 Sliding from Before to After

Having talked you through the tour of new skeletons, I'll now move to the buildings that have been topped out for a while and are getting their faces on. as I like to say.
* At left, we have what is now known as "Novel South Capitol," previously known as 2 I Street, aka The Building That Took Away McDonald's and Broke JD's Heart. And, as a tidbit for loyal readers who actually read what I write in this posts, I see an approved building permit for phase two of this project, at 4 I Street. (There's a reference in the permit to a name "Velocity"--I assume someone will point out the error of that at some point.) This first phase is a 380-unit apartment building.
* At right, we have the still-as-yet-unnamed mixed-income apartment building at 2nd and L, just a few steps from Canal Park. It is slated to 179ish units, of which 36 will be for public housing residents. This building is part of the huge Capper/Carrollsburg redevelopment, and may before long have DDOT as a sibling on the south side of that block. It's also supposed to have a small amount of retail in the portion of the ground floor that faces the park.
But wait, there's more!
*Transition from beige brick to red brick, we have the latest look at the Bower, the 138-unit condo building at 4th and Tingey in the Yards. This photo is taken from its east side, at what will be a new intersection of 5th and Tingey. And behind the Bower, where you see the green wall covering, we have...
* The Guild (at least we think it's going to be called the Guild), the 190-unit rental building that is actually two parallel towers that run north/south behind the Bower, as more clearly seen in the middle photo. There will be a new block of Water Street running between the Guild and the parking lot, hooking up with the new 5th Street to the east.
* Lastly, I decided to toss in a photo of the back of the new DC Water headquarters, to not only show how the new building wraps around the existing (and still operational) O Street pumping station, but how the back of the building now has colored panels that mimic the front's glass, so that it isn't the stark green monolith that had people a little nervous a few months ago.
Head to the project pages of each of these buildings to see more before and afters, renderings, sliders, and whatnot.
Coming next, a look at two projects that are refusing to adhere to my facile skeletons/facings/holes construct.

Great pics, JD! Does anyone know what is under construction in the space between the Bower and 2 Guild buildings? It's partially covered in white tarp in the picture.

Any reason the DC water building does not have windows on the 'back'? Also, I really like the curves built into the un-named building by canal park. That's visually appealing.


JD says: (6/20/18 4:01 PM)
DC Water needs a "back of the house," I assume. Plus eventually that side will be masked by a movie theater (hahahahah) and residential.

In the meantime, I've decided to stop waiting for Tishman Speyer to let us know what 696 is going to look like.



Joni says: (6/20/18 6:26 PM)
Where is 4 I Street? Right next to 2 I Street is the car wash, and next to that is the city maintenance building, right? I'm so confused.


JD says: (6/20/18 6:29 PM)
It's on the same lot--it will "close the square" with the current building. Their walls will meet.

Just like what will happen with One Hill South Two, and Parc Riverside II, etc. It's just a way to get around not having to build the entire project at once.

I guess there must be a very good price for that beige brick? Not a good look for the building on the north side of block 769N, but whatever. I'm glad to read that there will be some retail on the ground floor though - hoping some additional foot traffic will help the Wiseguys Pizza be more sustainable than its predecessors.

This yellow brick has got to stop. They clearly bought together in bulk. Not a great look for a neighborhood that should have kept an industrial identity.


NavyYardNittany says: (6/25/18 2:27 AM)
All in on the #stoptheyellowbrick campaign. Don’t know why but it screams 1988 to me. Terrible aesthetic for the neighborhood.

Your laughter at the movie theater is gonna make me cry. I’ve been waiting on that theater for years now. Sigh. And when will W___ F__ open?
