Monument reveals plans for Half Street site in Navy Yard

Quote:
Not quite six months after buying the land on the northeast corner of Half and N streets across from Nats Park currently known as Monument Valley, the MacFarlane/Jair Lynch joint venture has now submitted to the Zoning Commission its new plans for the site, a 10-story building with 461,700 square feet of residential (and possibly hotel) development, combined with at least 60,000 square feet of retail.

This area will be a sea of cranes in a year.

Grand Central Terminal architect selected for Union Station expansion


By Jonathan O'Connell
April 7, 2015
Washington Post

“The architectural firm behind the remake of New York’s Grand Central Terminal will lead the effort to plan a $10 billion proposed expansion of Union Station, a project that could triple passenger capacity at the station.

Beyer Blinder Belle, with offices in New York and Washington, oversaw design, master planning and the revitalization of Grand Central, turning the 1913 Beaux Arts-style train station into a more modern, accessible and efficient rail hub. The firm has done similar work rehabilitating historic buildings in Washington including for Smithsonian museums.

It's hard to get a good vantage point, but here's a number of high-profile cranes. From left to right:
  • 600 Massachusetts Avenue NW (2 cranes)
  • 11M
  • Elysium Fourteen (up close)
  • 900 16th Street NW

Not shown but off the top of my head:

Navy Yard and Southwest:
  • Florida Rock
  • Arris
  • 800 New Jersey Avenue SE
  • 500 D Street SW
  • The Wharf (Plot D)
  • Hyatt Place

CBD and Dupont Circle:
  • 2001 M Street NW
  • West End Library
  • GW Superdorm (2 cranes)
  • Unknown project across the street from 900 16th Street NW
  • Hilton condo building
  • Chinese Embassy expansion

H Street NE, Capitol Hill and NoMa:
  • Whole Foods/The Apollo
  • Rayburn Building renovation
  • 625 H Street NE
  • The Maryland

That's not exhaustive by any means, but the vast majority of them. This is only within the District; there's a ton of development in Tysons Corner, Arlington and Bethesda as well.
