Since the breakneck pace of change in Near Southeast over the past few years has now slowed (though not quite stopped completely), I'm thinking it might be a good time to focus a little more on looking back at exactly what we've seen, especially since some of it flew by so quickly as it happened that we can hardly remember it. I've now added a Random Blog Entry from the JDLand Archives to the bottom of the home page, beneath the set of three random before-and-after photos that have been there for quite some time, making it even *more* worthwhile to scroll down the home page every so often.
I've also now created a JDLand Archive page, where you can more easily get to the month-by-month archive of blog entries since 2003, along with seeing the random blog entry and random photos. (There's a link to it right above the first blog post on the home page.) And yes, each time you reload the page, you get a different entry and set of photos (hence the word "random"). There may be some broken photo links in some of the older blog entries thanks to my reorganizing the photo archive, but other than that, it's kind of cool to watch it all go by again. (I did get my college degree in history, after all.)

With a hat tip to reader M. for seeing that this page has finally gone live (I figured out the URL a few months back, but they hadn't linked to it anywhere yet and hadn't included any drawings), I can point you to Akridge's small info page on 25 M Street, which includes one of the many renderings that Akridge displayed at the ANC and Zoning Commission hearings over the past few months. It's a view of the northern section of the west side of Half Street; at the very far right you can see Lerner's 20 M Street building, if that helps orient you. (It's drawn as if you're standing on Half Street at the very southern corner of 55 M, looking northwest). It shows the two office buildings, with the "Via" being the open space between them. (Not shown is the horseshoe-shaped residential building on the southern end of the block.) You can read my more detailed description of the Akridge plans here, and see my project page for photos of what the site currently looks like (hint: it's the old WMATA Southeastern Bus Garage).
 

The agenda has been sent out (though not yet posted) for Monday's ANC 6D meeting, at 7 pm at St. Augustine's church at 6th and M streets, SW. The only Near Southeast item on the agenda is a vote on the three zoning PUD modifications being sought for the Capper/Carrollsburg redevelopment--they were presented to the ANC back in February, which you can read about here. Other agenda items include updates on the Waterside Mall redevelopment and the Southwest Zoning Planning process, the SunTrust marathon, the proposals for the new firehouse at 4th and School, SW, and the job fair held in Southwest earlier this week for employment at Nationals Park.
