Capitol Riverfront/Navy Yard

This is excellent news. The section of New Jersey Ave, SE between Capitol Hill and the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood can be a bit desolate at night and this will improve connectivity between these two neighborhoods. The rooftop lounge also promises to offer incredible views of the Capitol.

"The Near Southeast development pipeline continues to grow, as plans for a CSX Transportation-owned property begin coming to the fore.

Developer Greystar has applied to deliver a mixed-use hotel to a portion of the 10.85-acre site at 861 New Jersey Avenue SE. The ten-story building will have up to 200 hotel rooms and street-level retail, along with a rooftop lounge. The development team is seeking zoning relief from the build-to line requirements in order to ensure an uninterrupted streetscape along New Jersey Avenue..."

"Infill development in DC historic districts often incorporates existing structures into new multi-family projects. Far less often, existing structures are moved to make way for new multi-family projects. But that is what is happening in Cleveland Park.

Preservation DC and Teass\Warren Architects have teamed up to move a two-story house at the intersection of Wisconsin Avenue and Macomb Street NW, and then incorporate it into a 16-unit residential development..."

Amazon II headquarters

Well, this would be exciting news.

Amazon in advanced talks about putting HQ2 in Northern Virginia, those close to process say

Washington Post

By Jonathan O'Connell and Robert McCartney
November 3, 2018
Washington Post

“Amazon.com has held advanced discussions about the possibility of opening its highly sought-after second headquarters in Crystal City, including how quickly it would move employees there, which buildings it would occupy and how an announcement about the move would be made to the public, according to people close to the process.

The discussions were more detailed than those the company has had regarding other locations in Northern Virginia and some other cities nationally, adding to speculation that the site in Arlington County is a front-runner to land the online retail giant’s second North American headquarters and its 50,000 jobs...”

"A year ago, the Crystal City Business Improvement District (BID) put forth an ambitious proposal to make the city's proximity to National Airport more functional with a pedestrian bridge. It seems that bridge is part of what sold Amazon on Northern Virginia..."

Here are 5 new infrastructure projects we’ll likely get with Amazon

"Amazon's HQ21/2 is coming to Crystal City, Pentagon City, and Potomac Yard, an area that local officials dubbed “National Landing” to avoid writing out three neighborhood names over and over again. Amazon’s arrival will mean at least $195 million in new transportation infrastructure from Virginia, on top of the $570 million it was already planning on investing into the area..."

HQ2 in Crystal City is great news for DC. DC gets the benefit of having Amazon across the river and their employees living in the District, and VA offers all the tax breaks.
