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.

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
