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. The building apparently will be called The Estate.
July 8, 2018 - Looking north on 3rd Street from Water Street, with the Parcel L construction now above fence level.
Aug. 6, 2005 - A ground-level view similar to the above rendering in 2005.
June 16, 2018 -
The current view of the same location, much more easily matched to the rendering.
June 1, 2017 - A view from the northwest of both the Thompson Hotel (left) and the northern portion of the residential building.
Dec. 15, 2007 - Looking southeastward from Tingey at a location that would be consistent with being called 2nd Street.
June 16, 2018 -
The same location, with the hotel's frontage now visible.
March 2, 2018 -
Updated rendering highlighting 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.
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.

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.
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.
