The 324-unit 1111 New Jersey Avenue residential building.
1111 New Jersey Avenue Residential Development

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.

Rendering of the 324-unit residential building that Donohoe now plans to build on New Jersey Avenue between M and N,
to be called "Gallery at Capitol Riverfront." Construction could begin in 2014.

A view of the New Jersey and M intersection similar to the rendering above, in August 2005. (08/05)

A slightly expanded view of same location, in February 2014, with the 1111 site unchanged but 100 M and Onyx on First now looming behind. The glass canopy of the Navy Yard Metro exit was installed in April 2006. (2/27/14) Click to see all available photos of this location.

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. St. Matthew's is slated for demolition. (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.

Looking south on New Jersey Avenue at L Street; 1111 New Jersey Avenue will fill in the grassy area on the right side with its own tower to match 1100 New Jersey across the street and the DOT HQ across M. (02/06)

While the 1111 New Jersey property now includes the land around the Metro entrance, the building will not be brought right to the M Street line. There will be a wide plaza surrounding the Metro entrance, and the existing entrance canopy will remain. The entrance will be protected and is expected to remain open during construction. (08/06)

In May 2006 a sign went up announcing what was then an office project. (05/06)
