Having gotten out of the way the vertical construction going on behind neighborhood fences
, we can now move on to the "clearing" portion of this fence survey.
The roof of Nats Parking Garage C
gives a great view of Yards Parcel A
, and how far the site clearing has come along since the final days of Spooky Building 213.
Next up will be the creation of a park on the far end of the site, a parking lot in the corner closest to this intersection, and the new home for Trapeze School New York at far right. (Here's a map
if that's too many words.)
Meanwhile, along New Jersey Avenue....
) Up in Whole Foods land at 800 New Jersey Avenue
, the hole is still being dug. But the new block of H Street between New Jersey and 2nd is looking like a real street, though no doubt it will continue to taunt us by remaining closed throughout the construction of 800 NJ, like its sibling I Street a block to the south has sat unopened, waiting for the Park Chelsea
construction to finish.
Next, do you like construction trailers? How about construction trailers on sites where work isn't yet underway?
) Here's the Capper Community Center
site at 5th and K, where a ceremonial groundbreaking a few weeks back was not quite enough to jolt the project into action.
) Looking down upon the vast Florida Rock
footprint from the ballpark, and noting the new construction trailer visible at the far end. As I mentioned a few days ago
, there's not as yet been an announcement of construction financing for the planned first-phase 350-unit apartment building, nor are the initial necessary building permits approved.
