3rd at Water St., Looking West-Southwest (see more)

After many weeks of teasing, it's now pretty safe to say that the old trash transfer building at 900 New Jersey Ave. SE is really getting demolished. Click to embiggen:
And some before-and-nows show that the eventual new block of I Street between 2nd and New Jersey is starting to be more than just a dream:
If you haven't been following along, this site spent much of the 1900s as a trash transfer station, before the DC Department of Public Works turned it into an operations area for heavy trucks and plows. The block to the north is going to be developed by William C. Smith, starting with the Park Chelsea apartment building, once some deep (deep!) utilities running below the site get relocated. The block between I and K is part of the Capper/Carrollsburg Hope VI redevelopment footprint, and is slated to eventually have a large mixed-income apartment building, though no announcements have been made of when that might actually happen.
I think it's also now safe to declare it Demolished Building #170 since 2003.
If you're already missing the trash transfer station {snort}, here's my galleries from back in June of its interior and exterior, as pre-demolition abatement was underway.

As a former CHT resident who lived next to that super-inviting facility for two years, this is excellent news. PS - when I visit the old hood these days I don't know what to do with myself without the school buses to orient myself :)

Some great captions, esp. on *Interior* photos.


Maelstrom says: (10/9/12 11:51 AM)
May not be worth mentioning since it's not a teardown - but the McDonalds on I is getting a facelift.


JD says: (10/9/12 11:58 AM)
I mentioned in some tidbits post that this McDonald's redo would be coming, the building permits having been approved not too long ago.


PJY03 says: (10/10/12 10:55 AM)
Part of me will miss the building, as its tear down represents the impending loss of my view of the capitol. It is a long-term positive for the neighborhood, even though the construction on that site is going to take years.


Packinblackandred says: (10/11/12 8:20 AM)
@PJY03 I'm in exactly the same position as you--I've tried to focus on the fact that Canal Park will be very nice to look at once we lose the Capitol view.


Maelstrom says: (10/12/12 1:10 PM)
You know, I am really starting to wonder who bothered to dig THAT deep to place those utilities in the first place. Those pits have been open for four or five months now. Anyone know what they're actually moving down there?
