It's a real milestone in the redevelopment of Near Southeast to report that the entire stock of townhouses for sale at Capitol Quarter has now sold out.
The first reservations for units were taken in October 2006 (remember the people camping out?), construction began in summer 2008, Phase 1 finished construction and Phase 2 reservations began in 2010, and now, with construction underway on the last group of houses on L between 3rd and 4th, the finish line for the project is not far away.
The development has been the third phase of the Hope VI redevelopment of the old Capper/Carrollsburg public housing project, replacing the old housing with nearly seven blocks of brightly painted rowhouses, containing not only 130ish market-rate townhouses (a few of which have broken the $1 million barrier) but also 90ish special workforce-rate houses for smaller incomes, in addition to nearly 90 subsidized rental units.
Those units, combined with the 300 built at Capper Seniors #1 and 400 M Street, mean that more than half of the 700 units in the old Capper have now been replaced. The rest are slated to come in five mixed-income apartment buildings, located on the west side of 3rd Street, on L Street south of the Marine Bachelor Enlisted Quarters, and on the DPW/trash transfer station site at New Jersey and K. No timelines have been announced for any of the remaining buildings, but you can see on my main Capper page a map with estimated unit counts for each.
I've taken a lot (a LOT) of photos of the Capper footprint since 2003: my Capitol Quarter Phase 2 and Phase 1 pages give a good overview, or you can just pick a spot along 3rd, 4th, or 5th Streets in my Photo Archive and take a look.

I like how they deepened the blue in the sky when they re-developed Capper/Carrolsburg. Just look between the Nov 17th 2004 and Jul 31st 2011 pictures at 3rd and I (in article) - those sky-painters have been hard at work restoring the rich-ness of color up there.

I've been in the new homes and I admit that they look nice. Not that there's much down there to do right now.

With "No timelines...announced for any of the remaining buildings," it will porbably look like this for many years to come.

I was an overnight camper back in 2006. That group spend the night sitting around in chairs and got to know each other.
We truly were pioneers as we sat around in chairs as the last Capper homes were still standing down the block toward 3rd and L.
Fun to watch the area take shape over the last six years (although it took nearly 3 to close!)...
Made some good friends from that outing!
It is weird to see homes going up where the trailor used to be..

@Kribbles
really? not much to do down there? You're a ten minute walk to Eastern Market/Barracks Row, a 10-15 minute walk to the Nats, and a 5-10 minute walk to Yards Park (which will be full of retail within the next 18 months). Canal Park will be coming within the year and is 5 minutes away.

I lived in Cleveland Park, considered one of the standard "convenient" neighborhoods of NW. There's nothing I did up there that you can't do living in these townhouses. I'd actually argue that with the ballpark so close, and a walkable farmer's market, there's considerably more "to do" in Capitol Quarter. If you're talking about shopping and retail? Well, if what fills in over the next two years is according to schedule and plans, these townhomes will be 1.2 mill when there actually "is something to do".
