The Oct. 13 Voice of the Hill
) has pieces on two Near Southeast items: the cleanup of the Virginia Avenue Park
at 9th and Virginia in the East End
(on page 4), and an item (page 14) on the vacant Washington Star/Washington Post building
at 3rd and Virginia, and the Washington Canal Park
project just to the plant's south. (Scroll to the bottom of my Canal Park
page, and you can see rough drawings of how the building could look after a conversion to office or mixed-use.) The article mentions a target date of 2007 or 2008 for Canal Park, which is a pretty fair delay from the original 2006 completion timeline. You can also look at my Capper/Carrollsburg
page for more information about the housing that will be going up around the park.
