July 14, 2018 - Standing on top of the Hampton Inn at 1st and N Streets, SE, looking eastward along N Street (and then Tingey Street) into the Yards, with a view of the footprint at Yards Parcel G at left. It is the grassy area which currently houses Trapeze School New York.
  Jan. 2, 2019 - A late 2018 rendering of Parcel G's planned development, which would be Forest City's first planned Class A office building at the Yards, as it is expected to be the new headquarters for Chemonics, International. It would be situated at the corner of New Jersey and N (current site of the Trapeze School), south of a newly reconstituted Quander Street. This rendering is a street-level view of the project, looking westward along N Street and with New Jersey Avenue at right, a reverse view from my overhead shot. Rendering from a December 2018 filing with the Zoning Commission.
Dec. 3, 2011 - For about 50 years, this site, similar to the above rendering was home to the southeast corner of the old "spooky" Building 213, demolished in 2014.
March 17, 2019 - The same location, de-spookified and with the Trapeze School New York in residence.  Click to see all available photos of this location.
  Jan. 2, 2019 - An overhead view of the proposed building, with recognizable landmarks depicted such as Nats Park and the DC Water headquarters, and directly across from a planned residential project on Parcel I. Rendering from a December 2018 filing with the Zoning Commission.
  Jan. 2, 2019 - Looking toward the south-southeast from what will be the new intersection of New Jersey and Quander, depicting a planned Canal Street-that-isn't-really-a-street south of N toward the river.
  Jan. 2, 2019 - A site plan of "Yards West," as well as a close-up of Parcel G. This shows the plan for the new 1 1/2 Street, a curbless shared street that will function as a "spine" running from M Street all the way down to Diamond Teague Park, as seen on the left side of the drawing. Also depicted is the new Quander Street, as well as the proposed Canal Street that would continue south from New Jersey's terminus at the planned Tingey Square. From a December 2018 filing with the Zoning Commission.
Dec. 3, 2011 - Standing at what will eventually be the intersection of 1 1/2 and N Streets, looking north-northeast at what was then the gloriously blank facade of Building 213.
October 16, 2016 - The same location, de-spookified and a mite different.  Click to see all available photos of this location.
June 28, 2014 - Midway down the block of New Jersey between M and N Streets, during the demolition of Building 213 in 2014.
Dec. 10, 2016 - .... And a more recent view. I cannot state with 1000% accuracy that this is the location where Quander Street will start at New Jersey Avenue, but it's pretty close.
  Jan. 2, 2019 - One more rendering, showing how the building will look from the northwest, from the eventual intersection of 1 1/2 and Quander Streets.
