Construction Updates:

We finally have internet (and mail and trash service) here so the blog is finally back.

Since it's been a while here are some construction updates:

Building #3 is finished from the outside and it looks like they are still working on the interior of this building.  Still looks possible that most will close in August.

Building 4 went vertical in early July (I believe it was July 5th) and they already have the frame up...  But what's really strange here is they only are building 5 of the 9 units.   Four of the units are still just sitting at the foundation.

Here is another shot of the 4 units in building 4 that have not been started for some reason:

Next time I talk to someone from Stanley Martin I will ask about that.  This is the first building they have done this with so there must be some reason.

They are also already getting the front row of the next cluster of buildings foundations started.  (units 40-46)

This is right below building #4... for reference check this:

Aside from the townhouses the thing they have made the most progress in the 50 days we have been here is the bridge to M square.   This seems to have the most folks working on it and it is coming along fast.

Here are some shots of that:

I am hoping when this bridge is done it cuts down my walk to College Park Tennis Club. 

The retail construction seems to be moving on the slow side.   This is what the Gold's Gym looks like as of today and that appears to be the only building they are working on the exterior of right now.

Now that I finally have internet expect more updates soon!

There are signs that both will be here soon so hopefully more updates coming this month.

Retail Opening Dates for Riverdale Park Station:

Here are the retailers opening dates I have been able to gather.

These are the estimates that the companies provided to me in their words. 
  1. Burtons  -  “Early November of 2017”
  2. Jersey Mikes – “4th quarter of 2017”*** (see comment below)
  3. District Taco – “Before the end of 2017”
  4. Habit Burger – “Mid-2018”
  5. Hyatt House Hotel – Early 2020   (listed on website) 
I asked the other retailers that are coming as well but did not get answers from Gold’s or MOD.

If I had to guess on those two based on the other information I have received I would say that MOD would be 4th quarter of 2017  (in the same building as District Taco) and mid-2018 for Gold’s Gym.
