The rain has sapped my energy, plus I'm in just-back-from-vacation-mode (a short trip to Vegas, which means I'm currently wearing a barrel and standing on a street corner begging for money), but I'm trying to bring you tidbits anyway.
* 909 HALF
: The Project Of Which Its Developers Don't Speak
has apparently topped out, according to the architects
, who I hope won't now be canned for daring to publicly refer to the 380-unit apartment building under construction at Half and I. They also posted a color version of the one rendering we've seen, showing the view up Half Street from south of K. There had been an additional post from the architects saying 909 Half would be opening in December, but that's now gone
, probably because getting to completion seven months from now would be, shall we say, optimistic.
* NEW WEB SITES
: Actual web sites are now up for both F1rst
and ORE 82
. (The former had just a placeholder and the latter's URL didn't actually work a few weeks ago when the fence signage went up.)
And, a few meetings this week to mention:
* PUBLIC SAFETY: The monthly meeting of PSA 106 is Wednesday, May 18 at 7 pm at 200 I St. SE. MPD holds these meetings to address any public safety-related questions and concerns from the neighborhood.
