From a press release hitting the business wires today about the condo project at 1100 First Street: "The Canyon-Johnson Urban Fund is making its first-ever investment in the Washington, D.C., market by partnering with Faison of Charlotte, North Carolina, on the development of a transit-oriented condominium project next to the Navy Yard Metro station in the Near Southeast submarket. [...] Plans call for 266 condominium units over a four-level underground parking garage with approximately 210 parking spaces and 65 storage spaces. The condominium community is part of a master planned development that will include a 13-story office building adjacent to the project, which will be separately developed by Opus. [...] Canyon-Johnson Urban Fund, the development's major equity investor, is a joint venture between Canyon Capital Realty Advisors and Earvin "Magic" Johnson's Johnson Development Corporation." The release also says that demolition is scheduled for the "third quarter of 2006," which means, uh, any minute now. And: "[P]roject completion is expected in the third quarter of 2008. The majority of units, designed to attract entry-level professionals, will range in price from the high $200,000's to the high $300,000's with an average unit size of 725 square feet. Residents of the full-service building will have amenities including a public courtyard, game room and pool. "

Updated pictures--and the debut of new goofy construction slide shows for these projects--on both the 20 M and Capper Seniors #2 pages. (20 M has begun work on it's 10th and final floor.) And I also added a few shots to the Stadium Construction Gallery, as work at the southeast corner of the site continues to proceed (concrete pillars have been poured, and there even appears to be actual construction of platform at 1st and O). I haven't updated my overhead shots in a while, I must admit--walking along the path on the Frederick Douglass Bridge is taxing normally, but in this weather, I'm not sure I'd make it :-). Will try to get there soon. But of course Clark/Hunt/Smoot's construction web cam can give you the up-to-the-minute overhead view better than I ever could....

A small Post blurb says that the planned vote by the DC Sports and Entertainment Commission on the Garages Wrapped with Development Goodness next to the new ballpark has been delayed: "The city attorney general's office has raised questions about the legality of Miller's plans that mayoral aides have sought to answer," and so Miller and mayoral aides didn't supply the necessary paperwork to the DCSEC in time to allow for a vote today. A spokesman says the mayor still expects the plan to be approved by the commission.
