April 10, 2017 - The beautiful Beaux Arts building housing DC Water's Main Pumping Station, as seen from a balcony at F1rst.
  Jan. 20, 2018 - Work began in the fall of 2016 on the existing red-brick O Street Pumping Station to turn it into....
July 19, 2016 - The new DC Water Headquarters building, to be built as a wrap-around to the existing red-brick O Street Pumping Station, seen from the same view as the above angle. Construction is expected to start in 2016, with completion in summer 2018.
  Jan. 20, 2018 - The building as seen from the Douglass Bridge. Note the initial stages of facing at the left side.
Oct. 22, 2017 - Old and new.
  Feb. 5, 2018 - Looking at the new HQ construction from the rooftop of 1221 Van street a few blocks away, showing more clearly how the new steel wraps around the existing O Street pumping station. (People aren't going to be too thrilled about looking at that side of the building, but it will become obscured when later construction comes along.)
May 2004 - Looking east at what used to be an intersection of 1st and O Streets, SE.
October 22, 2017 - The same view, with the HQ construction now dominating. Click to see all available photos of this location.
March 22, 2007 - Standing on N Street SE about one block north of the DC Water footprint, a few weeks before this Southeast Federal Center building was demolished.
August 5, 2017 - The same view, where the historic pumphouse is now easily seen, as is the HQ construction. (Eventually this view will be replaced by Yards development.) Click to see all available photos of this location.
Dec. 3, 2011 - The eastern side of the Main Pumping Station, as seen from the Yards Park.
July 19, 2016 - A daytime rendering of the new building as seen from the pedestrian bridge.
July 19, 2016 - Another rendering of the new HQ, looking eastward from above along the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail toward the Yards Park. Also visible in this rendering is the new extension of Potomac Avenue at lower right to a new 1 1/2 Street SE.
The site plan, showing the undulating design of the new building that will be wrapped around the existing O Street pumping station. The three white boxes show where two residential buildings and a movie theater are under development by Forest City as part of the Yards.
