JD Land also has a good post about this.

District Department of Transportation Looking to Move to 250 M

DDOT May Be Headed to New Navy Yard Headquarters

Previously-approved design of 250 M. By Hickok Cole Architects. (Image courtesy of Urban Turf)

"Ground has not yet broken on the office building planned at 250 M Street SE, but it might already have a tenant. The Department of General Services has announced its intent to lease office space at the new buiding for the District Department of Transportation's (DDOT) new headquarters.

DDOT would lease 145,000-165,000 square feet of space for 15 years with an option to renew for an additional five years. WC Smith was granted zoning approval for the office building ten years ago and DDOT is currently headquartered a block away at 55 M Street SE..."

Friendship Heights

This would provide some much-needed housing but upper Northwest has some rabid NIMBYs.

This is pretty significant news. Given how close this is to freight rail tracks and the highway, I am surprised this will include residential. I thought it would be offices and a hotel.

Alex Block has a good Twitter thread analyzing the possibilities for development for the large parcel that Greystar bought from CSX. This land is immediately north of the 70 and 100 I Street residential buildings and is currently being used for CSX’s tunnel construction.

Barrack's Row

This is excellent news. I have long thought that this parking lot is a waste on an otherwise very vibrant corridor.

On Barracks Row: Eyeing Millennials, Investor Will Develop/Redevelop Three 8th Street Properties

June 6, 2018
Capitol Hill Corner
By Larry Janezich


Here’s the rendering of the concept/plan for the Shakespeare parking lot at 526 8th Street, prepared for the Historic Preservation Review Board. The third story will be set back 42 feet from the front of the building. A concept/plan is intended to indicate the massing and scale of a project rather than accurately depict how the building will appear upon completion. The orange building is the location of Garrison’s restaurant – behind and above is Nooshi. (Image courtesy of Capitol Hill Corner)

"Tuesday night, Chris Martin of Martin-Diamond Properties, unveiled a concept/plan for development of the last empty lot on Barracks Row – the Shakespeare parking lot at 526 8th Street, SE. Appearing before ANC6B’s Planning and Zoning Committee in support of an Historic Preservation Application for a proposed new three-story mixed use building, Martin introduced himself to commissioners as the owner of the former Phase 1 tavern at 525 8th Street and said that he has a contract pending for the purchase of the Shakespeare Rehearsal Space at 507 8th Street, SE. Martin-Diamond is a partnered with an international investment company specializing in developing retail properties targeting Millennials..."

L'Enfant Plaza

The General Services administration is auctioning the triangle-shaped lot at 12th Street and Independence Ave, SW. According to GSA, this parcel is .59 acres. This is immediately north of the Cotton Annex building that Douglas Development purchased last year and southwest of the Dept. of Energy headquarters.

Hopefully the developer who purchases this tears up a parking lot and puts up paradise.

Wharf Phase II

I walked down to the Southwest waterfront this past Thursday to get lunch at King Ribs and it looked like demolition of existing structures has started in preparation for Phase II of the Wharf. The former Cantina Marina is in the process of being demolished.

Audi Field

Here are some photos I took of Audi Field and the surrounding street improvements in Buzzard Point. Audi Field is opening in mid-July for the first game. There is now a decent beer garden immediately south of the stadium, where you can watch the World Cup (Vamos Mexico!).



Looking west towards Nationals Park.


Nice dedicated bike lane (this is next to Fort McNair).

Breaking Ground on the Southeast Safeway Development

Breaking Ground on the Southeast Safeway Development

Capitol Hill Corner
By Larry Janezich
June 28, 2018

“Safeway and its developer partner Foulger-Pratt, along with Councilmember Charles Allen, a Mayor’s office rep and the project’s financier dug their shiny new shovels into a long box of sand yesterday, symbolically breaking ground on the Beckert’s Park mixed use development on the site of the Southeast Safeway.

The project will take two years and when complete will deliver 325 luxury apartments, 8,500 square feet of neighborhood retail, and a new and larger Safeway store to the community...”

52-Room Boutique Micro-Hotel Proposed Near Dupont Circle

52-Room Boutique Micro-Hotel Proposed Near Dupont Circle

July 10, 2018
By Nena Perry-Brown
Urban Turf

"A boutique hotel with fairly small rooms is being floated for a commercial strip in Dupont Circle, UrbanTurf has learned.

An application has been filed with the Historic Preservation Office to construct a six-story rear extension to 1827-1829 M Street NW (map), creating 52 micro-hotel rooms. ANC 2B Commissioner Daniel Warwick compared the planned hotel to the Arlo Hotel in New York or BE SixFifty in Toronto.

The resulting building will be 69 feet tall with no penthouse, with the extension adding 12,050 square feet to the existing 9,630 square-foot buildings. The lower level will contain the lobby and reception area of the hotel, as well as a 1,265 square-foot bar and "travel shop", while the first floor will have a fitness room and a 1,680 square-foot café and/or event space..."

Audi Field

SWTLQTC has several photos from the inaugural DC United match at Audi Field this past Saturday.

http://www.swtlqtc.com/2018/07/pictu...inaugural.html

We watched the World Cup at the Field House beer garden across the street from Audi Field this past Saturday and both the stadium and the area around it look great.

Very cool. So much construction going on in the area, I can see like 14 cranes in the Navy Yard area from my window in Chinatown.

Here's a photo I took of a development across the street from the convention center (maybe 8th or 9th Street NW) back in June.

"A previously-approved all-affordable development in Buzzard Point may have a second phase in the pipeline.
