Link roundup

The Hill is Home has this update on the redevelopment of the old Fire House on the 1300 block of Maryland. It's being redone as small condo project that preserves historic facade in conjunction with a similar plan from the same group for the old Police Station at 525 9th Street.

DC Urbanturf announced that the city would be auctioning off 18 vacant properties on June 30, including a couple in prime just north of H Street locations at 813 4th Street and 805 7th Street.

DCMud reports that the Washington Center (1005 Third St) opened Wednesday and now provides housing to over 300 students. The story also notes that two other major development projects near H St will open soon, Constitution Square will begin renting its 440 apartments late this summer, and the Loree Grand will also soon open its doors to 212 new residents across the street from The Washington Center at 3rd & K Sts.

Greater Greater Washington has this comprehensive write-up of Tommy Wells new bill to resolve certain obstacles to implementing streetcars on H Street. Wells will introduce the bill today and we'll have more on that here soon. This should help put some of the concerns that were raised during the budget debate over streetcar funding behind us.
