The "Avec on H," a new multifamily residential building on H Street NE, just hit a major milestone. DC can sometimes seem like a city of cranes. Well, now the Avec (I... I... just can't call it that. I'm calling it 901 H St) has a crane of its own. The excavation isn't quite done, but most major digging is over and some of the concrete basin and lower floors are already starting to take shape.
We now have some of the final numbers for the project: 419 apartment units for rent44,300 square feet of residential space430 parking spaces
901 H makes three 300+ unit residential buildings between 6th & 10th Streets NE. Anthology (625 H St NE) has 307 rental units and the Apollo (600 H St NE) has a whopping 430 rental units. Further away, 501 H St NE will have 28 rental units and the Constellation on H (1402 H St NE; formerly identified as 1401 Florida) will also come in with 28 condo units.
Happy post 4th! Hopefully your neighbors have exhausted their supply of after-midnight fireworks and you've swept the last bits of burnt fire paper from the sidewalk. 363 days until we do it again!
Looking for something new to do now that the fireworks are done? Two reminders: The After Hours photography exhibition at Femme Fatale is back on for another week. The extended run for this show from Marie Emerson means you get another four days to check it out. Head to the Femme Fatale pop-up at 1371 H St NE today, Friday, and Saturday until 10 PM, or Sunday until 6 PM. Free.Capital Fringe starts today! Here's a short write up of the basics, but all you really need to know is that it runs for two weeks at venues across the District and it represents the best in timely experimental theater, poetry, and performance art. July 6-23. Multiple venues & pricing options.
And one last bit of news about our beloved X2 bus: It now runs 24/7! This helps a tiny tiny bit to offset the across…

Capitol Fringe Festival has cemented itself as part of the DC cultural landscape over the past decade. It returns in 2017 at a time when we need the arts find an apt critique, establish a primer for future life experiences, make sense of things, or simply to escape. I hate to say I ever want to "get lost" in the art, but sometimes you want to stay hidden in it, envelop yourself in it, insulated from reality, for however long that lasts. Other times you want it right front and center for deconstruction and interpretation. However you experience and react to art, there will be a lot of it starting this week in the form of the Capital Fringe Festival.
There are too many shows to list them all, but here are a few I'm intrigued by: Ready to Serve: Remember the NursesPresented by Ellouise Schoettler, Spoken Word Artist
