkers in my building are getting desperate as more and more parking lots are being replaced by buildings.

smitty2k1 -- maybe your coworkers might have to take metro or one of the many bus routes that serves our neighborhood. I understand that people live throughout the region and commute the Capitol Riverfront/JD Land but I have little sympathy for most people who drive here when there are so many transit options.
says: (10/10/19 10:40 PM)
Agree with 202. I have very little sympathy for folks who drive to work in our neighborhood and I have always disliked the sad and dreary, barren looking parking lots scattered throughout JDLand (and I've lived here since 2012).
says: (10/11/19 8:53 PM)
Solid turnout at Hatoba for opening day. Excellent neighborhood addition.
says: (10/12/19 12:54 AM)
Anyone have an update on the stabbing at Cap South metro station on Friday afternoon?
says: (10/12/19 12:57 AM)
They arrested a 15 year old girl. Sounds like it was an altercation between teens on a train.

@RMP: We hit Hatoba for lunch Friday and Saturday. Excellent indeed.

Anyone interested in meeting up somewhere (outside the ballpark) to watch Game 3?

I watched the Wild Card Game from Top of the Yard and it was surprisingly uncrowded, plus cheaper than the Bullpen. Recommended if you're considering meetup locations.

I caved and bought standing room tickets for tonight and tomorrow.

Anybody have any news on those assaults at the Navy yard Metro? I saw comments about 5 guys assaulting multiple people on Nextdoor.

The Nats have DESTINY -- they remind me of my 97' Cleveland Indians, minus the part where we lost to the marlins in game 7 of the world series because of Jose Mesa and then eventually Charlie Nagy.
Go nats -- going to mission to feel the energy of tonight's soon to be historic win!!
says: (10/16/19 10:11 AM)
NATS! NATS! NATS!
Who'd we rather play-- the Astros or Yankees? What an incredible turn-around from May when the Nationals were 12 or 13 games under .500.
says: (10/16/19 11:38 AM)
CJ1-- "If it's what you say, I love it, especially later in the summer.”
Folks-- assuming you don't have $2500 for a pair of tickets for the World Series, we should have a JD Land watch party at the Hampton Inn rooftop bar for the home games.
says: (10/16/19 12:47 PM)
I second the JD land watch party -- whatcha say @Jdland?
says: (10/16/19 12:51 PM)
Er, um, I'm probably in the Spare No Expense category, at least for the first home game. My dad was six weeks old the last time Washington was in a World Series, and he's never been to one, so I'm making sure he gets to this one.
says: (10/16/19 1:14 PM)
That is very, very sweet of you JD. Someone wake me when the Skins make the Superbowl. I expect a long, long nap.
says: (10/16/19 1:30 PM)
As much as I would love to beat the Yankees, I'd rather have the Astros. My fear is Nats Park (and JD Land!) would be overtaken by the NY fans. Not enjoyable.
says: (10/16/19 1:52 PM)
@GarfieldPark-- Yes, someone was saying that we can only speculate who Giuliani is calling behind home plate.

Any word about square 767? There been not one peep from DCHA!

Re: rebuilding the senior center.
I'm sure there's a good reason for this, so can someone tell me? Why would all the lumber for the senior center show up and be stored outside 4 months before building is slated to begin? I've heard of acclimating wood to the site, but shouldn't it be indoors? or at least covered? Or doesn't it matter?

Re: Changes around Nats Park:
Today on my way out, I noticed:
1. Installation of some large thing that may be an antenna or a giant camera on the top deck of the parking structure at the NE corner of 1st & N.
2. Temporary flimsy metal crowd control gates that have been held in place with sandbags have been replaced by concrete crowd control barriers (at least along the back side of the ballpark, near the Douglass bridge. Not sure when this happened, but it's a huge improvement over those metal junk pieces and if permanent, would look lovely if they were painted with murals.
3. The intersection of South Capitol and Potomac Ave has new traffic lights -- with the lights hung over the intersection. UGLY!
I'd also like to share my displeasure about the lighted signage on Nats Park and the parking garages. While waiting at the light, and looking around, my eye mistook an advertisement lighting change for the traffic light change, and I almost drove through the red light. I still don't like having advertisements shoved in my face while I'm driving around and the blinking flashing changing ones are the worst! I will remember this the next election day when I'm voting for council for Ward 6.
says: (10/21/19 4:59 PM)
Concrete barriers also long 1st St on the side with the currently empty expanse.

80 M St SE presented at ANC6D. Vertical addition will be mass timber!
ANC also unanimously booed the idea of a cycletrack on P St SW. Somehow, a lane of 26 parked cars was deemed the paragon of "inclusivity," compared to dedicating safe passage space for 500+ bicyclists, scooters, wheelchairs, etc. a day.
says: (10/22/19 2:19 PM)
Will the 80 M Street plans go forward, irrespective of WeWork's pending implosion?

Parc Riverside phase 2 is really close to wrapping up exterior work, if not already completed. I think all windows are now in. I wonder how soon 37 L will get brick and windows - they're moving at an incredible place and may top out before Thanksgiving.
says: (10/23/19 9:17 AM)
@JD or anyone else, any word on what retail is coming to the half street section of One Hill South? Looks like construction has begun and I know there were rumblings of CVS or possibly MedStar.
says: (10/23/19 9:32 AM)
@timch93, not rumblings, it's confirmed that both CVS and a MedStar primary care office are going in at One Hill South.
says: (10/23/19 1:38 PM)
NATS! NATS! NATS!
It looks like there might be retail going in on the corner of Park Riverside. Also, the scaffolding for Meridian on 1st Street was removed, so pedestrians have a little more space.
says: (10/23/19 8:54 PM)
Anyone know why its taken SO long for Parc Riverside to finish their build? Are Toll Bros contractors just incompetent? It's been 2+ years since they broke ground...
says: (10/24/19 9:17 AM)
Watch party on Friday at Yards Park for those of us without tickets. I asked on social media if it going to be a live or delayed feed and they said live. We will see.
says: (10/24/19 10:46 AM)
Also-- the Novel building is having a fancy rooftop watch party on Friday.
says: (10/24/19 4:57 PM)
There's no retail going into Parc. Velocity residents were told this a while back. As for why it's taking them so long, I have no idea. We directly overlook it on the courtyard side of Velocity, and months passed without any work going on at one point. They're finally back at it though.
