September 2006 - The old Capper Community Center, on 5th Street between K and L.
March 22, 2007
- The same spot, all gone.
A rendering from early in the planning of what the new community center could look like as seen from 5th Street (with the Marines' parking garage in the background). When completed, the community center will have 18,000 sq ft of space.

- While for a long time it seemed as though the new center would never make it through the pipeine, in April 2014 evidence appeared on the corner of 5th and L that the project was at last moving.
October 2005 - The northwest corner of the old community center, at 5th and K, in October 2005.
- The same spot, with the old community center long since demolished but with construction soon to start on the new building.
May 2003 - The east side of 5th Street, from L Street, in May 2003.
At left, looking north into the Community Center footprint from L Street, with demolition partially completed, in March 2007. Above, a 2007 rendering of what the new community center could look like from L Street. The new building will run the entire length of the block, from K to L Street.
