In Sept. 2014, Monument exited Half Street, selling the hole on the east side of Half Street
to a joint venture between MacFarlane Partners and the Jair Lynch development company.

Sept. 2014 - The northeast corner of Half and N, showing why the site has been dubbed "Monument Valley." When building the 55 M office building in 2007, Monument excavated the entire block, with plans to finish its Half Street development with a hotel and two residential buildings. But work stopped after the excavation, and Mother Nature took over the site.
  In early 2015, the new owners submitted for zoning review a revamped plan for the site, offering as many as 445 residential units (both rental and condo) and over 60,000 square feet of retail.
  A rendering from May 2015 showing how the building will impact the view from inside Nats Park.
The same Half and N corner as the rendering, in May 2006. (5/27/06)
April 26, 2015 - And with construction of 55 M long since finished finished, and with a Hampton Inn going up to the east. Click to see all available photos of this location.
A drawing from the February 2015 zoning submission showing the frontage along Half Street, looking south toward Nats Park.
What the same frontage looked like a decade ago. These 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 was demolished as part of construction of Nats Park. (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 the 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)
April 26, 2015 - 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.
The view back up Half Street, from N Street, in February 2006. By April 2007, most of the buildings seen here were demolished. (02/06) Click to see all available photos of this location.
April 26, 2015 - The same location, slightly different. Click to see all available photos of this location.
