For those wondering if the Capper/Carrollsburg
") townhome development would ever get moving.... Today 143 building permit applications were filed
with the DC Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs
for addresses in the eastern half of the Capper land. The applications cover lots for all the areas between 4th and 5th streets where the old Capper buildings have already been demolished, plus the triangular sliver of land along Virginia Avenue. As for when shovels will go in the ground, who knows. And sales aren't expected to begin until summer. I just read somewhere that 100 of these will be market-rate, and 40 will be "workforce housing", but for the life of me I can't find the link. Will keep searching. UPDATE:
Duh, it's on the Capitol Quarter
page itself. I've got to get new glasses.
