The rumors have abounded for many months that Onyx on First would be scrapping its original configuration as a condo building. As recently as November I couldn't get co-developer Faison to comment, but in today's WBJ/On Site piece (subscribers only) on the residential market in Near Southeast, there's the following: "But Canyon-Johnson Urban Fund and its partner, Faison, converted the project to apartments eight months ago, says Don Deutsch, Faison's senior managing director. Those apartments will be available for leasing in September."
The article also says that Monument Realty hasn't yet decided whether its 340 residential units on Half Street just north of the ballpark will be condos or apartments.

I believe it's only available to subscribers, but if you've got any way to get your hands on this week's Washington Business Journal, you'll probably want to see the quarterly magazine "On Site" that's included--seven stories on development around the ballpark, as well as a big map showing all the plans over the next few years (what a great idea!). Stories on Monument Realty and on the plans for The Yards, an interview with Michael Stevens of the BID ("Preaching Patience in Washington Nationals' New Neighborhood"), a piece highlighting how residential developers are feeling bullish about the area, and even a short profile of some pesky neighborhood blogger who's been tracking the area since 2003. I haven't read all the stories yet (it's gonna take a while!), so if I find some nuggets that I haven't covered here in the past, I'll post them.
UPDATE: Also, the March issue of Washingtonian is hitting the stands (though the articles won't be online for a while), with articles on the ballpark and also on the planned residential projects nearby.
