In early 2015, the new owners submitted for zoning review a revamped plan for the site, offering 440 residential units (both rental and condo) and over 60,000 square feet of retail. Construction began in February 2017.

  June 16, 2018 - This is not an easy hole to photograph.
  June 16, 2018 - A closeup of the construction underway on the north end of the site. Nats Park is seen at the end of the block. When building the 55 M office building in 2007, Monument Realty excavated the entire block, with plans to finish its Half Street development with a hotel and two residential buildings. But work stopped after the excavation, Mother Nature took over the site, and in 2014 Monument sold the lot. Construction began in summer 2017. Note that vertical construction is already well above ground at the far left of the photo--this is where the foundation was built back in 2007, so construction can head upward there while work in the hole continues.
A rendering from May 2015 showing how the building will impact the view from inside Nats Park.
The south end of the Cushing Street alley will be punched through to N Street as part of the redevelopment of this block. This is the Cushing and N "intersection", in December 2006; this lot, which is the southeastern corner of the Monument site, faces the ballpark. (12/06)
June 16, 2018 - The same location, with 55 M completed at rear left, and the F1rst apartment building at right. The new project will actually span Cushing. Click to see all available photos of this location.
The same Half and N corner as the rendering, in May 2006. (5/27/06)
June 16, 2018 - And with construction of 55 M long since finished finished, and new neighbors to the rear along 1st Street now towering. Click to see all available photos of this location.
A drawing from the February 2015 zoning submission showing the frontage along Half Street, looking south toward Nats Park.
What the same frontage looked like a decade ago. These residences on the eastern side of Half Street between M and N were occupied until mid-2005, and were demolished in November of that year. This is the southern end of Half Street north of N; the blue building at far right was demolished as part of construction of Nats Park. (01/05)
The same location, a bit more than three years later, on the day of the first exhibition game played at Nationals Park. (3/29/08)
The view back up Half Street, from N Street, in February 2006. By April 2007, most of the buildings seen here were demolished. (02/06) Click to see all available photos of this location.
June 16, 2018 - The same location, slightly different. Click to see all available photos of this location.
