has created a high-tech animation
of what its under-construction project on the east side of Half Street will look like when completed; some images captured from the animation are now on my Monument Half Street page
. (I'm waiting to find out where the animation will reside, and hopefully will be able to link to it.) Compare the drawings of the Half and M corner with the latest shots from the Half Street construction web cam
, and you'll see that the steel beams are now being put in place that make up the distinctive pattern around the Navy Yard Metro entrance. (But don't look too closely at what's shown for the west/right side of the street, since that's the site of the WMATA Southeastern Bus Garage
, which Monument thought it was going to acquire but which has been won by Akridge
with a $69.25 million bid. And which is now subject of a Monument lawsuit
I've now got a low-bandwidth version of the animation
posted. Please note that in order to not have it be huge file that you'd need an afternoon to download, the animation is not as sharp as the original.
