It's a demolition two-fer today--in addition to 26 N Street being knocked down on the Monument Realty land just north of the stadium, I was a little surprised to find that the wrecking crews started work today on Square 699N, taking down the red brick building/loading dock at Half and K (exposing some of the interior of Club 55) as well as the northwesternmost portion of the Edge/Wet building. You can see also at the top of my Square 699N page a well-timed shot of the entire block before demolition started, taken yesterday morning from the top floor of 20 M Street. And we've now got Demolished Building #119. I imagine the rest of the block is going to go pretty quickly. And then perhaps Mr. Cohen will tell us a bit more about what he's got planned for the site, beyond "mixed-use/office/condos."

I wasn't expecting this one just yet, but today the red brick building at 26 N Street has been demolished (flip through the Stadium Construction Camera images from Camera #2 starting at 8:40 am to see it disappear); it was home for many years to the Patent Reproduction Company, until a deal was made by Monument Realty in August 2005 to purchase it for $3 million (see Post and WBJ articles from the time of the sale). This site is directly across from the stadium, but is not part of Monument's first phase of development in the area (which is in Square 701 on the east side of Half Street--the demolished building is on the west side, in Square 700 at Van and N streets); Square 700 redevelopment will probably not begin before 2009. But I'm guessing there might be some stadium parking made available on the north side of N between South Capitol and Half in the meantime. And 26 N has now been enshrined as #118 in my Demolished Buildings gallery; I imagine its neighbors (including the Good N Plenty carryout) are in their last days as well.

From the Spring 2007 newsletter of the Washington Humane Society (hat tip to reader Chuck): "As if being the largest Spay/Neuter Clinic in the Metropolitan area was not already enough, in June 2007, the Washington Humane Society will unveil the first ever low-cost Regional Spay/Neuter Center, created specifically to service the entire DC metropolitan area. The new facility will be named the National Capital Area Spay and Neuter Surgical Center. The current low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic is located on Georgia Avenue in Northwest and will move to Capitol Hill, 1001 L Street, SE to a facility that is nearly four times the size of the current location. [...] The new National Capital Area Spay and Neuter Surgical Center will provide an average of fifty sterilization surgeries on both dogs and cats every day, five days a week." This is the building at the corner of 10th and L that has been being rehabilitated over the past few months. No word on whether Bob Barker will be making appearances in the Hood. UPDATE: Here's the building at 1001 L Street--definitely looks like it's getting prepped for occupants.
