Renderings of 70/100 I
May 5, 2006 6:28 PM

I've now posted renderings of the 70/100 I Street residential project by JPI, grabbed from the public documents filed with the BZA adjustment application for the site. The renderings show two very tall buildings, attached to each other. Certainly will change the look and feel of I Street just a bit! The site continues to be cleared in preparation for construction, which will likely start late in 2006.

Canal Park Slowly Moving Forward?
May 5, 2006 4:43 PM

Gustafson Guthrie Nichol Ltd., the landscape architecture firm picked to design the planned Washington Canal Park along 2nd Street, has finally added it to their project list on their web site. The only new tidbit is that their info page says "Completion Date: December 2006." Now, whether that's a real date or a fingers-crossed date, I don't know, but at least it's something....

UPDATE, 5/5: Apparently the "Completion Date: December 2006" on the GGN Canal Park project page was a typo, and has been removed. But hopefully there's going to be some movement before too long.

250 M Zoning Application Filed
May 5, 2006 10:41 AM

The new office building planned for 250 M Street ("Federal Gateway II") is, from a zoning standpoint, actually part of the Capper / Carrollsburg planned unit development (PUD), and last week an application was filed with the Zoning Commission for approval of the 250 M second-stage PUD. The application describes the project as a 110-ft-high, 9-story building with ground-floor retail and 194 spaces of underground parking. A hearing date has not yet been added to the DCOZ calendar. William C. Smith, the project's developer, is touting delivery of the building in late 2008.

Streets in Stadium Footprint Officially Closed
May 5, 2006 9:53 AM
This only would have made news if the legislation had failed, but as part of my goal to bring you every stinking piece of information about Near Southeast, no matter how trivial, I will report that at Tuesday's city council meeting there was a final reading and final vote on B16-0628, "Closing of Public Alleys in Square 702, 703, 704, 705 and 706 Act of 2006", to officially close parts of Half, O, and P streets within the stadium footprint, and it passed by voice vote. So for most of us peons, there will be no more access to the interior of the stadium footprint (the fences have now ringed the entire site). I rejiggered the "Inside the Footprint" section of my stadium page, to make sure that I included photos of all of the buildings and landscapes that will soon be gone.
