March 17, 2019 - JBGSmith's "West Half" 420ish-unit residential building, designed by ODA Architecture, on Half Street immediately north of Nationals Park. The project will have 65,000 square feet of retail on two floors, and will likely deliver in 2019. This is the current state of construction as seen from N Street, basically from the Center Field Gate.
May 4, 2003 - What the northwest corner of Half and N looked like in May 2003.
May 19, 2019 - Intentions declared.
March 17, 2019 - Looking southward along Half toward the ballpark shows the building's very unique "funnel" design, and also the proximity to Nats Park.
Aug. 12, 2006 - Looking north on Van Street from Half Street, back in 2006. This land was originally purchsed by Monument Realty in 2005, and then bought by Akridge in 2008.
June 3, 2019 - The same location, in its current state. This also gives a good indication of how far north the building stretches. Click to see all available photos of this location.
June 3, 2019 - A closeup of the ground-level portion of the building, where garage door-type openings have been installed for an indoor-outdoor experience at the retail offerings that will sprout here.
June 3, 2019 - The building's north end, where there will be a pedestrian passageway through to Van Street. Even when West Half's neighbor to the north is eventually built, this will remain.
July 8, 2018 - The West Half project as seen from Nationals Park's Red Loft. It's kind of close.
West Half, Sliding from to October 2005 to March 2019

January 2006 - The northwest corner of Half and N, the same as the above rendering, but back when it was home to the Good and Plenty Carry Out. And the empty lot seen between the two rowhouses has a bit of history.
May 19, 2019 - The same location, now well underway, where outdoor bar The Bullpen opened in 2009 and ran for three seasons before being folded into the Fairgrounds in 2012. Click to see all available photos of this location.
The rendering released in 2015.

A look at the residential building Akridge had planned for this southern end of the block, before it sold the property to JBG in 2015.
Another rendering from the Akridge era, showing at left the office building it had planned where the northern end of JBG's residential building will now be. At right is an earlier version of the still-planned office building at 25 M Street, now being developed by Brandywine REIT with Akridge.
