Washington Business Journal passes along the latest on 100 M Street, Opus East's office building that's just about to open. Apparently the building is set to be purchased by Detroit-based MayfieldGentry Realty Advisors LLC on behalf of an unnamed fund they represent, though the financial climate is slowing down completion of the transaction. It's expected to be finalized in January.
Meanwhile, Parsons's transportation unit moves in January 1, occupying the top four floors (30 percent of the building's total square footage). Another 7,400 square feet has been leased by federal contractor Orbis Inc., and WBJ says that "Opus also has signed letters of intent with three more small tenants and has concluded final negotiations with them[...]. Those three leases will absorb an additional 20,000 square feet in the 240,000-square-foot building." SunTrust Bank is also still planning to occupy 3,600-sq-ft of ground-floor retail space.

I mentioned last week that an ANC 6D commissioner said that Artomatic could be coming to Near Southeast in 2009; there's still no official announcement, but a message was just sent out to the Artomatic mailing list inviting people to a Dec. 20 party at Onyx on First: "Gear up with the Artomatic squad for the inside scoop on Artomatic 2009 and find out how you can be involved." The party is from 1 pm to 3 pm, and the e-mail also says that "after the volunteer party we'll head over to Axiom Lounge for the 1st annual Capitol Yards Chili Cook-off." (First I've heard of that event, so I don't have any particulars on it.) One might think it strange that they'd be doing these events in the neighborhood if it weren't going to be Artomatic's home in 2009.
The e-mail also mentions RSVP'ing for the Dec. 20 happy hour on Facebook (which requires you to be logged in)--however, if you visit the event page or the main Artomatic Facebook page and you're not logged in, much of the text appears to be in Norweigan or Finnish or some similar language. Or else I really need new glasses.

Though I'm ready to give a stern talking-to to the folks who thought jam-packing the time just before the holidays with so many events was a good idea, here's a reminder of all that's happening Near Southeast-wise this week:
* On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, the BID is putting on a Holiday Market at 1100 New Jersey Avenue. It will run from 11:30 am to 6 pm, and will feature "local artisans selling handcrafted jewelry, pottery, crafts, watercolors, photography, and more."
* On Tuesday at 6:30 pm is a community meeting on the planning process for Boathouse Row, which I wrote about recently. It's at Watkins Elementary, 420 12th Street, SE, and is being held by the Office of Planning. There's a pile of information from the city on this Master Plan process, if you want more information.
* Also on Tuesday, the city council will be having its final vote on the Taxation Without Representation Street bill, along with a pile of other legislative items they'll be trying to get out of the way before the end of the year.
* On Wednesday at 6:30 pm the Anacostia Community Boathouse Association is having its annual Boathouse Lighting and Community Awards Ceremony. City Administrator Dan Tangherlini will be honored, and then will flip the switch to illuminate the boathouse's holiday lights. The boathouse is at 1115 O Street, SE (between the spans of the 11th Street Bridges).
* The Capitol Riverfront BID is having its Annual Meeting and "State of the Capitol Riverfront" at 11:30 am on Thursday.
* The group of urban planning students at the University of Maryland who have been studying the lower part of Eighth Street will be presenting their "Connect Barracks Row" findings at a public meeting on Thursday from 7:30 pm to 9 pm at the Navy Yard Car Barn, better known as the Blue Castle, at 770 M Street, SE. You can see the presentation from their Oct. 29 community meeting and read a little more about the project on their web site.
These are all listed on my Events Calendar. I wish I could live up to my normal obsessiveness and say that I'm going to be at every one of these, but real life is intervening all over the place.
