More development around that large parking lot that is across the street from the Chipotle and Safeway.

L'Enfant Plaza

This is exciting news for the area around L'Enfant Plaza. Between this, the relocated Spy museum, the proposed redevelopment of the Cotton Annex building into housing, and the Wharf, this part of Southwest is going to change significantly in the next few years.

Hine school retail update (Eastern Market)

The only things that are missing are a barre studio and a place that sells avocado toast.... Good to see more retail in the neighborhood and I'm glad it is not another bank/CVS/dry cleaners.

JRINK, Trickling Springs Creamery, District Veterinary Hospital coming to Hine School Redevelopment Project Near Eastern Market (not to mention Trader Joe’s)

"From a press release:
“The cold-press craze will soon touch down in Eastern Market. Stanton Development and EastBanc, Inc. announced today that DC’s popular fresh-pressed juicery, JRINK, has signed a five-year lease and will open a 471-square-foot specialty shop at 750 C Street, SE. Founded by two former Wall Street women, JRINK makes being healthy, easy, with numerous pop-up shops inside fitness studios across the DC metropolitan area. This is JRINK’s first leased standalone storefront property and will feature its entire assortment of locally-sourced nutritious beverages, as well as new made-to-order items such as smoothies, toasts, and bowls. JRINK is known throughout the national capital region as conveniently delivering farm-to-bottle-to-fridge healthy cold-pressed juices, a method of juicing that puts 30 percent more juice in each bottle with 40 percent more nutrients with no added sugars, preservatives or processing. JRINK is slated to open mid-September at Eastern Market and its new Capitol Hill location will be the company’s flagship site..."

Capitol Riverfront/Navy Yard

Dang! We live in the neighborhood. I support more residential development but I can't imagine the neighbors at 909 NJ Ave immediately adjacent to this are going to be pleased with this proposal.

Tall and Skinny: 34-Unit Development Planned For Site of 10-Year Navy Yard Hold Out

"About ten years ago, the owner of an auto shop in Navy Yard was approached by a residential developer to sell his 2,200 square-foot lot in order to make way for a 230-unit apartment complex. The owner declined to sell, and the developer built the project around the auto shop.

Last month, that same owner finally sold the parcel for just under $2 million to a developer who has slightly smaller residential plans in mind..."

Here is the current view of the building, with the car repair business.

FBI headquarters

The Government Accountability Office published a report today on the replacement of the FBI headquarters.

Status of FBI Headquarters Consolidation and Issues Related to Funding Other Future Projects

GAO-17-783T: Published: Aug 2, 2017. Publicly Released: Aug 2, 2017.

"What GAO Found
In November 2011, GAO reported that, according to General Services Administration (GSA) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) assessments, the FBI's headquarters building (Hoover Building) and its accompanying facilities in Washington, D.C., did not fully support the FBI's long-term security, space, and building condition requirements. Since GAO's report, the assessments have not materially changed, for example:
*Security: GAO's prior work noted that the dispersion of staff in annexes creates security challenges, including where some space was leased by the FBI and other space was leased by nonfederal tenants. Earlier this year, GAO reported the FBI is leasing space in D.C. from foreign owners.

*Space: In 2011, GAO reported that FBI and GSA studies showed that much of the Hoover Building is unusable. GSA noted in its fiscal year 2017 project prospectus for the FBI headquarters consolidation that the Hoover Building cannot be redeveloped to meet the FBI's current needs.

*Building Condition: In GAO's 2011 report, GAO noted that the condition of the Hoover Building was deteriorating, and GSA assessments identified significant recapitalization needs. Since GAO's report and in response to GAO's recommendation, GSA has evaluated its approach to maintaining the building and completed some repairs to ensure safety.

GSA has limited experience in successfully completing swap exchange transactions and chose not to pursue several proposed swap exchanges, most recently the planned swap exchange for the Hoover Building. GSA has developed criteria for determining when to solicit market interest in a swap exchange, in response to recommendations in GAO's 2014 report. In addition, GSA officials told GAO that they planned to improve the swap exchange process, including the property appraisal process, outreach to stakeholders to identify potential risks associated with future projects, and to the extent possible, mitigate such risks. Nevertheless, several factors may continue to limit use of swap exchanges, including market factors, such as the availability of alternative properties and an investor's approach for valuing properties. For example, in reviewing a proposed swap exchange in Washington, D.C., GAO found in a 2016 report that the proposals from two firms valued the two federal buildings involved in the proposed swap substantially less than GSA's appraised property value.

In a 2014 report, GAO identified a number of alternative approaches to funding real property projects. Congress has provided some agencies with specific authorities to use alternative funding mechanisms—including the use of private sector funds or land swaps—for the acquisition, renovation, or disposal of federal real property without full, upfront funding, though GAO has previously reported that upfront funding is the best way to ensure recognition of commitments made in budgeting decisions and maintain fiscal controls. GAO has reported that projects with alternative funding mechanisms present multiple forms of risk that are shared between the agency and any partner or stakeholder. In addition, alternative budgetary structures could be established, such as changing existing or introducing new account structures to fund real property projects."

Here is the link for the full report: http://www.gao.gov/assets/690/686365.pdf

The New York Times had a profile over the weekend of Seth Hurwitz, owner of the 9:30 Club and the Anthem, the new venue under construction at the Wharf. The Anthem is expected to open in October. (apologies for the large size of the photo)

Frederick Douglass bridge replacement

Frederick Douglass is doing great work. He is being recognized more and more these days.

Seriously, this bridge looks great but I am worried that the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts will try its best to make this bridge look dull.

D.C. unveils plans for new Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge. Take a look (video).

By Luz Lazo
Washington Post
Aug. 10, 2017

"The District is set to begin its largest construction project in history: replacing the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge, which opened in 1950 over the Anacostia River and is one of its busiest commuter gateways, carrying 70,000 vehicles across each day.

D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) unveiled the design of the new bridge Thursday, touting it as a major step toward the transformation of the shores of the Anacostia into a world-class waterfront. City officials say the project will spur economic development on both sides of the river..."

Here are a couple of more photos that I took within the past two weeks of development in the Capitol Riverfront/Navy Yard neighborhood.

The first photo is a residential building under construction located across the street from Canal Park and the U.S. DOT headquarters.



The second photo is 99 M Street, an office building located at M and 1st Street, SE.

D.C.'s Former Hebrew Home Will Become Almost 200 Units of Housing, Most Priced at Affordable Levels

Washington City Paper


Image courtesy of the Washington City Paper.

"Eight years after a mental health facility for D.C.'s homeless closed at the site, an 86,000-square-foot historic building in Ward 4 that once also operated as a retirement facility for Jewish residents will be redeveloped through a District-backed plan that will produce more than 180 units of housing. Nearly 150 of those units, or 80 percent, will be affordable, representing a win for housing activists and neighbors who pressed for maximum affordability at 1125 Spring Road NW...."

The Wharf

Greater Greater Washington has an excellent posting about the shared spaces and streets that the Wharf development will offer when it opens in October. I am looking forward to this development and the continued revitalization of the Southwest waterfront.

DC will get nine blocks of “shared streets” this fall


Image courtesy of Greater Greater Washington

"The next street over is named Pearl Street — named after an infamous schooner that set sail from a nearby wharf in 1848, carrying scores of enslaved people attempting to reach freedom. There are no parking garage entrances on Pearl Street, so in the evenings it can be closed off with bollards (note the metal plates) to accommodate crowds of pedestrians going to the neighboring music venues and restaurants."

Randall School

When I was biking to work yesterday, I saw this sign and rendering for the Randall School development on I Street in Southwest, suggesting perhaps that construction will start soon. In addition to providing much-needed housing in a walkable location, this development will help fill in the gap between the Navy Yard/Capitol Riverfront and the 4th Street corridor in Southwest, this development will also provide a public art museum.
