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.
  April 14, 2018 - The parking lot on Parcel L was closed and fenced off in July of 2017, and by spring 2018 vertical construction was underway.
Aug. 6, 2005 - A ground-level view similar to the above rendering in 2005.
April 14, 2018 - The current view of the same location, much more easily matched to the rendering. Click to see all available photos of this location.
March 2, 2018 - Updated rendering showing the building that will be a Thompson boutique hotel, with approximately 227 rooms and 7,500 square feet of ground-floor retail, along with a rooftop bar/restaurant. This is the view down 3rd Street from Tingey, across from the Foundry Lofts.
May 21, 2004 - Looking southwest from the corner of 3rd and Tingey in May, 2004, before 3rd Street really existed to the south.
April 14, 2018 - The current view of the same location. Click to see all available photos of this location.
  June 1, 2017 - A view from the northwest of both the hotel (left) and the northern portion of the residential building.
July 16, 2016 - A view slightly shifted (and fish-eyed) from the previous drawing to show the residential building's northwestern corner, with the 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. (This was filed before the design for the hotel was finalized.) 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.
