This week I've looked at the buildings that are far along
in their construction, and I've looked at the newest topped-off project
, and I've even mentioned the project that is just about to start digging
, so what's left? A mere seven projects that are in their vertical construction phase, at various levels of out-of-the-ground.
Just up the block is 800 New Jersey
, aka the Whole Foods building, which looks just barely out of the ground from New Jersey (below left), but if you venture up 2nd Street (below right) you can see evidence of the ramp for the grocery store parking that will be on the second and third floor. (Resident parking will be below ground, shared with its sibling the Park Chelsea
and the eventual third residential building along the east side of the block.) This building will have about 336 rental units:
Two projects have at least some hint of their first floors built: the 380-unit building at 909 Half Street
will be a lot larger than this small section of construction at Half and I makes it look like at the moment (below left), while the Homewood Suites
at Half and M really does also have a portion of its first floor built, though the nasty late fall shadows make it hard to see.
Next up are three projects that are technically out of the ground, although it's just rebar breaking the plane at the moment, but concrete shouldn't be far behind. Behold terribly unexciting pictures of the status of the F1rst
residential project and the Residence Inn
immediately to its north, plus the Gallery at Capitol Riverfront/
1111 New Jersey.
But if you like photos of holes being dug, you're still in luck. There's now clear evidence of the excavation work at Skanska's 99 M
office building project, and while nothing will ever really arise from the cut-and-cover work on the new portion of the Virginia Avenue Tunnel
(seen here looking west from 5th Street) it's still digging.
In the midst of all of these updates over the past few days, I did some redevelopment of my own, and finally created individual pages for the Square 701
/Not-Ballpark-Square trio of projects, so now you can check out the progress on the Hampton Inn
, F1rst/Residence Inn
, and 99 M
in a less jumbled format.
