Serious workplace accident on the ground this morning at the Chemonics construction site. One worker clearly suffered life-threatening physical trauma. Hoping for the best. Another worker appeared to suffer a much less serious knee injury.

202, I couldn't agree more re the GNC. It's tough though - retail seems to need to be present in some critical mass to make an area a destination for it. Fingers crossed that something fills that vacant GNC spot sooner than later!

The GNC on Tingey Street is closing. I am sorry for the employees who are losing their jobs but I hope that there can be better retail at that location that helps encourage a vibrant streetscape.

CVS on the corner of I and Half seems like it's nearly completely stocked. I'd assume their opening is imminent.

@Jscott280 and @AGH. I agree, don't want to bore our neighbors with all the back and forth! In the meantime, my email is sajayjaz28@yahoo.com.
I did not get my own inspector. Most things were minor (caulking, paint touch ups, uneven shelf, w/d not level) but I did find however, that my junction box in the living room was off center and was told that they could not change it because the ceiling is concrete....(so either come drunk or tilt your head when enter my place!!!!)

@sasq @AGH. I did not have a inspector for my walkthrough. In general, the building/unit seemed very well built. The only issues I had were minor blemishes with paint and punch out items (dents..etc). In the future, lets create an envy (hopefully) owners groupme so we dont take over jdland with envy (i hate that name) talk.

Sasq and Jscott280: Ok, I'm revising my July estimate and now just hoping for before Labor Day. For the walk through, did you see any major issues? Did you have a third party inspector come? This is our first new construction purchase which is much different.

And thanks CJBabyDaddy! That confirms what I thought too. We are on 6 and they told us that floors 2-5 would be completed and moved in likely before we close.

@CJBabyDaddy Thank you so much for the welcome and the background information for Bower. That gives me hope! The anxiety is on overload and moving during a pandemic...geesh. But it will all be well and soon! :)

Jscott280– thank you for posting about the proposed housing at the 7-11 site. Unfortunately, from the debate elsewhere, it seems that the NIMBYs have lost their minds.

Sasq: Our Bower experience informs me that the entire building need not be finished in order for the COA to be issued or move-ins to start. Bower COA: Dec 2018. First closings and move-ins: Feb 2019. Many upper floor units were being finished for several months thereafter.

Watching you and others geek out over the Avidian and eNvy revives fond and anxious —now seemingly ancient — memories. Enjoy your new homes. Welcome to the ‘hood.

@jscott280. Walk-thru went well. I heard "mid-July and possibly a few in early July". Interestingly, I walked into the Kelvin on Sunday (didn't realize they were open for over a month). I was just curious when they would finish their rooftop, to see if there was any indication of when ours would be completed. She said the entire building was not completed and that the crews are still working, based on the floors that are being occupied. Their rooftop is supposed to be done by 4 July. This made me assume that our building doesn't have to be completely finished for us to move in...but who knows. One can always hope!

Good call JES, I think you must be right. We were out on a walk today and workers were fixing the loose boards on the Riverwalk (in front of the DC H2O HQS). Also, third time at Yellow cafe and literally everything (coffee/pastries) we've had so far is incredible.

Chris, I'd guess that's just staging for some other project, like when they build a small piece of what the exterior's gonna look like (I dunno what it's called. spec wall? any architect wanna weigh in?). Perhaps for the building right across Half on the chiller site.

Any ideas what the little building being built on the North side of 49L St is going to be? They're just building right on top of the parking lot asphalt, no foundation so I assume it's going to be somewhat temporary, but that's a lot of steel and reinforcement going up, and a cinder block wall.

@jscott280 & AGH Got a late nite email from Laura...lol I'm on 3rd and have a walk-thru on Monday. From what I understand, they still don't have Certificates of Occupancy (apparently, it's a slow going process) but they want to get the walk-thrus out of the way. I have to tell myself August....too scared to put my eggs in the July basket!!! But, yes....exciting!

@jscott80 & Sasq,

This is such exciting news! We haven’t gotten any updates from Laura since early April so was wondering on the progress. So if you’re doing walkthroughs and settlement I guess they have their COA? We’re on the 6th floor and hoping mid-July.

@sasq supposed to be Wednesday or Thursday (even tho I have yet to get a settlement statement....ugh). The lobby is absolutely gorgeous though, they are still doing a lot of work. There isn’t any gym equipment yet, but that should be coming in the next week.

@202: Hey, not all of us PA’s like cigars. Many of us fly coach. And some of us never heard of the Robb Report before this week. We’re quite a diverse bunch.

Years ago (maybe 2011) Tommy Wells said the Navy was looking at Bldg 202 as a site for the Navy Museum. Doubt that will happen since its a DC land swap but that would be awesome if it went there.

CJBabyDaddy— the Robb Report is for pretentious jackasses who like to smoke expensive cigars and fly on private jets.

Whatever the Robb Report is rates our own Albi here in our ‘hood as the 2nd best new restaurant in 2020. Not 2nd best new restaurant in SE. Not 2nd best new restaurant in DC. 2nd best new restaurant in the U.S. of A.

Thanks for sharing, CJ. Interesting news - I wish there was a little more information on the parcel the Navy has in mind, although I understand keeping that information close to the vest until/unless a deal is finalized. Hopefully it's still JDLand territory (could be a nice segue from the actual Navy Yard to the planned bridge park?). In any event, I've heard the museum really is worthwhile, so it should be in a more accessible location.
