100 M Street, the 240,000-sq-ft office building completed in late 2008.
100 M Street

Square 0743N, which is home to the eastern entrance to the Navy Yard metro station, is currently home to new office building 100 M (completed in late 2008) and the Onyx on First apartment building, which opened in 2009. In late 2013 Donohoe announced that its 1111 New Jersey Ave. project would convert from a planned 220,000-sq-ft office building to a 324-unit residential building. Construction could begin in 2014, though it will require the demolition of the St. Matthew's Baptist Church at New Jersey and L.

Looking from the southwest at the 1st and M intersection, in August 2006. (08/06)

The same location, under construction. 100 M is the building in the forefront; Onyx on First is at rear. (5/26/13) Click to see all available photos of this location.

In 2012, it was officially announced (after months of rumors) that brewery and restaurant Gordon Biersch was coming to the corner ground-floor retail space at 100 M. It is opening on April 1, 2013. See more interior photos in this gallery. (3/28/13) 

The seating area, looking toward the bar and the windows along M Street. See more interior photos in this gallery. (3/28/13) 

One block north of Nationals Park. Really! See more interior photos in this gallery. (3/28/13) 

SunTrust Bank opened in 100 M's ground floor in the summer of 2009. (4/13/09)

Square 743N, seen from overhead, in March 2006; St. Matthew's Baptist Church is at bottom, the parking lot is the 1111 New Jersey site, and the Onyx lot is at the right rear of the block. (03/06)

The same location, two years later, with 100 M (left) and Onyx (right) a few months from completion. At the very top left of the photo you can see the stadium. (11/17/08) Click to see all available photos of this location.

A one-block-away view of the 100 M site, this time standing at Cushing and M and looking to the northeast. (02/06)

The same location (backed up a bit), completed. (10/27/13) Click to see all available photos of this location.

Looking west along M Street from between New Jersey Avenue and First Street, in February 2006. The low-rise white building at center is the On Luck Cafeteria, marking the corner of the 100 M site. (05/06)

The same location, almost complete. (Note also 20 M now completed down the street.) (3/21/09) Click to see all available photos of this location.

100 M's lobby, seen in December 2008 as the building was just preparing to open. (12/18/08)

The view to the southeast from the 10th floor, looking at the US Department of Transporation, DC Water, and a smidgen of the Yards Park by the Anacostia River. (12/18/08)

Looking from 100 M's top floor down 1st Street, toward Nationals Park, the Douglass Bridge, and the Anacostia River.(12/18/08)

100 M is quite easily seen as one looks up First Street from the Frederick Douglass Bridge. (6/5/08)

The construction of Onyx and 100 M is visible from inside the Nationals ballpark, although the parking garages and other nearby construction have obscured the view. (8/3/08) Click to see all available photos of this location.

The On Luck Cafeteria held out at 1st and M for a long time.... (05/04)

But the owner accepted a purchase offer of $4.5 million in February 2006, and in September of that year On Luck (and the Zohery Bus Tours garage beside it) was demolished. Now 100 M has taken over the landscape. (5/10/09)

A cropped photo from Sept. 2000 showing the corner of 1st and M; note that past On Luck and the "Auto Wholesale" sign is a rowhome, standing alone. This is on that triangle of property next to the alley that Opus East was unable to buy; the structure was demolished sometime before 2003. (09/00)

Townhouses along 1st Street, in August 2004. (08/04)
