Yards developer Forest City Washington is putting out the word that construction is about to begin to transform the Lumber Shed at the Yards Park from its current open-air skeletal structure to the 30,000-square-foot glass-walled retail and office structure that has been in the works for a number of years.
Construction is expected to take 12-14 months, so look for completion probably in early fall 2013. The southeast corner of this building will be home to Osteria Morini, the Italian restaurant from New York City chef Michael White, and Forest City will be moving its offices to the second floor. The ground floor is designed to offer indoor and outdoor seating for five restaurants in all, and apparently a second unnamed offering is expected to be announced later this summer.
Look for fences to be going up around the structure by the end of this week, with actual construction activity probably beginning by early July.
See my Yards Park Phase 2 section for more renderings of the Lumber Shed's final form, along with photos from its faaaaahbulous salmon-exterior days and the more recent stripped down version. There are also plans for two more pavilions directly to the east of the Lumber Shed, though there's no timeframe for them.
And, in other Yards news:
* Kruba Thai and Sushi is expected to open in July in its location on the southwest corner of the Foundry Lofts (directly across from the Lumber Shed).
* The Boilermaker Shops are still expected to open "later this year," with its lineup of Bluejacket Brewery, Willie's Brew and 'Que, Buzz Bakery, Huey's 24-7 Diner, Austin Grill Express, and brb ("be right burger") well known by now, along with a dry cleaners and with spaces for other non-food/service retailers yet to be filled/announced.
* And the 218-unit residential building at 4th and M with the ground-floor Harris Teeter and unnamed-fitness-club-that's-Vida-Fitness is going to be called Twelve12 (for its address, 1212 4th Street SE). Excavation of the site has taken a little longer than expected (thanks to those surprises that kept being dug up), so the official start of construction there is now going to be "later this summer," with the opening in early 2014 (which is pretty much what I kept telling people to anticipate, anyway).

Surprises when digging?

Are you listening CSX?


MJM says: (6/19/12 4:36 PM)
Got to LOC and read about the tunnel construction - great read. There won't be any surprises since the there was nothing there when they built the current tunnel except the Navy Yard tunnel which was destroyed in the early 1900s (near K St).


YardD says: (6/19/12 5:50 PM)
Related to Twelve12 - any word on whether the brick wall will remain in place along M Street? I work at the Navy Yard, and 'get' perhaps, the historical significance of it, but haven't read anything about removing it, or part of it. It's quite the fortress, and in my mind, should go, save for maybe the turret-like corner piece...


JD says: (6/19/12 6:29 PM)
The wall and turret are both being saved. You can already see the work they've done to brace the wall.


conngs0 says: (6/20/12 1:32 PM)
Is the developer required to preserve the wall and turret? Regardless, I think that the blending of the old structure with the new building will look pretty cool when the project is done, and it'll help the building fit into what seems like a theme of the entire area. Awesome to see the neighborhood continue to progress.


F says: (6/20/12 3:23 PM)
The turret is unique and picturesque and probably should be preserved. The rest of it is - lets face it - a brick wall.

MJM => There won't be any surprises. Let the betting begin.


MJM says: (6/20/12 5:11 PM)
One share of CSX stock? :) Only surprises might be the CQ residents and lawsuits...

But on another note - yeah to FCE-A!


YardD says: (6/25/12 10:25 AM)
I can't imagine the new structure actually incorporating the wall in its construction...? Having the building edge that close to the sidewalk/road? The thing has been a safety risk for years, and the added bracing is on top of limited bracing installed when part of it crumbled in 04/05. Will be interesting to see what they do with it.


JD says: (6/25/12 10:46 AM)
No, the wall isn't incorporated into the building structure itself, it's just going to remain standing where it is, with the building going up a few feet to the south of it. It's very very very historic, so there's no way it was coming down. (A small entrance way will be cut through it on M, though, as the rendering shows.)


Capitol Hill SE says: (6/25/12 1:32 PM)
When I was in the park for yoga on Wednesday I saw they had started installing glass panels on the northwestern corner. Very exciting!


JD says: (6/25/12 1:40 PM)
Those panels are indeed way cool--except that they've been there for a number of months now, to show folks how they would look. (Maybe all that yoga cleared your mind to things you haven't been seeing before!)



Capitol Hill SE says: (6/26/12 9:55 AM)
That's weird becuase we did the yoga in the lumbershed the week before (there was a concert on the boardwalk) and I didn't see them then either.
