March 2007 - Built in 1919 on the northeast corner of 3rd and Tingey Street, the old Building 167 has been renovated and now offers more than 46,000 square feet of retail space. Retailers already open are Bluejacket Brewery and its restaurant, The Arsenal, Buzz Bakery, Nando's Peri-Peri, Wells Cleaners, and GNC. Willie's Brew and 'Que sportsbar and 100 Montaditos opened in late 2014. DOT HQ is at left and Building 202 is peeking out at far right.
Oct. 10, 2014 - The same view, with the rehabilitation completed and with many of the tenants now open, and with Twelve12 now risen to the east.
July 17, 2008 - The southern exterior of Building 167, awaiting rehabilitation.
September 29, 2013 - And the same facade seen above, looking a bit different.
Nov. 3, 2014 - The western end of the building, not long after Willie's Brew and Que (far left) Unleashed by Petco (far right) opened; GNC opened in August 2013 and Wells Dry Cleaners opened in January, 2013.
September 29, 2013 - The east end of the building, facing Tingey near 4th Street, where restaurant Nando's Peri-Peri opened in August, 2013.
April 5, 2014 - Bluejacket's signage and its new summer patio, in spring 2014. (Their sign unfortunately is nearly impossible to see, even in person.)
November 10, 2013 - Bluejacket's interior, a few weeks after its opening, with Twelve12's construction looming across the street. (See more Bluejacket interior photos.)
Jan. 1, 2015 - The packed bar at Willie's on the day of the NHL Winter Classic. (In the summer this will no doubt be Nats jerseys.)
Nov. 3, 2014 - Unleashed by Petco, right after it opened.
Dec. 13, 2014 - Spanish sandwich restaurant 100 Montaditos soon after its opening.
January 25, 2012 - A view of the work on the Boilermaker Shops from on high (from one of the Foundry Lofts penthouses, during a January 2012 tour).
June 2007 - The east side of the Boilermaker Shop, facing Fourth Street, in June 2007.
November 15, 2014 - A non-wide-angle view of the same part of the building, now home to the Bluejacket Brewery.
May 2004 - An old, bad, through-the-windshield view of the east end of the Boilermaker Shops, in May 2004, before the construction of the US Department of Transportation.
November 15, 2014 - A similar angle after the building's completion. Click to see all available photos of this location.
July 17, 2008 - The interior of Building 167, looking toward its Fourth Street door, with its multitudes of windows along the sides and in its roof letting in much light, even on a cloudy day.
July 17, 2008 - The huge 15-ton crane in the building's rafters that used to help move objects along the floor.
September 9, 2012 - The same crane, now contained within a new mezzanine office space.
The old office at the southeast corner. (7/17/08)
The window structure will be retained (though of course new glass will be installed). The exposed brick beneath the windows will also be cleaned up and retained. (7/17/08)
A closer view of the ceiling. (7/17/08)
One more view of the interior, this time looking toward the northern side of the building at the Third Street entrance. (7/17/08)
While waiting for construction to get underway, the Boilermaker Shop has been used for some events, such as the October 2008 announcement of the $42 million public-private partnership to build and maintain the Waterfront Park at the Yards. (10/29/08
A very wide-angle lens view back in 2008 showing the Boilermaker Shop's location relative to the Foundry Lofts and the Yards Park, down what will be a new section of Third Street. (4/5/08
Lastly, a view of the Boilermaker Shops, the Foundry Lofts, and the Lumber Shed at the Yards Park (along with the red brick Building 170 that's JBG's purview and not part of the Yards) as seen from the northwest, as the foundation was being dug for the US Department of Transportation headquarters. (Guess I won't be getting an "after" of this angle.) (9/2/04)
