You can see a rendering of the planned development here.
“Park Van Ness (formerly Van Ness Square) has a prestigious and convenient Connecticut Avenue location, as well as a quiet park-like setting normally found only in the suburbs. The Company recently received demolition permits and expects to raze the existing structures beginning in the fourth quarter 2013.
The Company has entered into an arrangement with a general contractor and intends to develop a 271-unit residential project with approximately 9,000 square feet of street-level retail, below street-level structured parking, and amenities including a community room, landscaped courtyards, a fitness room and a rooftoop pool and deck. Construction is projected to be completed in late 2015.”

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please shoot me an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 3-4 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit.

Ed. Note: This is an old pop up from 2008 on P St, NE
My block in Shaw has fortunately been spared from all the popups … until now. I just noticed a house under construction just erected the start of a pop-up. Since it has literally just started, is there a way that I can check or even oppose its permits? I never saw any notices on it before now.”
Ed. Note: Last month we discussed if pop ups should be legislated.

From a press release:
“David M. Rubenstein, Chairman of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, today announced an additional $40 million in gifts for the Kennedy Center expansion project, including a significant leadership pledge from Michael and Noémi Neidorff and the Centene Charitable Foundation. Mr. Neidorff and David Rubenstein serve as co-chairs of the expansion project’s capital campaign. With these new commitments and the initial $50 million pledge from Mr. Rubenstein, $90 million has been raised for the Kennedy Center’s $125 million campaign. As previously announced, the design and construction costs for the expansion project will be paid for entirely with private funds.
The Kennedy Center’s expansion project will be constructed south of the existing facility and will include rehearsal space as well as dedicated classroom space and multipurpose rooms for the Center’s extensive arts education programs. Public access spaces will include gardens which will fuse the Kennedy Center with the landscape and river and an outdoor video wall upon which simulcast performances and other multimedia events may be projected. The exteriors will utilize translucent Okalux, glass, and Carrara marble, the same Italian marble which clads the original facility.
The expansion is being designed by Steven Holl and senior partner Chris McVoy of Steven Holl Architects of New York in partnership with BNIM Architects of Kansas City. The expansion is currently in design development and groundbreaking is expected in late 2014. Construction is expected to be completed in 2017.”

“After a quick search of the DPW website, I can’t find any rules allowing / prohibiting recycling or trashing used cooking oil, either in residential pickup or at Ft Totten. I have a couple of gallons left over from frying a turkey, and I won’t use it again till next year, at which time it will no longer be good. Does anyone know where I can get rid of it?”
