 Page Through from Before to After

In the past few posts I've shown you the neighborhood's newest skeletons/skeletons to be, I've shown you buildings that are topped out but still getting exterior work done, and holes in the ground, and I know you are long since bored of this stretch of posts, but I will still do one more, looking at two projects that between them are managing to fall into all categories at once.
Plus, they are probably the two most watched projects in the neighborhood at the moment.
These are two views of JBG Smith's West Half 420-unit residential development, which, if I can count floors correctly, is still not yet topped out, but which, as seen in the second photo, is already hanging glass on the lower floors, presumably to protect the spaces from the roving gangs of All-Star hooligans that will descend next month. I think both photos do a good job of showing the very unique structure of this building, as it appears from the north to be funneling down into the ballpark. It also looks like the corner of the building facing the ballpark is prepped to have some signage hung. Digital? Temporary? Permanent? We Shall See! This building is expected to have about 65,000 square feet of retail on its first two floors.
And, across the way, we have:
The east side of the street will be home to 1250 Half Street, a residential project that is both a nearly topped-out skeleton (on the north end of the site) and a still-not-yet-out-of-the-ground hole to peer into (on the south end of the site). It is actually all one building, it's just that the foundation was built on the north end back when Monument Realty had plans to develop the rest of the block as it was building the 55 M office building, before, well, you know, Things Happened. So this allowed Jair Lynch Development Partners to plow ahead with above-ground work there while prepping the rest of the former Monument Valley hole to go vertical. This building will have as many as 440 rental units and over 60,000 square feet of retail (including anchor tenant Punch Bowl Social) when it's finished, though I should note that it is going to be completed in two phases, with construction of the phase two "boutique residential building" facing N Street coming later.
And here's what both will look like to people exiting the ballpark when they are finished.
Which is a little different from:
With that, I am done running down all of the latest construction statuses (statusi?). If you are worn out, don't blame me, blame the SEVENTEEN separate construction projects underway (19 if you include the Virginia Avenue Tunnel and the new South Capitol Street bridge).

How long before the Nats debut your “JDLand All-Star Hooligan“ merchandise line?


RMP says: (6/22/18 8:17 AM)
TIL that One Hill South is apparently very popular among a certain demographic. link

@RMP— BARF! BARF! and BARF!


202_cyclist says: (6/22/18 9:26 AM)
Well, One Hill South looks a lot more comfortable than a baby prison.


malatesta says: (6/22/18 9:55 AM)
That's, uh, not a very good article. It's correct in that I know there's plenty of people in my building who are staffers on the hill or at the white house. But I think badly mischaracterizes the neighborhood to push the weird narrative of the article.


JD says: (6/22/18 10:39 AM)
And since I skipped writing about the new Douglass Bridge, here's a good piece about the design and construction of the new bridge from an engineering point of view: link


202_cyclist says: (6/22/18 11:00 AM)
JD-- thank you for posting the article. I'm impressed by the engineering required to build the bridge. Also, that is a good aerial photo of the neighborhood in the article.


jdc says: (6/22/18 2:27 PM)
Sigh. If only, as shown in that photo, that segment of Half Street would be closed and turned into a short pedestrian mall. Whoever is living in all of these apartments seem to a) love pooches and b) love expensive cars.


NavyYardRes says: (6/24/18 9:22 AM)
From the Bridge article - "Traffic ovals will be created at each end and sections of South Capitol Street will be re-created as a scenic boulevard." - Do we really think a scenic blvd. design is best for the fastest and densest neighborhoods in DC. This is going to be a major bottleneck. They should tunnel from highway to bridge, straight shot.


JD says: (6/24/18 9:24 AM)
A tunnel was actually discussed back when I first started doing it. Prohibitively expensive.

And if they go through with getting rid of the M Street underpass, South Capitol will be a lot slower. :)


caphillguy says: (6/27/18 10:27 AM)
I'm confused about what the above says about 1250 Half Street. It's one building but it's being built in two phases with the second starting later? How does that work? Am I misinterpreting that?


JD says: (6/27/18 10:31 AM)
If you look very closely at the rendering, you can see that the Half Street facade and the N Street facade fit together but don't fully connect (and you can see the dark brick wall on the N Street portion). There was originally talk of the N Street portion being condos, and maybe they are hedging that decision by referring to it now as a "boutique residential" building.
