 Page Through from Before to After

Two Post articles of note this morning:
* A nice little piece in the Food section on Cornercopia; it notes that Albert and Danica are surprised that the majority of their business comes from their jam-packed deli sandwiches, instead of the groceries, beer, and wine part of their operation. If you don't follow @Cornercopia on Twitter, you're missing alerts on specials, hours of operation, and the occasional alert to cops ticketing cars and/or jaywalkers.
* Jonathan O'Connell's article on the Department of Homeland Security's search for 1.1 million square feet of office space (apart from their new HQ at St. Elizabeth's) mentions that, with the SEC's leasing of 900,000 square feet at Constitution Center (the old USDOT) in Southwest, the presumed top contender for the DHS lease is now out of the running. The article quotes an Akridge senior vice president as saying that "a number of companies with properties atop stations along Metro's Green Line, both in Prince George's County and Southeast Washington, were likely in play."
There are two current development sites in Near Southeast that would appear to meet the DHS lease requirements of space and proximity to the Green Line (Navy Yard, of course). Those would be the Yards (designed to eventually have 1.8 million square feet of office space), and WC Smith's planned development at 800 New Jersey (the parking lot north of the trash transfer station and west of 225 Virginia, nestled just south of the SE Freeway), which has been billed as a 1.1-million-square-foot mixed-use project. Neither of those would be ready for quick move-in, which I believe was originally part of the DHS solicitation (points for anyone who can find the RFP online--I can't put my hands on it). The WC Smith site would need DPW's move from the trash transfer site completed (which I've been hearing may not be all that far off) so that the various parcels of land on squares 737 and 739 can be properly squared off, which includes the building of I Street through to New Jersey Avenue (and H Street as well).

I can't really wait for the horrendous building on 800 New Jersey to get demolished. That's where whole food supposed to come right?

There's no building at 800 NJ, unless you mean the trash transfer station? That's 900 NJ, which is not part of the WC Smith project site--it's part of the Capper redevelopment footprint, and is scheduled to become a mixed-income apartment building eventually.

800 NJ (currently a parking lot) is where the Whole Foods has long been rumored, though never confirmed. I'm not sure how DHS would feel about having a grocery store in the ground floor of what I imagine would be a pretty locked-down complex.


Khan says: (8/4/10 3:25 PM)
Yeah, I meant the trash transfer station. DHS won't allow a grocery store or any kind of retail on the building they choose to lease. That is just a security risk. The Yards is just out of the question for DHS.
