A 2018 updated rencering of 250 M Street, as seen from 2nd and M, with the completed Harlow residential building at left rear, and 300 M to the right.
The left/west side of the building faces Canal Park.
  March 17, 2019 - Photographic evidence that excavation is indeed underway.
The northeast corner of 2nd and M in August 2003, the same angle as seen in the rendering above. The boarded-up gas station was torn down one month later. The red brick building at left is an Arthur Capper apartment block, which was demolished in early 2005. (08/03)
The same location, with the billboard announcing the project, in May 2007. 300 M Street is at rear right. And that's pretty much how the southern part of Square 769 still looks, eleven-plus years later. Click to see all available photos of this location.
The northwest corner of 3rd and M, in September 2000. The building under construction is 80 M Street.
March 17, 2019 - The same location, a mite different. Click to see all available photos of this location.
A view toward the rear of the 250 M lot, looking south-southeast on 2nd street, at its intersection with L Street, in January 2003. (01/03)
March 17, 2019 - The same location, with the Harlow mixed-income apartment building now occupying the north half of the block . The Capper buildings on this block were demolished in January, 2005, and the USDOT HQ has risen at the end of 2nd Street, across M Street. Click to see all available photos of this location.
