The second camera angle at the Stadium Web Cam site
is back in business, providing a full view of the press box that's now been painted red as well as complete coverage of far left field, where it looks like the turf installation will be completed today. To see it, choose "Centerfield" in the dropdown box at the top of the page.
UPDATE: And the turf is now finished. Kinda looks like a baseball stadium now!
A notice in this week's District Register
says that JPI has applied to remediate the land it recently purchased at 23 I Street
, as part of the District Department of the Environment's Voluntary CleanUp Program
. Quoting: "The application identifies low to elevated levels of Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH) and Benzene in soil and TPH, Benzene, and methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) in groundwater." JPI is planning a 420-unit residential building with ground-floor retail on the site, with construction expected to begin sometime in 2008. The VCP application for 23 I is not yet online, but you can see JPI's 2005 application for 100 I Street
and the city's 2006 application to clean up the stadium site
to get the idea.
