It ain't quite the cherry blossoms, but this year Near Southeast has spiffy fence signage erupting with full color as spring finally has sprung.
Ground zero for the new offerings is 1st Street between M and N (coincidentally, right where all those fans going to Nats Park will see them!).
Skanska has put up a new fence on the west side of the street and big ads for its 99 M
office building (which also now has a web site
, and the first clear rendering I've seen of the building). Click to enlarge:
Then, across the street, the Yards
folks have unveiled their new logo
along with other avatar-ready design elements and hipsteriffic promo photos:
A few blocks away, on the Tingey Street fence that will partially prevent me from watching the construction of Parcel N
(boo), ads for the Twelve12
apartment building offer several tweet-appropriate slogans, though I will try to not add a magic marker-ed hashtag to "Find Your (#)Awesome."
I also got updated photos of the under-construction Park Chelsea
and River Parc
apartment buildings, but since they don't have new pretty signs on their fences they don't make the front page this time.
