The Exchange at Potomac Yard

Nice write up in Red Brick Town.

Work seems to be progressing nicely, and the buildings are looking quite nice.

Hose bib on brick

So, I haven't been able to find an answer about the best way to secure a hose bib to brick and thought I'd bring it up here.

My hose bib isn't secured to the brick at all, and it just has what they called "hand putty" sealing it off from the elements. I've started to notice the "hand putty" cracking, and I can feel the valve twisting on the pipe in the wall when I turn it on and off.

I'm guessing this isn't the right way to do this, but I can't find a solution to the problem. Has anyone else figured out a better way to secure a hose bib to brick after construction has completed?

Cracking "hand putty"
Something like this would have been helpful during construction, but that ship has sailed.

2401 Conoy

Looks like 2401 Conoy St will be on the market shortly. I think it's a condo, but not sure if it's the upstairs or downstairs unit.

Nice evening for some photos

Neighborhood is looking good. This is how the stretch along Rte 1 is looking in the evening sunlight. The evening light really makes the brink look great!

Looking south along Rte 1

It's really great to see the work progressing on Rte 1, and hopefully we'll have the Bus Rapid Transit in soon and be making progress on the Metro stop along Potomac Ave. 

Nice Write up in Yahoo! Voices!

I think from the article the author lives in the Eclipse with the Harris Teeter at 3600 Glebe in this building:

Nice to see a good review!  There has been amazing progress over the last year or so, and I've been a bit behind in providing updates. Perhaps it's time for a photo safari with some pictures.
