Two views of the Garrett, first looking north along 2nd Street from I and the second looking back south along 2nd from H. There will be 375 rental units and more than 13,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, as well as shared work space, a rooftop fitness club, and basketball, tennis, and racquetball courts. Residents will also have access to all the other amenities next door at Agora and Park Chelsea, as part of "the Collective."
  Dec. 10, 2017 - In fall 2017, the Garrett's footprint was cleared of its former use as a staging site for construction of both the Park Chelsea and Agora, by December digging was underway.
Aug. 21, 2003 - Looking south down 2nd Street from H Street in August 2003, similar to the second rendering above.
May 24, 2015 - A slightly different angle of the same location, as construction on the Park Chelsea and Agora was continuing. Alas, this photo won't be updated until about 2018, when work on the Virginia Avenue Tunnel allows access to this location again.  Click to see all available photos of this location.
Feb. 3, 2007 - The northwest corner of 2nd and I Streets, back before I Street was constructed between here and New Jersey. The street at left is the old Canal Street.
October 22, 2017 - The same location, with the Park Chelsea and Agora looming, and the Garrett footprint cleared.  Click to see all available photos of this location.
July 18, 2006 - Before work began to redevelop Square 737, Canal Street ran on a strange northwest-then-north path through the block. Here is its intersection with H Street, with New Jersey Avenue laying just beyond the overgrowth.
July 18, 2006 - Looking north at the H/Canal intersection, at the gate into what was for many years a horse stable beneath the SE Freeway. (The stable closed in early 2013.)
