During the five minutes it was sunny this afternoon, I managed to get some updated photos of the demolition at old Capper Seniors,
where the work is still concentrated on the western side of the building. Within the past day or two the wrecking ball has sliced a hole in the main portion of the building, leaving the old southwest wing standing alone and temporarily making the tower into two buildings. Soon they'll be starting on the still-bricked elevator shaft in the center of the building on the north side. (I wouldn't park my car too close to there for the next few days.) Check the Expanded Project Archive
if you want more angles of the progress, though they didn't all get updated today. And remember to click on the
icon to see all
the photos in the archive from a vantage point--the progression of shots looking south at the building
from across L Street are pretty intriguing. They've gotten a lot done in eight days....
