I get distracted with other things for, like, a minute, and all of a sudden the Capper Community Center on 5th Street SE between K and L starts looking like a real building!
The masonry work appears all but completed on the south end, where the gymnasium will be. If you compare these photos to the rendering, you'll see that most of the "holes" left in the construction are where glass or exterior flourishes are planned.
As for the picture at bottom right, it was my not-particularly successful attempt to show in a single shot the progress at the Community Center, the current state of the Lofts at Capitol Quarter a block away, and the boarded up windows signaling renovations at Van Ness Elementary.
(These blah pictures also show why I generally avoid taking photos when it's overcast or hazy or humid or, heaven forbid, all three. I also pretty much turned into Frosty the Snowman in the greenhouse in the brief time it took to take them.)
