I'm going to try to get back into the tidbit biz to make up for my generally decreased output (except for the past few days!). We'll see how it goes, and it also means I have some catching up to do, so apologies if some of these are old news to you.
* ANACOSTIA RIVER TRAIL EXTENSION:
Back at the end of October, the stretch of the Anacostia River Trail from Benning Road to the DC/Maryland line officially opened
, providing not only another five miles of trail offerings within DC but creating an all new gateway to the large Anacostia Tributary Trail System
* CHANGING HANDS:
I totally meant to mention back in July that the Empire Cab building at 37 L St. SE was sold for $6.7 million, according to WBJ
(scroll down). This building, as I wrote a number of years ago, was the site in 1977 of a terrible fire where nine people died
. In other changing-hands-news, a little birdie tells me that the land held by Akridge along 1st St. SE between K and L that was put on the market earlier this year
is now under contract to a residential developer. I imagine we'll find out more when the sale closes in coming weeks.
Happy Thanksgiving to all.
