Thanks for the heads up on this. I know a lot of people think CSX is the devil, but, these closures don't seem to really have a huge impact on things. Maybe I'm driving at times where any impact is less obvious though.

I think this neighborhood is really well-situated with numerous access points to any roadways we need. I use this intersection almost daily, and I will simply take the 11th street entrance to 295 OR I will go over the Douglass Bridge instead. No big deal.

Wow! Forest City knows how to throw a good party,

In somewhat better news, I am going to dig up some very (VERY) old code I wrote years ago for a bulletin board offering and repurpose it here. It won't be pretty, and it won't be very technologically advanced, but it'll be a step up from just yakking in the comment threads.

That just means there's somewhere for everyone!
Okay, the earliest-of-early version of the JDLand Message Board is here:
All beta testers welcome. Be prepared for anything beyond the basics to not work. But I was in the groove to just get the rudimentary version up and running, so have at it.
(and the first thing I realize I need to add is emoji)

Note there is now a sneak peek on the main home page for message board posts.

By the way, with access to the in-process permit database restored, I can update a few things:
* Parcel O does have a shoring permit but nothing more. (It looks like there's one shoring permit for both buildings, one foundation permit in process for both, and then two separate building applications in process.)
* JBG filed its shoring permit for Half Street last week.
* Jair Lynch has shoring and foundation permits in process for Monument Valley.
* Still no approved shoring permit for the NAB HQ or the attached residential building. (Shoring and foundation permits in process for both.)
* Shoring permit in process for 2 I St. (McDonald's)
There's also an early "civil"/infrastructure (water/sewer lines, etc.) permit application now in the pipeline for the Garrett.

btw Google Maps has updated the DMV area, and parts of DC are now 3D (though nothing with a federal presence, or so I'm told). JD Land is looking mighty different than before.
says: (8/1/16 11:07 AM)
Actually, it seems everything east of canal park is 3D, including USDOT HQ.
says: (8/1/16 1:06 PM)
Glad to see Jair Lynch and JBG finally getting their asses in gear...

The 3d Google maps is cool, thanks for sharing. Trees look pretty freaky though.

I like that the 3D view of the Nats stadium was taking during the prep/clean up of the Winter Classic

The WBJ reports that WMATA is considering selling its downtown headquarters adjacent to the Verizon Center. This would be welcome news and could generate revenue for the agency for much-needed maintenance.
If WMATA sells its HQ and relocates, the Capitol Riverfront/Navy Yard would be an obvious choice, given its proximity to both the US DOT and DDOT headquarters. link
says: (8/1/16 3:20 PM)
Wonder if they can still reneg on their plan to sell the Chiller site to MRP Realty.
says: (8/1/16 3:32 PM)
@JD: Good idea, since WMATA already owns that property. I would have to think, as nice as our neighborhood is, commercial property here is less than it is adjacent to the Verizon Ctr.

re: reneging on the sale of the chiller site: Jackson Graham building is 300,000SF ( link
They want new site to be approx. 10% less SF. (same pdf). MRP Realty, which proposed the largest SF usage of the chiller property ( link
is only building 163,000. Assuming MRP Realty isn't leaving anything on the table, the chiller plant site is just too small for WMATA's needs. Also, per the earlier pdf, they are looking at New Carrollton or Anacostia.

Since he's now made it public, here's Mr. JDLand's announcement about his illness:

Continued well wishes to Mr. JDLand, and to JDLand herself.

Please no. this neighborhood doesn't have enough parking spots for all the WMATA employees!

I don't want to upstage our erstwhile blogger but it appears there is equipment for soil testing on the vacant lot behind the charter school, next to the Circulator bus terminus.
says: (8/2/16 8:54 PM)
We talked about Akridge putting that site on the market, didn't we? I assume the soil boring is due diligence for a sale.
The permit for the boring is the top one on my permit list, right next to where I'm typing!

Is this Shake Shack announcement a surprise to everyone? Or was I just not paying attention? link
says: (8/3/16 10:53 AM)
That is indeed a surprise. Wow!
I shall post on it when I am back in position, later today.
