900 Block of H St, NE Getting a 7-11. How long till Construction Begins?

A couple of weeks ago DC Mud reported that:

“The H Street Connection, a 433,000 s.f. residential and retail project that will fill two full blocks along H Street, cleared a major hurdle in its path toward District approval. Developer Parcel Seven Associates (a.k.a. Rappaport Companies), has been given approval recently by the Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC), an event that is certain to make its stock go up when the project goes before the Zoning Commission (ZC) for review.”

When walking by that strip on the 900 block of H St, NE I happened to notice that there was a sign saying that a 7-11 was coming soon to 957 H St, NE. I wonder if that is an old sign or if a 7-11 really is coming before major construction begins. It actually got me thinking about how long it takes many of these projects to kick off after we’ve heard about them. When do you think this section of H St, NE will likely get developed? 5 years, 10 years? More, less?

I started thinking about it after I passed the old Kelsey Gardens spot on 7th Street, NW and realized there has been no progress there after hearing about all the plans. And also the nearby O St. market for that matter…
