3rd at K, Looking Southwest (see more)

* DDOT told me these were coming a long time ago, and a reader whose e-mail I've lost gave me a heads up a few weeks back, but now I've finally visited for myself to see that the ugly cyclone fences on the South Capitol and M overpass have been replaced with pretty gray-painted ironwork.
* You have to look kind of closely, but construction has indeed started at Capitol Quarter, with pretty new curbs being installed on the south side of L Street between Fourth and Fifth. You can see them if you squint at the photos on my Capitol Quarter Phase I page.
* The owner of the Third and K Market at, um, Third and K must be keeping track of what's going on nearby, because there's now a For Rent sign tucked in the door. (Alas, all the info sheets were gone when I got there.) If you've ever dreamed of running a corner market, here's your chance. The market's been closed since about 2006.
* The "Wachovia Coming Soon" sign is back in the window at 20 M, so my building permit reading was on the mark. (It's in the window on the far western edge of the building.)
UPDATE: Speaking of 20 M, GlobeSt.com is reporting (tucked in a piece on LEED Gold certification for 1100 New York Avenue) that several leasing deals are pending for 20 M. So perhaps that's why Wachovia has decided to start moving forward.
* I did a bit of needed housingcleaning to the home page map and project directory--adding in 88 K as a "featured project", demoting 1345 South Capitol to "star-only" status until the project starts moving forward again, and adding a few additional stars for projects like the coming retail renovation of 900 M Street.
I also did some updating of the tabs with the lists of projects--if you don't realize the tabs are even there (look just above the map for "Residential/Office/Retail/Hotel"), take some time during this lazy summer to click on them and be stunned and amazed by the easy access to project information....

I know that this is not the correct article to post this comment to, but rather than locate it, I am posting it here. Has the Exxon at 12th and M, SE, closed?


JD says: (6/23/08 3:45 PM)
Yup, it is indeed closed.


KP says: (6/23/08 6:24 PM)
In a similar vein, I noticed the Wendy's on I St is still open. Any word on when it's closing?


rb says: (6/23/08 6:39 PM)
JD,

Thanks. My business went to Virginia today. :-(

There's a gas station at the corner of 9th Street and Pennsylvania Ave (about 7 blocks away). I'm not sure how much more expensive it is than the shuttered 12th & M Street gas station, but it's more convenient than going all the way to VA for gas.

KP:
Wendy's is closing June 30:

rb:
There's an Exxon at 12th and Penn, SE not too far away. And the BP Amoco SWill mentions, at 9th and Penn, SE. (There's also the full-service-only Exxon at 4th and Penn, SE, but I'm sure you value your money too much to use that one!)



rb says: (6/24/08 12:24 AM)
I am aware of all of those gas stations. I live in SW, and I was going to VA anyway. It's hard to believe how many gas stations have closed around here. First it was the two gas stations at 4th and E SW, and now all of them that have been reported on this site.

The For Rent sign on the 3rd & K Market is gone. Do you have info re: if that space has actually been leased/sold?


JD says: (9/25/08 5:36 PM)
Yikes, Bil, what are you doing wandering around way back here? :-)

Haven't heard anything about whether the market is rented. Having the signs come down relatively quickly (I think they've been down for about a month) would seem to be a good sign.
