August 21, 2014 - A spiffy new rendering of what the new community center should look like as seen from 5th Street (albeit without the Marines' parking garage in the background).
  April 26, 2015 - An angle matching the rendering showing the site with construction underway.
Oct. 29, 2005 - The same angle from back when the old Capper Community Center was still standing. It was demolished in March 2007.
March 12, 2015 - Construction began in the fall of 2014, but it was in March with the framing of the gymnasium on the building's south end when it really became noticeable.
  April 26, 2015 - .... And six weeks later, even more progress was visible.
May 2003 - The east side of 5th Street, from L Street, in May 2003.
Apr 26, 2015 - The same spot. Note also Capper Seniors #1 in the background and the Marine Bachelor Enlisted Quarters parking garage at right.  Click to see all available photos of this location.
