Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

It's 2020, the holiday lull is over, we've been plunged back into the real world, and we've got some tidbits to catch up on:
* MAIALINO MARE OPENING: Tuesday night saw the swank pre-opening party, but today is the official arrival of Maialino Mare, the Roman seafood restaurant from the Danny Meyer Restaurant Group. Eater DC got a preview, and it looks like quite an operation. (Hopefully before too long I will learn to spell it, though I might go with MMare.) To start it will be open every day at 5 pm for dinner, though breakfast, lunch, and brunch service are said to be coming. Note that, like all Danny Meyer restaurants, there is no tipping, with menu prices adjusted accordingly. And, with this opening, it is also a safe assumption that....:
* THOMPSON HOTEL OPENING: The first hotel in the Yards, which also happens to be the home of MMare, is officially open as of today as well, Both the hotel and MMare are located at 221 Tingey Street, SE on the north end of what we once called Yards Parcel L. (Anchovy Social, the rooftop bar also from Mr. Meyer, is "expected to open by the end of the winter." Which kind of makes sense.)
As has become a tradition when a new building opens, here's a before-and-after, with the "before" being from May 2004, back before 3rd Street even existed south of Tingey. The "after" picture is alas from a few weeks back. You get the idea, though.
* ESTATE NOW LEASING: As for the Thompson's next-door neighbor, the apartment building known as The Estate is now leasing, and it looks like move-ins might be starting at the end of this month. No announcements of any retail tenants as of yet.
* UPS STORE NOW OPEN: This is probably old news for most residents, but it's still incumbent upon me to mention that The UPS Store opened in mid-December on New Jersey Avenue between L and M (the old Capital One bank space).
* FLOOD ZONE: The District Department of the Environment is looking at amending its Flood Hazard Rules to cover the city's 500-year floodplain rather than just the 100-year, which could include restricting new constructions in those areas. See the city's floodplain map at Urban Turf, and imagine snorkeling to Harris Teeter.
* MONTHLY MEETUPS: The Capitol Riverfront BID has posted its planned monthly Neighborhood Meetups in 2020, starting with a "Skate Through the 80s" event at Canal Park on Thursday, Jan. 23.
* CRIME REPORTS: Yahoo's shutting down of its Groups messed with my running list of crime reports from the neighborhood, but I've now fixed that and gotten caught up. (They are on the home page in the right margin, after you scroll down a bit.) One recent incident that has caused some concern was an armed robbery in one of the parking lots along N Street east of 1st, when two victims were set upon by four men, all in black clothing, who assaulted them before producing a handgun and taking two cell phones. If you want to get more involved in neighborhood safety, the next MPD PSA 106 meeting is on January 28 at 6:30 pm at the Capper Community Center at 5th and K, SE.

Enjoyed dinner at Maialino Mare last night. An excellent and welcome addition to the neighborhood. Food was excellent, and service was very good, with only a few minor second day kinks that are easily forgiven. The pricing is very reasonable when factoring in the no tipping policy.


Sasq says: (1/10/20 10:29 AM)
I had dinner last night at Maialiano as well. The 'no tipping' really takes the pressure off (imo). Service was great from coat check to us walking out the door. Everyone was pleasant, we met one of the managers, Laura,who stated that 75% of the diners were from the area (not me...yet, as I won't move until the eNvy Condos are ready)and that they were very happy to have so many locals, which hopefully means, people will make it one of their neighborhood favorites.The Executive Chef, Rose was very humble and appreciative and went around to speak with guests. The waiter recommended items from the list and was knowledgeable about menu items.

It looks like there is construction on the addition next to the Sonder short-term apartment rental at 816 Potomac Ave SE. JD-- will this be more short-term rentals? I forgot the details about this.

@Sasq hello neighbor. I am moving into envy condos as well (2nd floor). Anyone know what is coming beside the navy ballpark metro station on half street?


Sasq says: (1/10/20 2:11 PM)
@Jscott280 heyyyy neighbor!


bdj says: (1/10/20 5:13 PM)
@Jscott280 if you mean the old Chix place, I believe JD posted a few months back it was going to be a pizza place.


RMP says: (1/11/20 4:00 PM)
I see that the next ANC agenda has a proposal from CM Forgie to make Half St between M and N pedestrian only. I hope that becomes a reality.


JES says: (1/11/20 4:08 PM)
@RMP YES PLEASE.


ValveetaChz says: (1/12/20 4:32 PM)
@RMP I concur!!!


AGH says: (1/13/20 4:34 PM)
@sasq and @Jscott280 - Hello neighbors too! We're also moving into the Envy (any hope by opening day??)


Sasq says: (1/15/20 10:08 AM)
@AGH...Hey there neighbor!!! ***fingers crossed** Look forward to meeting you and @Jscott280


Jscott280 says: (1/15/20 11:31 AM)
@AGH I heard from Laura that the 2nd floor will be settling closer to early March, not sure if this is the current information. Also, urban pace is planning an opening day party for all owners(regardless if they have settled or not).


Looks like they have a lot of work to go around the "hood", but we will see.


JES says: (1/15/20 8:50 PM)
Ventured up to Shaw tonight for the grand opening of Emmy Squared to check it out before our 'hood gets one later this year. Happy to report that it's delicious. link


EnvySquared says: (1/15/20 9:38 PM)
Stopped in at the Thompson bar tonight and was told that Anchovy Social's official opening is the 30th, and the soft opening begins tomorrow (until the 30th) for happy hour daily from 5-8pm. Will try to stop by!


202_cyclist says: (1/16/20 12:59 PM)
JD-- with all of these new neighbors wanting to meet, I remember it has been a long time since there's been a JD Land happy hour.


JD says: (1/16/20 1:00 PM)
I knew this was coming. We'll do something at Anchovy Social when the weather is a little more agreeable.


Sasq says: (1/20/20 6:39 PM)
@Jscott280 and @AGH....went by Envy.... was told that closings will more likely be April and May due to DC permits...


Jscott280 says: (1/21/20 3:39 PM)
@sasq that is a bummer. I heard a tidbit on the retail coming to N Street, but will wait until it is announced.


AGH says: (1/23/20 10:49 AM)
That is a bummer although not entirely unexpected. Now I will aim and cross fingers for Memorial Day. Haha


202_cyclist says: (1/23/20 11:34 AM)
JD-- any update on the movie theater?


202_cyclist says: (1/23/20 11:39 AM)
JD-- I saw this in your listing of building permits. Is the the Garrett or is it the empty lot with construction equipment across the street?

150 I ST SE, WASHINGTON, DC 20003
Owner: SQUARE 737 LLC
Applicant: JASON D DORRIS AH2000499
CONSTRUCTION/MISCELLANEOUS
AFTER HOURS Construction of a new 13 story apartment building with three below grade parking levels, 1st floor retail and amenity areas; 375 units and 181 parking spaces. To include mechanical, electrical, plumbing, elevators and structural work.


JD says: (1/23/20 12:08 PM)
It's the Garrett.


VelocityChris says: (1/23/20 8:39 PM)
202, as much as I'd love that construction trailer being a sign of movement on the 49L Lerner "parking lot", I'd bet it's for the imminent start of construction on 80M to add the extra floors on the roof? At their construction briefing to Velocity the other week they said they were pushing DDOT to permit them to use Cushing for construction staging.
