Since January, 2003
            
 Page Through from Before to After

Trying to start 2014 off right--even if it means posting a few things I didn't quite get to in 2013.
* ANC: Ed Kaminski has resigned as Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner for 6D02, the area basically from the ballpark northward to the south side of I Street. A special election will be in the offing before too long.
* METRO: Via CapBiz, Metro has put out "development concepts" for the five station sites it is touting to developers. However, when it came to the Navy Yard/Chiller Plant site on the southwest corner of Half and L, there were no pretty drawings, just a suggestion to acquire the privately owned lot next door, and that maybe a project with ground-floor retail would be nice, too. If you want to know the increasingly long history of WMATA's attempts to find a developer for this land (and get a new chiller plant as part of the deal), here's some reading for you.
* BALLPARK SQUARE: New fence signage along 1st Street north of Nats Park touting the Ballpark Square residential/hotel/retail development, "delivering in late 2015." There do appear to be building permits for the residential and hotel parts of the development currently working through the pipeline, though there is No Time To Lose to hit that "late 2015" date (and co-developer McCaffery hedges a bit with "early 2016"). I will note, though, that there is something kind of missing in the rendering shown on the fence signage. (Hint: It's L-shaped, and is by a different developer, and is supposed to start soon too.)
* WAYBACK: The Hill is Home's "Lost Capitol Hill" series looks at the Anacostia Engine House, located at 8th and Virginia for most of the years from 1839 until the glorious arrival of the Southeast Freeway in the 1960s.
* NO, REALLY: My latest excuse explanation for my decreased blogging output. (Though if you follow JDLand on Facebook or Twitter, you already know this.)

Apologies to social media folks if you were truly expecting something, um, Upworthy-worthy on this post. I figured everyone would just price in my normal operating mode of sarcastic irony....


JES says: (1/7/14 9:35 AM)
Lol at late 2015... they know it's already early 2014, right? Never a good sign when they hang banners that are out of date like 3 weeks after they hang them.


JD says: (1/7/14 9:39 AM)
My guess is that it could technically still be possible, given that the sign is highlighting the prime retail offering, which would be the two-story retail building at 1st and N. That can probably be done by the end of next year.


JD says: (1/7/14 10:12 AM)
(I do see that the residential building got its shoring/sheeting permit approved late last month.)


JES says: (1/8/14 11:13 AM)
Another legit question: Would two developers theoretically be able to build literally side-by-side at the exact same time? That's what we're possibly going to see with Ballpark Square and that Hampton Inn site, like you mentioned above. I'm just not sure how all that would work out with having enough space for both to have construction staging, etc at the same time...


JES says: (1/8/14 11:17 AM)
Also just read the brochure... 40,000 square feet of retail? That is a lot. And I am now excited.


JD says: (1/9/14 12:24 PM)
Oops, sorry--it's the L Hotel/Hampton Inn that got a shoring permit, though not for the entire L-shaped site.
