In Sept. 2014, Monument exited Half Street. These were their plans for the site before the sale.

A 2008 rendering showing the northeast corner of Half and N, with two-story retail on the corner, and the residential building wrapping from Half to N. The hotel is on the northern part of the building, at left.
The same Half and N corner as the rendering, in January 2007, just before the start of demolition. (01/07)
December 13, 2014 - And with construction of 55 M long since finished finished, but the southern half of the street languishing. Click to see all available photos of this location.
The view back up Half Street, from N Street, in February 2006. This is where most people will exit the stadium, heading north to the Metro station or elsewhere. By April 2007, most of the buildings seen here were demolished. (02/06) Click to see all available photos of this location.
December 13, 2014 - The same location, as streetscape improvements along N Street change the view considerably, as does the construction of 55 M visible at rear. Click to see all available photos of this location.
Monument's vision of the same location as the two above photos, looking north up Half Street from N Street. Don't expect it to look like this on Opening Day; the right/east side of the street won't be completed before 2009, and the left/west side of the street is still under design and development.


Two stills from the animation showing the retail and streetscape anticipated for Half Street; the image at left shows the southwestern corner of 55 M, at the new Monument Street intersection (the same location shown in the photos above it), with the entrance to the mid-block Hotel on the southeast side of the intersection. The right-hand image shows the two-story retail spaces in the residential building on the southern end of Half.
A wide-angle shot (hence the feeling that everything's about to fall over) showing the eastern side of Half Street between M and N in October 2006. This is where the hotel and residential buildings's ground-floor retail will be. (10/06)
Residences on the eastern side of Half Street between M and N were occupied until mid-2005, and were demolished in November of that year. This is the southern end of Half Street north of N; the blue building at far right marks the start of the ballpark footprint. (01/05)
The same location, a bit more than three years later, on the day of the first exhibition game played at Nationals Park. (3/29/08)
The south end of the Cushing Street alley will be punched through to N Street as part of Monument's redevelopment of this block. This is the Cushing and N "intersection", in December 2006; this lot, which is the southeastern corner of the Monument site, faces the ballpark. (12/06)
December 13, 2014 - The same location, with 55 M completed at rear left, and construction underway on a Hampton Inn hotel at near right. Click to see all available photos of this location.
