Within the past few days Monument Realty
has added a couple of new renderings to its Half Street web site (which it's now moved to halfstreet.com
from halfstreetdc.com). The new featured view is looking south down Half Street from M Street, toward the ballpark
, showing the east entrance to the Navy Yard Metro station at left, on the first floor of their 55 M Street office building. This image also gives the first hint of what they might have planned for the west side of the street, if they did indeed win the bidding
for the Southeastern Bus Garage site on the southwest corner of Half and M--I don't see any indication of the garage being preserved. Also, under the "Work" icon
, there's a new image of 55 M, which appears to indicate that they've dispensed with the large LED screens they had originally planned to use to shield the Metro entrance from the street, and are now planning a more standard glass-enclosed entrance. I've added both of these images to my Monument Half Street project page
; I should also note (h/t to reader Tom) that banners advertising the project have now been hung on the fences along Half and M.
