Move-Ins Still Delayed at Capitol Hill Tower
Jun 23, 2006 6:28 PM

There continue to be delays at Capitol Hill Tower residences, with move-in dates having now been pushed back multiple times. I've been getting messages from the increasingly grumpy not-yet-residents, and now one of them has created a blog where shareholders (since it's a co-op) can exchange information about the delays. Please contact the owner that blog with comments or questions, not me, since I'm not at all involved in this. UPDATE: Link changed to reflect new blog URL (now moved to Blogspot).

Ballpark District Master Plan Delays
Jun 23, 2006 3:02 PM
This week's Washington Business Journal has "Developers, AWC Wrestle with Ballpark-Area Plans" (not yet available online). It mentions (just like someone else!) that the unveiling of the Ballpark District Master Plan is now more than two months behind schedule, and that the lack of plan is hampering what is already a pretty complicated venture, especially when you add in the new potential garages deal with Western Development and the fact that the AWC still has not finished negotiating with either WMATA or WASA to get access to their acreages that are considered part of the Ballpark District. AWC head Adrian Washington says he'll have something ready for the council to approve by fall (though it would then need approval by the Zoning Commission as well), but you wonder if Monument Realty (one of the four Master Developers, and the only one that actually owns land within the Ballpark District) is starting to get just an itsy bit antsy to start building and start recouping their $50 million investment....

This Monday (June 26) is the all-important Zoning Commission hearing on the baseball stadium. They appear to have gotten their live webcasts back up, so you can watch it in your fuzzy slippers at home (with the alcoholic drink of your choice close at hand, to ease the pain) via their webcast page, starting at 6:30 pm. Note that the webcasts are not archived, you can only watch it live.
