2nd (Mid) at Tingey, Looking South (see more)

With a zoning hearing coming up later this month, developers Brandywine REIT and Akridge have submitted additional materials to the Zoning Commission on their proposed 25 M Street, a 247,000-square-foot office building on the southwest corner of Half and M Streets, SE, currently home to the north end of the Fairgrounds.
The submissions expand on the details and renderings we first saw a few weeks ago, but the basics remain the same. The building received zoning approvals back in 2009, but now with a change in the development team and with an eye toward shifting desires of office tenants, some modifications to the approvals are being sought, most specifically reducing the distance from the edge of the building to its core to 45 feet to allow for "more natural light flowing into the interior offices," which resulted in the building's gross floor area space being reduced by about 23,000 square feet.
There are also now new terraces on the 3rd, 4th, and 9th floors in addition to the roof, and the building will also have about 21,000 square feet of retail space. However, the planned third underground level of parking has been removed, with the building now having 157 spaces on two levels.
The drawings below show the new design as seen from street level on M Street looking east (left), on Half Street looking west (middle) and on Van Street looking east (right), while the one at the top of this post is the building's Half Street facade and the second is of the view at Half and M. The second and third photos below show the "Via", a pedestrian walk between 25 M and JBG's planned Half Street residential project on the south end of the block.
The design was approved at Monday night's ANC 6D meeting 6-0-0--you can read the full text of the ANC's letter to the Zoning Commission about the project here.
No timetable for construction has been announced, but it is now the third of the three "missing pieces" on the block of Half Street just north of Nats Park to go through the zoning approval process in the past year with a revised design. So maybe the neighborhood's most visible and most lagging block will be on its way to completion by the time the stadium celebrates its 10th anniversary--and hosts the All-Star Game--in 2018.

I think the building looks really great, but I'm disappointed they reduced the parking capacity.

Wow, I think this building, and the other buildings on half, look great. Can't wait to see the completed versions, but I'm pessimistic they will be completed by the 2018 ASG.

I cannot wait to talk past THIS, instead of what's currently there. What an eyesore those containers have become. This, plus NAB building and the finished hotel on the opposite corner, will go a long, long way to making M and Half more attractive.

Sorry I had to plagiarize, perfect comment!

You talk past it and I'll walk past it.

Looks good!

ha MJM. I was reading 'your' comment and thinking 'hey, this sounds awfully like MY comment.' Then I got to your disclaimer and laughed.

Wafted seeing bjarke ingels' designs on 60 minutes last week, I think this neighborhood is sorely in need of some fresher designs. His New York building models are breathtaking and innovative!
