 Page Through from Before to After

A few tidbits to throw your way, but first let's start off with one of my favorite photos, taken eight years ago yesterday while standing at 1st and M. You can see more shots from Sept. 17, 2006 in the archive.
* UNLEASHED BY PETCO: It was rumored back in May, and there's still been no official announcement from Forest City, but a building permit issued last week seems to be the final confirmation that Unleashed by Petco is coming to the Boilermaker Shops.
* CSX: The Post reports that "It could be a few weeks before the Federal Highway Administration releases a decision on the proposed expansion of the Virginia Avenue Tunnel in Southeast Washington." The "Record of Decision" hasn't yet been finalized. In the meantime, the Committee of 100 has let it be known that any decision short of an indefinite delay will result in a lawsuit. (Shocker!)
* HALF STREET: WBJ talks to new Half Street poobah Jair Lynch about his group's plans for the Half Street hole, now that they've bought it from Monument Realty. "While the project is expected to remain a mix of residential, retail and hotel, Lynch said he is now considering condos in addition to apartments, tweaking unit sizes, adding green features and amenities and bringing in a 'completely different retail mix.'" (Longtime area observers note that in Monument's original plans, the two residential buildings at the south end of the block were planned to be condos and apartments. And of course it's easy to "change" the retail mix when there isn't any to begin with.) They hope to get underway by 2016, WBJ says.
* MLB LATE NIGHT WITH METRO: WTOP: "Although the Washington Nationals have clinched the NL East, the team has not reached a deal with Metro to keep trains running past midnight during home playoff games." The Metro policy is that the Nationals would have to pay at $29,500 deposit to stay open an extra hour during the week; some of you may remember that back in 2012, the Nats did not step forward to pay, so Livingsocial offered to foot the bill.

Still interesting to see that they're changing up the retail layouts. Sounds like they plan fewer sports bars and perhaps more space for soft goods. None of their retail footprints were large enough to house even 20,000-foot "junior anchors," even though there's big box interest in the South Capitol corridor.

If the Nats clinch the 1 seed in the NL (go nats!), MLB will actually have very little to worry about because of how the schedule falls. The NLDS first two home games would be on a Friday and Saturday (with Game 5 if necessary on a Thursday), the NLCS games would fall on two Sat/Sun weekends with the 3 games at the lower seed during the week. And because of the stupid All Star Game determining home field in the World Series, the three NL games are a Fri through Sun. So home games for the top NL seed for over half of the NL playoffs would be on Fridays and Saturdays: link

I think that's how it ended up working out last time, that despite all the sturm und drang it ended up never being needed.


JES says: (9/18/14 3:34 PM)
Well, last time, we made a bit of a hasty exit..... who knows how the latter rounds would have played out.

Well said, JD, on Jair Lynch. What a bunch of developer nonsense-talk!

I see the obstructionists are still trying to block the CSX tunnel. The narrow old tunnel that is there now, is an accident waiting to happen. This all politics. The lamest excuses are being made to stop this project. In 3 years it will be finished and the residents can live in peace, again. The longer this is held up, the pain will just be felt further down the road.
