 Sliding from Before to After

As someone who has, shall we say, a pretty firm grasp on the plans and locations for new buildings in the neighborhood, I admit to a jolt here or there when skeletons arise and become visible--especially in spots at which I hadn't yet imagined seeing them.
With the residential buildings at Florida Rock and 801 New Jersey now in the showy above-ground portion of construction, I got jolted quite a few times during a four-hour walk around the neighborhood on Sunday to catch up on photos.
Here's a few images that perhaps might jolt you too, starting with the one above, looking directly at Dock 79 from the DC Water bridge along the Riverwalk, which also should be compared to this view from just before the final demolition of the concrete plant. And while there's this one that I've been waiting to see, looking east along Potomac Avenue from South Capitol Street, with work on the top floor now underway, there's also the "surprise" view from the Yards Park (click to enlarge):
Dock 79 is also quite visible now when looking south along 1st Street, and even from New Jersey and M (in person, not with a wideish-angle lens!).
As for 801 New Jersey, it hasn't risen more than a couple floors, but it's still starting to show itself at locations other than the intersection of New Jersey and I--like along K Street, at 1st and at 2nd Place (I've added a small helpful pointer in case you aren't seeing it). It's going up a total of 13 floors, so it's only going to get more noticeable from more locations.
Of course, if a favored view is being eclipsed by this "progress," my sympathies. At least someone thought to take "before" photos.
(PS: The Reader Poll will be closing soon, so hurry up and vote. Tell us your favorite haunts around the 'Hood, and tell me a little about yourself. Pretty please? There may be a coveted JDLand t-shirt in it for you!)

Whatever it looks like in the end, both Canal and Yards park will be nice sanctuaries amongst the tall buildings.

Absolutely. Definitely thankful that those parks were in the plans from the beginning. The NoMa developers didn't think about that and now it looks like that neighborhood will be devoid of any good sanctuary / green space. They still got the REI that I wanted for our neighborhood though!

Why is there such a large gap on I between 801 NJ and 70I? Will anything ever infill there, or is it destined to just look weird for all eternity?


JD says: (10/12/15 11:44 AM)
That land is owned by CSX, so you be the judge. :-)

Wow, what a difference a few weeks makes. Can't believe Dock79 is rising so fast. Pretty soon they'll be topping off.
