Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

WBJ reported on Thursday that Donohoe has made its decision to switch the long-planned 1111 New Jersey office development to a 13-story, 324-unit residential building with 11,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and 213 underground parking spaces. It will be called the "Gallery at Capitol Riverfront."
Further, the construction contract has already been "awarded" (to, ahem, Donohoe Construction), and WBJ quotes a company official as saying the project will begin in the first quarter of 2014, with delivery in 2016.
The site, which is above the New Jersey Avenue portion of the Navy Yard-Ballpark subway station, also includes the land upon which sits the St. Matthews Baptist Church at New Jersey and L (seen at right), which Donohoe has apparently acquired. As you can see in the rendering, the building will sit right next to but will not contain the Metro station entrance (the way 55 M Street contains the west entrance at Half Street).
Donohoe bought most of the project's property back in 2005, then purchased the rest from WMATA.
If they do intend to get underway next year, that brings the total of new residential units expected in the neighborhood over the next two years to nearly 1,900, with Twelve12, River Parc, and the Park Chelsea already out of the ground and Yards/Parcel N, 800 New Jersey and now this Donohoe project in the lineup to start in 2014.
I think I might have to buy a new camera.

Is it bad that the office vs. residential part of the equation doesn't matter to me anymore? All i look for is retail square footage, and this building has a decent amount!

I was just wondering about this development. It seemed to me that all of the construction coming on line lately had all been residential and that the office market seemed to be comparatively weaker in the Navy Yard neighborhood. So, we will be getting more apartment dwellers- if they fill up all these apartments they are building, the Navy Yard won't be (as a visitor friend called it)so quiet in the near future.

On the one hand, apartments will fill up faster than offices will. On the other hand, offices are much more dense than apartments -- 4-6 people per 1,000 feet, instead of 1-2.

Ultimately, retailers will open wherever they have customers. An office-to-residential switch means having fewer customers sooner, vs. more customers later.

To be fair, the office market sucks everywhere around here currently... I believe that huge new building in Rosslyn (1812 N Moore, i think?) still doesn't have a single tenant in their 30+ floors.
