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

"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.

"A large residential project could be coming to a local TV headquarters in Friendship Heights.

Donohoe Development recently gave a presentation regarding their plans for the WTTG Fox 5 television station headquarters along Wisconsin Avenue. Assuming the community is supportive, Donohoe plans to seek a map amendment and a planned-unit development that would enable the company to raze and replace the office building and radio tower at 5151 Wisconsin Avenue NW with 280 apartments and 17,000 square feet of commercial space..."

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.
