New Jersey at K, Looking North (see more)

There's a milestone of sorts right now in the Holes report, as the current lineup of excavations for six developments-to-be are all now in the vertical construction phase. (The seventh technically-underway project, Skanska's spec office building at 99 M Street, does not appear to have broken ground, either ceremonially or literally.)
The longest serving member of the holes lineup, 800 New Jersey (aka the Whole Foods Building) continues its slow (did I mention slow?) progress toward reaching ground level on its western side, having hit that milestone on its eastern edge a number of months ago. Meanwhile, the list's first runner-up, 1111 New Jersey (which I suppose someday I'll have to start calling The Gallery at Capitol Riverfront) is pouring concrete and rebar-ing at last. (Do not underestimate the intricacies of excavation and construction near a Metro station.) Here's 800 and 1100, both captured a few days ago:
Then there's the as-yet-unrendering'ed residential project at 909 Half Street, as well as the hole that will sprout both the Residence Inn hotel and F1rst apartment building along 1st Street south of M, all of which were started within weeks of each other in the spring and none of which are small:
Lastly there's the Homewood Suites project at 50 M Street, which despite only going down about two floors has lagged behind its spring cohorts, but which now has a partial concrete floor and some columns, though with a dirt floor still partially in evidence. (See my previous comment about the intricacies of excavation and construction near a Metro station.)
Given how I am getting jolted by the skyline changes from a mere two new skeletons (at Florida Rock and 801 New Jersey), imagine the joltings that are on tap for 2016 as these additional projects rise out of the ground. The image below may help prepare you (and me), with my having marked the locations where the view is going to change.... (UPDATE: Dang it, I had the F1rst and Residence Inn locations swapped. The image is correct now.)

Love that labeled crane picture. Have you done that in the past too? If so, any links?


JD says: (10/12/15 11:04 PM)
I have not labeled any others before now, but here's two that probably do a good job of capturing.

Actually, on the 1st one, I guess Cap Hill Tower has a second crane, so subtract one from the USDOT count.

Cool. Hope those pictures were from a car and not standing there on 395!

Wow, that's a great way to see the changes over time. Love it!

JD - Does 801 not have the same setback as the rest of the buildings on New Jersey? At first I thought it was just the underground garage portion but framing is rising directly above dig hole. Thanks!


JD says: (10/14/15 12:13 PM)
JCHesh, you are correct--they somehow managed to not be covered by the Capitol Gateway Overlay zoning boundaries. You can see in the rendering that along New Jersey there is an overhang above the sidewalk to allow it to be a little wider, and that there will still be tree boxes: link

801 NJ is certainly not set back as far as the other building on NJ. Not sure how they were able to avoid it, though it's likely the developer wouldn't have built the sliver of a building that would be there with the setback.


JChesh says: (10/14/15 12:33 PM)
Thanks JD - just noticed you covered the setback difference in a March post. Becoming much more noticeable in recent weeks.
