noma dig

“Dear PoPville,

Developers started to dig up a parking lot in NoMa but have found brick outlines which are now being carefully sifted through. We’re all really curious to know what they might have found!”

Ed. Note: I asked former ANC Rep Tony Goodman about this and he says it’s the future FCC building at 45 and 55 L Street, NE.

Another reader with a different angle writes:

“it looks like there are old brick foundations/sidewalks beneath the parking lot they are digging up.”

From WMATA:

“Red Line: Single tracking btwn NoMa & Judiciary Sq due to overnight derailed work car. Expect crowding & delays. Consider alternates.”

“MARC & VRE customers: Due to Red Line delays, expect crowding at Union Sta. Consider entering Metro at New Carrollton, L’Enfant Pl, etc.”

Also:

“US Park Police reports the northbound travel lanes on Rock Creek Pkwy (underpass) at K Street NW are blocked due to disabled truck. Updates will follow.”

storey park

“Dear PoPville,

It looks like they are finally getting started on Storey Park (K and 1st NE). There is a large pit right now where a make-shift parking lot has been since the Greyhound Station came down.”

Long time coming – check out the plans here.

Thanks to PJL for updating with the exact location and details about this project:

highline

From a press release:

“Federal Capital Partners® (FCP) has entered into a joint venture with Level 2 Development, LLC and Clark Enterprises, Inc. to develop The Highline, a $100 million apartment community at 320 Florida Avenue, NE in Washington, DC. The community will be comprised of 318 luxury apartment homes including four penthouse units and approximately 10,000 square feet of first floor retail space.

“The Highline is an exciting opportunity in one of the most vibrant and exciting submarkets of Washington, DC,” said Wade Casstevens, FCP Senior Vice President. “We are particularly pleased to be developing this extraordinary project with Level 2 Development and Clark Enterprises, both strong local companies who have done an exceptional job of designing and planning The Highline over the last few years.” Level 2 and FCP recently completed Takoma Central, comprised of 150 premium apartment units above Busboys & Poets and next to the Takoma Metro Station in Takoma, Washington, DC.

Designed by Eric Colbert & Associates, the 12-story, modern-industrial architectural design integrates warehouse-style windows with industrial-framed glass cubes that weave in and out of the Florida Avenue façade at varying depths. The project was inspired by New York’s meatpacking district and the elevated park known as the High Line. Other unique elements of the design include materials reminiscent of rail cars, and steel columns that echo the riveted steel supports of the nearby railroad underpass. Located one block from the NoMa/Gallaudet Red Line Metro Station, The Highline at Union Market will provide a significant pedestrian connection between the NoMa and Union Market neighborhoods through a park it will build adjacent to the project. “This project embraces the history of the Union Market District as well as the railway, while setting a new standard of design for the area”, said David Franco, a principal at Level 2 Development. “We are looking forward to working again with FCP on the project.” (more…)
