New Jersey at H, Looking South (see more)

Using Opening Day as a lure, JBG provided a hard-hat visit to the roof of its under-construction 290-unit apartment building 1221 Van, which is directly across N Street from the Nationals Park and is expected to begin move-ins this fall. The panorama above, while showy, is a wide-angle shot, giving a sense of the full vista from the roof, but at the expense of making everything look farther away.
This image at right is a more accurate representation of the size of the field as your eyes see it. A good chunk of far left field is obscured by the parking garage, but right field is mostly visible.
While you can't see the outfield scoreboard's display, those with good vision can see the scoreboard above the Nats dugout, and perhaps people with good hearing (i.e., not me) could hear the public address system. I did hear the organ a few times.
As for the other views from the roof, you didn't expect me to just take ballpark views, did you? The full gallery of photos is here, but here are a few previews.
Also, I couldn't resist one photo of the workers taking a break to catch some of the action. And a JDLand friend couldn't resist a photo of 1221 Van from inside the ballpark, unaware that the shot also captured a rare glimpse of the official JDLand photographer in action. (The yellow blob. Trust me.)
Check out the full gallery for more shots of the surroundings, and for what the view from the "infinity pool" will look like. And see my 1221 Van project page for renderings, before-and-after photos, and more information. The official web site is 1221van.com.

Perhaps that picture will become as famous as this one

Could def see them up there watching the game

Great update, JD! That area, Half and First, is really becoming the focus of density with tightly packed buildings, all of which are at the max height (IIRC).


Jaybird says: (4/4/17 3:01 PM)
I imagine when all the baseball cameras are here for the ASG 2018, a few will provide this view.


JD says: (4/4/17 3:03 PM)
Actually, by then they may be able to be on top of the two skeletons that should be topped out right at Half and N. (1250 Half and JBG's West Half)


Jaybird says: (4/4/17 3:10 PM)
Thanks JD.

By the way, when all the buildings are built, will the upper deck fans still be able to see the Capitol, or perhaps just certain sections?


JD says: (4/4/17 3:13 PM)
I am guessing those dome views will be gone.


Jaybird says: (4/4/17 3:31 PM)
I guess some folks will like it that way :-)


dude says: (4/5/17 7:43 AM)
Cool!

I'll be there for our first game of the season tonight. With a slightly better view.


ttassa says: (4/6/17 3:53 PM)
I went to the game on Wednesday night; this building is certainly prominent and definitely changes the "skyline" views from inside the ballpark. I'm actually optimistic that some of these views, even though they obscure the Capitol dome, may actually add to the sight lines from some of the seats around the stadium.

The West Half building and Jair Lynch building -- though I'm not sure about the architecture of the latter -- should really complete the profile of the stadium, looking beyond left and center fields. Now what to do with those garages...
