Monument Realty's vision of Half Street, looking south from M Street. (image courtesy Monument Realty) Monument Realty Ballpark District Projects

In 2004 and 2005, Monument Realty spent upwards of $45 million to purchase a number of properties on the two blocks just north of Nationals Park. The central part of their development, called Monument Half Street, runs along the eastern side of Half Street; its first component, a 275,000-sq-ft office building at 55 M Street, opened in early 2009. The second portion of this first phase, with hotel and residential offerings, however, is on hold. Monument also owns a number of lots on South Capitol between N and M.

Monument owns the land facing N Street on Square 700 between South Capitol and Van, and all of the land along South Capitol except for the four-story Public Storage building. (05/06)

The same location, with the little yellow building gone, and the Amoco station closed. In late 2013, JBG bought this site just north of the ballpark for $17 million, with a residential project the likely result. The Half Street buildings are visible at rear.

It may not look like much, but Monument paid $4.5 million in August 2005 for the land on the southeast corner of South Capitol and M streets, home to a Domino's for a long time. (07/06)

The same location, with Domino's long since demolished. There may be plans for a "1 M Street" office building here. (4/03/12) Click to see all available photos of this location.

The WMATA parking lot purchased by Monument for $22.6 million in August 2008
is nestled between the Public Storage building and what was the Domino's site (bottom right);
for the inaugural season at Nationals Park it was used as season ticket holder parking. (5/6/08)

The northwest corner of Half and N streets, in May 2003. The red brick building in the middle was demolished in (I think) early 2005. The Good and Plenty carryout (right) and its neighbors on the northwest corner of Half and N (directly across from the stadium site) were bought by Monument Realty in 2005 and 2006. (05/03)

The same location, now unrecognizable from what it used to be. But, with the loss of the Southeastern Bus Garage bidding, Monument sold this portion of its Ballpark District holdings to Akridge in late August 2008. (4/03/12) Click to see all available photos of this location.
