To orient yourself, South Capitol Street at far left, the 11th Street Bridges to the right, and the SE Freeway forms the northern barrier.
A view from November 2006 (not long after the previous image), from MapQuest, showing the progress in just a few weeks on Nationals Park and the start of demolition on the second final buildings at Capper/Carrollsburg between Second and Third streets.
The first post-ballpark image, from spring 2008 (probably May or very late April judging by the progress of the 1015 Half Street hole), from Google, showing the high-water mark of Near Southeast's reconstruction in a mere 18 months since the previous image (not highlighted because there's too many things to mark!). From left: the streetscape changes to South Capitol Street and the lowered Douglass Bridge, demolition at 1325 South Capitol, the completed Nationals Park, Monument's Half Street progress, all sorts of new surface parking lots at The Yards and Capper, JPI's 70/100 I and 909 New Jersey, the Velocity block, Onyx and 100 M, the parking lot in place of the demolished old Capper Seniors, and more. (And it must be a weekend, judging by all those empty parking lots!)
