The Week Ahead… 9th St SE 20 Condo Project Delayed Plus Some News You Probably Missed

By Larry Janezich

9th Street’s Proposed 20 Condo Unit delayed – Last week, ANC6B Planning and Zoning chair Corey Holman announced that the Historic Preservation Office has deferred the case at 417 9th Street, SE, because of an incomplete initial application. The move puts off ANC6B’s consideration at least until June.  CHC reported on the condo project here:

Update on Renovation of Southeast Library – Last Wednesday, the period closed for receipt by DC Library of the responses to its Request for Qualifications – a request for expressions of interest from design/build companies who are qualified for and interested in the $23.5 million renovation of Southeast Library.  DC Library is being close-mouthed about the number of responses, but they will invite some or all of those responses to respond to the forthcoming Request for Proposals.  The project’s time like anticipates the issuing of a Request for Proposals in early spring of 2019, the selection of a design/build team in the spring of 2019, design kick-off in the summer of 2019, closing for construction in early 2021, and re-opening in Fall of 2002.  The community will have an opportunity for input during the design kick-off phase.  See CHC report on the first community meeting last November, here:

Capitol Hill Group Ministry re-names itself – On April 24, Capitol Hill Group Ministry formally changed its name to Everyone Home DC.  Fifty years ago, the organization was founded as a grassroots response by several Capitol Hill churches to collectively address challenges faced by their congregants and communities, and since the 1980s, it’s been focused on meeting the needs of people experiencing homelessness. The new name reflects its core purpose: for everyone in DC to thrive and have quality housing.  The name change will be accompanied by a new logo and website, live as of Thursday, April 25, see here:

    What’s the status of the old Kitchen & Wine restaurant on 13 & East Capitol? It was supposed to be taken over by the owner of several other Italian restaurants but there appears to be no action other than deconstruction and no permits appear to have been issued for renovation. The only action appears to be an pile of rubble in the front window.

    Good question…good luck getting a response!

    They recently posted pics of the planned interior on the windows, so likely still moving ahead, albeit slowly

      Looks like a bigger project than I thought. Seems to be only one guy working on ripping out the old stuff down to the brick. Looks to me like the design could use some”softscape” – it’s going to be another “must speak with raised voice” kind of place.
