South Capitol at O, Looking East-Southeast (see more)

Saturday was a lovely day for taking a couple of walks with camera in hand, and with work underway at locations that couldn't be any closer to my out-of-neighborhood house, I had no excuse to not get some updated photos of 225 Virginia/200 I, Capitol Quarter Phase 2, Canal Park, and the Little Red Building. (It was also nice chatting with the folks who correctly guessed that the oddball standing in the middle of the street taking photos must have been me.)
The showy demolition work is now well underway at 225 Virginia/200 I, and if the few shots and renderings on the project page aren't enough for you, you can do a virtual walk around the block to see which walls and windows are blown out at this point and to compare the current images with their "befores."
No time is being wasted at Capitol Quarter, where framing has now wrapped around from I to 3rd to K Street on the first block of Phase 2. You can take a "walk" around that block, too, if you haven't lately, or wander through the project page, both of which have plenty of images of the old Capper public housing buildings that were on this block for a very long time. I also added to the database some photos of what will eventually be the intersection of 3rd Place and L, once the new street gets built through its second block south of K. If you're big on old Capper photos, there's a few "before" images of L Street buildings in that sent that haven't been displayed on the site before now.
If photographs of fences are your thing, take a "walk" around the Canal Park perimeter, to see many pictures of the "traffic control" now in place in advance of the start of construction on the park (presuming it ever actually comes). Those barriers are going to put a crimp in some of my standard shooting locations for the next year or so, including where I've stood for the past eight years to take photographs of the Little Red Building, which in its new incarnation is now more of a brick red than the beet red it used to be. ANC commissioner Garber posted on Friday that the roof is going in over the next few days, at which point work on the interior can begin, as it slowly progresses toward becoming "Lot 38 Espresso."
Remember that the Click to see all available photos of this location.icon on any page gets you to the full batch of photos I've taken at any location (which, since I'm getting into the eighth year of doing this, can be kind of voluminous in some spots).
(I know that It seems kind of odd to still be posting photos when so many readers now live in the neighborhood, which of course wasn't always the case. But it's my schtick, and so I continue onward! Plus. there are plenty of people interested in Near Southeast who don't wander around every day--or maybe some of the residents don't know what these spots used to look like before....)

Must have been fun taking out those windows / walls on old Washington Star plant!

I am thinking that Canal Park might have its Federal funding taken away.

It has been 4 years since Eleanor Norton and surrounding developers got federal funding for Canal Park. They had a design..."ready to go." They had to redesign it to bring it to their budget 3 years ago. I am disappointed there is still no site activity although groundbreaking was 6 months ago. I want to see Canal Park built but I fear that with Republicans looking for every dollar to cut out of the budget, Federal funding will be lost (if it has not been lost already)...Can't we get moving with this project? What in the world can be holding it up for so long?

Could you give a history of Canal Park on your website?
(Thank God for the Yards Park!!!!)

First off, I'm pretty sure there's no federal funding for Canal Park, or if there is, it's a very small portion of the total. There's city funding, money from the USDOT payment-in-lieu-of-taxes (PILOT) fund, some bond monies for infrastructure work, and some private funds.

I don't think they would have put up the barricades to close streets if they weren't very close to starting construction.

Could I give a history of Canal Park? link link

Start reading. :) You can start at the end and work forward if you want, to help correct your timeline a bit.

And I am pretty sure they were tearing up the M Street block yesterday, so construction has already started.


MJM says: (4/5/11 10:17 PM)
Did Canal Park lose their funding again? Doesn't appear to have been any progress over the last week or so. They tore up some of the black-top and the little bob-cats have since disappeared unless they are on the same schedule as the LRB II.
