Trinidad's Art in the Alley is Saturday

DSC_0030

Don't miss Art in the Alley from 6-10pm Tomorrow. It's in the alley between the 1200 blocks of Florida Ave & Morse Street. Bring yourself. Bring your art. Bring your friends. Got food/drink to share? Bring that too! You might also want to bring some cash because I'm told there will be some artists selling their work this time around, and we have some great food available for purchase from vendors. Plus, you will definitely want to donate to next year's Art in the Alley. Hell, you might even want to buy the official t-shirt.

This is a very fun event that we hold twice a year. This year, we've got a great line up of artists, as well as live music. New this year: Tacos Impala, and Curbside Cupcakes will be on hand to sell you food.

HUGE News on development in the 600 block of H Street at this site: http://www.insightpropertygroupllc.com/portfolio/apollo-phase-i-h-street-murrys/ $120 million development (321 residential units, 22,879 square feet of retail) that is slated to replace Murry's. There is another $50 million project (Apollo II) adjacent to Apollo I that will take up the remainder of the north side of the 600 block of H (with 131 residential units and 20,000 square feet of retail). That's 451 new residential units and 43,000 square feet of new retail in one block, folks.

That's one small step for H Street, one giant leap for the whole neighborhood...

shout out to the anonymous PoPville commenter who broke the story (full Pop coverage here: http://www.popville.com/2013/10/from-apolo-theatre-to-murrys-grocery-store-to-120000000-apolo-mixed-use-development/#comments)

Alan- it was known for some time. Murry's and Good Danny's has a long lease that goes until 2017. IF Insight decides to buy them out and push the project forward, THAT would be news. Until than, we have to wait. That is also the site where the rumors of a Whole Foods would be at. I personally dought it. Same with a hotel there.
What is also news is that Insight is the first to purchase the H St Storage site in over 30yrs. -I think-
The 600 Block of H Street is the only block that will be a jump in building height. All other blocks are low scale due to the various types of existing buildings it has.

Derek,

Known by you for some time, perhaps. I didn't know the exact number of residential units and the exact square footage of retail coming to that project until Friday.

Thanks for sharing the news, Alan. I also didn't know the specific details you mentioned. And, because I don't read this blog every day I don't mind repeated news (if that was even the case). Thanks again.

I'm still wondering who will be the first to actually start renting or selling their residential units on street. Talk is cheap. I'm glad "The Woolworth"- or whatever their name is now- has sort of broken ground, but I'm wondering if developers are waiting to see if a street car is actually going to traveling down H Street.

On The Woolsworth (did I spell that right? Like the drug store?):

I saw a lot of work on the site this morning. About a half a dozen construction workers on the site and a digger (correct name?).
