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. The condo building, now known as Envy, is the darker-shared building running to the right, along N Street.
  Jan. 6, 2019 - At last, both 1250 Half and Envy are above ground-level. When building the 55 M office building in 2007, Monument Realty excavated the entire block and built the garage and foundation of the northernmost part of the next phase of its development, which never happened. But that previously built foundation allowed the current development to erect the northern/1250 portion of the skeleton at the same time as foundation work continued on the southern/Envy portion. Now it's all sprouted.

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)
