(Yes, I was lazy enough to just copy the map from the upper right of this page. Whatever works.)
See, I told you a lot is happening right now. All the stars are projects under construction, or about to be, or just finished.
If you don't feel like counting, there are 12 residential projects under construction or about to be, plus three office buildings, one hotel, and a shiny new bridge across the Anacostia.
And one of the recently completed apartment buildings, 1221 Van, is directly across N Street from the ballpark, with amazing rooftop views of the field--and from some of the upper-floor residences, too.
The Half Street stroll will be a little rife with construction activity, but it shows that, with a little more patience, the area immediately north of the Center Field Gate is on its way to looking more like a neighborhood than an urban wasteland.
