Link Roundup

DC Beer finds lots of good beer on and provides a beer guide to H Street.

The Hill is Home's Sharee Lawler reports on the plans to redevelop the former R.L. Christian Library site (1300 H St). The long-term plans call for a four story mixed use development with residential above retail. The old library kiosk is quite small, but the lot it sits on stretches a full block north making it a prime location for redevelopment.

Bikram Yoga Capitol Hill (410 H St) announced free and discounted classes as part of this week's DC Yoga Week.

The Washington Post reports that DC is asking developers to contribute to the costs of the larger streetcar system, noting that the streetcars will provide a great boost to surrounding property values.

The Washington Post reports that DC housing inventory is down and home prices are up over the past year. This certaily fits with what we are seeing and hearing anecotally in the area just south of H Street along the northern edge of Capitol Hill where many houses are going under contract within the first week or so of listing.

DCMud was on hand for the line of applicants looking to land a spot in the artist housing at the Loree Grand, which will provide 200 housing units (with 30 set aside for artists) and retail at 3rd and K Streets NE some time this summer.
