A Couple Quick Items: Southwest Neighborhood Night at Nats Park, Wharf Micro Units

The Washington Nationals will have their annual Southwest Neighborhood Night when they play the Milwaukee Brewers on July 2 (which happens to be my birthday) at Nationals Park. Local community members will be honored during the game. Discounted tickets are available in certain sections for area residents. Use the coupon code SOUTHWEST when purchasing tickets.

Another article about the micro units that are planned for some of the rental apartment units at parcel 2 in The Wharf, this time in Urban Turf. Parcel 2 is the large apartment building with the Wharf Center venue on the bottom levels at 9th Street and Maine Avenue. According to the article, about 17% of the units will be small studio units between 330 and 380 square feet. From the article:
At The Wharf, built-ins will fill up one entire wall, from the doorway to the window. Shelves for books, an armoire for clothing, a sleek kitchen and a Murphy bed that turns into a couch and shelf at night allow residents to make better use of the available floor space..Rather than swinging doors, the Wharf units will have a sliding barn door. The bathroom will have natural light coming through a translucent glass wall near the shower.
