Sept. 9, 2019 - A stunning JDLand graphic showing the footprint of the 11-acre site purchased by a development group headed by Greystar in 2018. 1st Street would be extended north of I, and H Street would be built through from New Jersey. Note that only the large portion on the right side of the footprint is currently slated for development.

Visual confirmation that excavation across the entire site has been underway for a few weeks.
Sept. 9, 2019 - There are no renderings publicly available yet, so this site plan showing three buildings will have to do. According to reports, the east building will be a 225-room AC Marriott, the middle building will be both a residential building and a large co-working facility, and the western building will be another residential offering, with about 800 total apartments between the two of them. There will also be a below-ground parking garage with about 300 spaces.
