The glass blocks came out of the large window areas last week, and some big chunks came out of the building's north side this morning, though then the work came to a halt.

I am glad this hideous building is gone. I hope the Taxi garage on L street between South Capitol and half street will be next building to go.

It was actually a nationally award winning trash removal/disposal system when it was first built - gonna be weird to see that gone. I hope the taxi garage at NJ and L St is the next building to go.

Good to see some activity finally, NoMa and U street have gained momentum while our area appears to be running in place, would be nice to see some new condo inventory.
