ICYMI, the Washington Business Journal reported that the city is considering bringing in a new developer for the Eastern Branch Boys and Girls Club at 261, 17th Street, SE. Many proposals have been put forth over the years, but none have borne fruit. Now Morningstar Community Development has a plan for 35 condos – 5 offered at 50% AMI, six at 80% AMI, and the remaining 24 at 120% AMI. The proposal envisions the city transferring the property to Morningstar for $1 which would permit development. DC regulations require that 30% of the units in developments on city-owned land be affordable. If the DC Council’s Committee on Business and Economic Development approves the deal it would go to the full City Council for consideration. https://www.bizjournals.com/ (Thanks, Jeff Tara)
Also, ICYMI WAPO had an article on Chicago artist Jim Bachor who contracts with individuals and organization to fill potholes with concrete topped with a mosaic. This one, on H Street, NE in front of Solid State Books, was commissioned by #Relist/Wolves Campaign to relist the Rocky Mountain Norther Wolf as an endangered species. Bachlor has installed 108 pieces around the country, including Nashville, Philadelphia, NYC and Los Angeles. For more, go here: http://bit.ly/3ANDGBO
And speaking of installations, here’s Triple Candie’s latest – Spiderwoman’s Theater – on view at the former Li’l Pub, 655 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE.
