The plans for the Arboretum Place have become the Flats at the Atlas District and have broken ground. This mixed use building will be located at 1600 Maryland Ave. just across the Starburst intersection from the eastern end of the H Street Corridor.
Construction is moving along at the old Police Station at 525 9th St and also the old Fire House at 1341 Maryland Ave. The new buildings will be called the Station and The Engine House. The tuckpointing of the Station is nearly complete and the building already looks great from the outside. Construction is expected to continue well into next year.
Movement has finally begun on the vacant lots at 1113-1117 H Street. The property is to be surplussed by the city, which will allow Stan Wall to begin to finalize his plans for a 16 unit development with ground floor retail. There will be a public meeting on the plans to surplus the building on November 10, at the Sherwood Recreation Center (640 10th St NE). Wall will also attend the ANC6A Economic Development and Zoning Committee hearing on October 20 to begin discussions about his plans and designs for the new building.
Finally, the Autozone site at 1207 H Street is pending sale to Western Development. Though Autozone's current lease has yet to expire this represents a very exciting development as the property is one of the most readily developable plots along the eastern end of H Street, but is currently put to poor use. Western Development has done a number of big projects in the DC area, including Gallery Place, the Washington Harbour, and Georgetown Park.
