  Nov. 4, 2019 - A current view of the concurrent construction of both buildings, as seen from Tingey Street, showing the western side of both the 227-room Thompson Hotel (left) and the 270ish-unit apartment building to be called The Estate (right). It will have about 17,000 square feet of retail on the building's eastern and southern faces, and two levels of underground parking.
Aug. 6, 2005 - A ground-level view from what was not yet the Yards Park in 2005. (No, really.)
  Nov. 3, 2019 - The current view, with the Estate apartment building looking pretty finished on the outside.
Yards Parcel L, Sliding from to February 2012 to November 2019

Looking more directly down the eventual path of the mews that will run along the west side of the Thompson Hotel and Estate apartments, with the historic Main Pumping Station at right.

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.
