Touring the 1221 Van Apartment Building / Photo Gallery
February 5, 2018
A visit on a lovely winter late-afternoon at 1221 Van, a 290-unit apartment building immediately north of Nationals Park, at the corner of South Capitol and N Streets. For more information, check out the official web site, or my project page.
The roof deck. (The dome is bigger in person--I didn't zoom my lens enough.) (link)
The infinity pool is winterized, but you still get a sense of how residents will be able to watch the ballgame while being in the water. (The ballpark is definitely closer than it appears in these photos. Wide-angle shots wreck havoc with distances.) (link)
A shot taken from the roof back in April 2017 that shows the actual size of the ballpark. (link)
Another wide-angle view of the pool and its view to the southeast. (link)
The view to the south-southwest. Watching the traffic on South Capitol while being partially submerged might be oddly relaxing. (link)
