A wonderful presentation of the 2 week project with DC’s Summer Youth and the Office of Planning! Thanks goes out to THEARC and Scott Kratz for assisting with the 11th Street Bridge project.
I tweeted this breaking news back on August 13th, but now we have some more exciting news and great illustrations of the project!
After a few years of starts and stops, we just got word the Donatelli Development is ready to get started on a huge new residential project at Benning Road and Minnesota Avenue NE. The metro adjacent development is going to have over 375 units and the good news is they have secured financing to make sure the project can move forward!

A couple of Conceptual Illustrations by Ed Estes are presented in this recent Blog. Ed’s work is receiving more and more attention from the planning and advocacy community as he provides the illustrations for the DC Office of Planning.
My good blogger friend, “And Now, Anacostia” did a blog post on the idea of a bridge that would be used for strictly pedestrian use. It seems like the idea is not that far-fetched. As you should know, the new 11th Street Bridge will be completed this summer. The assumption was that after the bridge was completed the older bridges would be torn down since there will be no need to drive across them.
