A design for 2 I Street submitted in early 2016 to the city's Board of Zoning Adjustment, showing its location along South Capitol Street, with the Capitol dome to the north. The first phase of the project, along South Capitol, would have 380 rental units. No timeline for construction has been announced.

The state of excavation about four months after the start of digging.
Feb. 11, 2007 - The same angle as the rendering as it looked from about 1985 until February 2017 (albeit with a renovation of the McDonald's in 2012).
Feb. 26, 2017 - The same view, a decade after the previous photo and a few days after the McDonald's was demolished, and with pile-driving already underway.

One of my favorite shots, showing the site as seen from 1015 Half Street
, a few months before the McDonald's was renovated. At right is part of the operations for the Capitol Power Plant (the lovely smokestacked building just on the other side of the Southeast Freeway).
An early 2016 rendering showing the entrance to the project.
A site plan showing both the layout of the ground floor and the two phases of the project, with a potential second phase of 170 rental units, or condos, or perhaps a hotel.
Aug. 14, 2005 - The pre-renovation version of this McDonald's.
Nov. 11, 2012 - .... And as the renovation was finishing up in late 2012.
