I've been coveting electronic versions of the newer twilight-styled renderings of upcoming Yards
projects, which have been taunting me from the fence drapings along Tingey and Fourth streets; and now I've gotten my mitts on them. Above is an overhead shot of the Waterfront Park
, showing not only the various landmarks planned for this stretch along the Anacostia, but also perhaps a first peek or two at designs for some of the later-phase buildings to the north of the 5.8-acre park. I've also now got dusk-time renderings for the brown-and-white Pattern Shop Lofts
apartment building and the retail-to-be Boilermaker Shop
. All three of these projects should open in 2009 (though the park's piers and retail pavilions will be happening in future phases).
