  July 16, 2016 - Rendering submitted to the Zoning Commission in July 2016 for the "Parcel L2" project at the Yards, a 270-unit residential building south of Tingey Street and west of 3rd Street SE. It would have about 17,000 square feet of retail on the building's eastern and southern faces and two levels of underground parking. This is the view looking north out of the Yards Park from the pedestrian bridge.
Aug. 6, 2005 - A ground-level view similar to the above rendering in 2005.
October 16, 2016 - The current view of the same location, much more easily matched to the rendering. Click to see all available photos of this location.
  July 16, 2016 - The building's northwestern corner, with the residential entry "pavilion" at left and with a hint of pedestrian "mews" that will allow a direct connection from Tingey Street to the Yards Park.
April 16, 2016 - Looking west on Water Street across 3rd Street, from a position between the Lumber Shed (left) and Foundry Lofts (right). The DC Water historic Main Pumping Station is ahead.
A rendering from the July 2016 zoning submission showing a less faraway version of the same location, with the proposed Parcel L building ahead.
  July 16, 2016 - Looking east toward Parcel L from Tingey Street, showing more clearly how the "L2" residential building would not front Tingey. The current plan is that a hotel will eventually be built at the north end of the block. The park area in the foreground is the proposed Tingey Square.
An overhead view of what was then known as the Southeast Federal Center, in about 1992. The very large white building at center rear is Building 159, which stood on this site until about 2000 but which I never got my own photos of. (Waaaah!) From the Carol M. Highsmith archive at the Library of Congress.
May 21, 2004 - What the Parcel L site looked like when the Yards was still the Southeast Federal Center, a few years after Building 159 was demolished.
A rendering from the July 2016 zoning submission of the same spot from a slightly different angle, with the proposed Parcel L building ahead.
