H Street NE, new Giant and Streetcars

The ever developing H Street corridor in NE continues to expand.  A new development just broke ground last week on the 300 block of H Street, NE, which will be home to a new Giant (a 42,000 square foot store), 215 housing units, and all of this will be completed by 2013. 

The streetcar project is well under way, but won't be ready until 2013.  While the tracks have been laid and the streetscape project is just about complete, DC announced it won't be ready to run the program until 2013.  DC is now in negotiations with Amtrak to use the area under the "Hop-Scotch Bridge" as storage for the streetcars, followed by construction of the storage facility.

Looks like 2013 is going to be a big year for the H Street Corridor!
