Wasting no time after the permits were approved last week, JPI has within the past few days put up a construction crane now towering over the Southeast Freeway at 70 I Street
, where the digging down for the company's 448-unit residential project must be pretty close to done. I imagine there will eventually be another crane for 100 I Street
(the companion 246-unit building) within a few months.
A few blocks to the south at the Nationals ballpark
, the roof canopy has started to be installed--they've even repositioned the Stadium Construction Cam
to give a good view of the work. Before long, the lighting that will sit beneath the canopy will start to be put in place as well.
But be careful while you're wandering around looking upward at these new sites--some monster potholes have erupted as the temperatures have warmed. If you do the circuit around the stadium site, this is your fair warning to drive incredibly slowly until the holes get filled in, because otherwise your car is a-gonna-get swallowed.
