Small Retail Bays Getting Prepped on Yards Park Boardwalk, Forest City Looking for Tenants
Feb 1, 2011 11:11 AM
Eagle-eyed Twitterer @kpbrady alerted me yesterday to doors and windows being installed in the lower level of the overlook at the Yards Park, in the bays along the boardwalk that were designed to be retail spaces.
I contacted Forest City, and they've told me that they are intending to have "seasonal tenant offerings" in these spots starting (hopefully) this year. There are 4 to 6 of these spaces (depending on how layouts and done), ranging from 366 to 506 square feet, and Forest City is anticipating they would be used for refreshment/light food sales and/or recreational equipment rentals--but they're open to discussing other uses. If you have your heart set on one (for perhaps a banana stand or some other offering), contact Brenda Temple at Forest City at (202) 496-6600.
Eventually the (currently naked) Lumber Storage Shed will be a retail pavilion, and later phases call for two additional retail buildings to be constructed just to the east of the shed (see the renderings way down at the bottom of my Yards Park page). And there will be ground-floor retail space at the Foundry Lofts just to the north of the park when that building opens later this year, not to mention 46,000 sq ft of retail space at the Boilermaker Shops.

Building at 1010 3rd St., SE Hit by Fire
Feb 1, 2011 10:51 AM
Readers passed along the news early this morning (while your night owl blogger slept) of a fire in the two-story multi-unit building at 1010 3rd St., SE, four doors south of Cornercopia, in the block of existing private homes within the Capper/Carrollsburg footprint. You can see the smoke rising above the block before dawn, as well as the state of the building once the fire was out. Tweets from DC Fire/EMS say that there were no injuries, but three people have been displaced.
UPDATE: Here are some more photos, from just after the fire was put out, from a neighbor across the alley.
