On Monday the JDLand camera took another spin in the neighborhood, this time heading to 1st Street SE to visit the F1rst
apartment building and its sibling the Residence Inn, which both of which are now open.
But before I get to those, there is some news, which is that it's been announced that fitness studio Solidcore
is the latest retail tenant now signed, joining Chop't, Taylor Gourmet, Chipotle, Roti, Rasa Indian Grill, and Declaration. Solidcore is expected to open in the latter stages of 2017. (For those of you salivating at the rest of the lineup, it looks like Chop't will be the first to open, perhaps next month, followed by Taylor, Chipotle, and Roti in late summer/early fall.)
With that, onto the photos of both the apartment building and the hotel. This is a sampling--see the gallery
for the full narrated tour.
