Demolition has begun of the old Capper Community Center
at 5th and K--this will eventually be replaced with a new two-story 28,000-sq-ft center (see renderings on my page
) that will include a daycare facility for 66 children, a rec center, a computer lab, a gym, a game room, and meeting/classrooms. I'm told that the Spring 2007 issue of Architecture DC
has an article about the center and some renderings, but it's not online and I haven't seen the print version yet; I'll post it here when it's available on their site. I'll add photos of the demolition soon.
Oops, meant to mention that the Community Center's demolition was completedearlier this week. Its page
has been updated again with photos, and it's now Addition #116 to my Demolished Buildings
