It's New Year's Eve, and I'm trying desperately to wring two more days of laziness out of this holiday season, but here's a couple items anyway:
* I'm not about to plunk down the $35 a month for a subscription to find out for sure, but this BidClerk.com posting
on a search for a general contractor sounds pretty familiar
: "Renovation of and a new addition to a multi-residential complex in Washington. Completed construction plans call for the construction of a six-story, 170-unit apartment building to include renovation of an existing four-story, 157,000-square-foot warehouse with a two-story, 49,000-square-foot addition above the existing roof. General contractor bids are due January 10, 2008." Could there really be that many buildings in the city other than the brown-and-white Pattern/Joiner Shop at The Yards
that would so perfectly fit that description?
* If you're driving through the intersection at Half and I
, you might be so distracted by the temporary blacktop that now cuts across the old southwest corner that you miss the new sign on the southeast corner advertising DRI/Transwestern's Square 696
project. There's a rendering but no other details.
* The DC Foreign Car garage at 31 K (on the 1015 Half Street
site) has just a few hours to become the last demolished building
of 2007. But maybe they're gunning for the honor of being the first one of 2008.
