3rd at M, Looking Southwest (see more)

The siren song of a stunningly clear and breezy Saturday in August was of course irresistible to me, and I walked more than nine miles over four hours to grab a whole lot of pictures from a whole lot of locations. Here's some highlights. Click to enlarge, as always.
It turns out having a public roof space at a central location in the neighborhood is going to be veeeeery handy for me, as it allowed me to grab a great shot of the DC Water Headquarters construction that shows exactly how the new steel is wrapping around the existing O Street Pumping Station. It also allowed me to check on the progress of the excavations at 1250 Half, West Half, and the One M/10 Van combo project in a single shot.
Then there's the Any Minute Now retail offerings, with the Juice Laundry telling Instagram followers that they really are coming soon (really!), and representatives of the new Taylor Gourmet on 1st Street telling nearby office tenants that they expect to open on Aug. 23. We shall see!
Meanwhile, exterior work seems to be starting to wrap up at the 1221 Van residential building just north of the ballpark (and note all that retail space on the first two floors), while the 99 M office building is celebrating its topping out later this month. And while the neighborhood waits with baited breath to see exactly when the Whole Foods build-out will begin at Agora, there are now nice new sidewalks on the stretch of H Street SE that is in the process of materializing.
Finally, there are holes in the ground that now show evidence of the start of vertical construction, so these might be my final downward peeks into the two residential projects at the Yards Parcel O on 4th Street, the large residential project at 2 I Street, and the mixed-income Capper Hope VI apartment building at 3rd and L.
And, finally, while I have no intention of adding the new DC United soccer stadium to my lineup, I was surprised to see how visible it is from just within the JDLand boundaries at South Capitol and Potomac. So, here.
But this is just a very small sample. If you want to see a whole lot more of the shots I took, here's 333 of them. Or follow any of the above links, or click on the projects on the map at the upper right of any JDLand page to see the latest for those projects under construction.

Also, there are now approved excavation permits for both the Garrett (2nd and I) and the Yards Parcel L lot. And a sign permit for Chipotle. And newly approved foundation permits for 10 Van and West Half. Given the very tidy state of the West Half hole, and that there is already an approved crane permit, I would suggest that @202 keep a very close eye on that site.

So nice to see you taking pictures and blogging again!

Thanks, as always, for the pictures and updates, JD! Also, that's quite an impressive trek you took to get them. 9-plus miles! I'll bet that half-time meal at Shake Shack tasted pretty darn good!

May be a silly question, but where is the public roof access?


JD says: (8/9/17 9:09 AM)
The Top of the Yard bar at the Hampton Inn. ("Public" maybe was a mite generous, but still better than needing to organize a visit in advance at other roofs. I like being stealthy. :) )

And @conngs0, yes, that burger and fries hit the spot. Will have to go back for a shake.

Thank you for the updates.

A bit random, but it is slightly creepy that the Capitol Police picked today, of all days, to test the emergency broadcast system.

The photo of the DC United/Audi Field stadium construction is interesting (it seems like everyone went over there this weekend to take photos of it). Buzzard Point is a bit like how the Capitol Riverfront/Navy Yard was 10 - 12 years ago. It will be interesting to see that area develop.
