I love the curved glass panels which will create a kaleidoscopic effect and could you imagine it will not need intermediary mullions for support, I've never seen something like that before. Someone should share the renders and glass mockups they look crystal transparent.

Does anyone have any news about this project? I'm just so grateful that some people perceive modern architecture in this way.

That is some incredibly beautiful glass and this will be the example of good materials can make an otherwise bland design look like a masterpiece.

This project is a masterpiece. My friend works a few blocks here. He had recorded a video of this project to me.

I've been waiting for this update for so long now, I didn't have a clue that the project has progressed so nicely. When I see the reflection of the three curved glass on the left side of the building I can already get an impression of the finished product.
Overall, an innovation suitable for a 21st century building. Cheers and thank you for the update!

For any Washingtonian passing around this area - I'd gladly appreciate a photo, it doesn't have to take your time with a lot of photos, just one would be enough so that we can see how's the progress.
Thanks in advance.

Washingtonians show some mercy for my MStreet thirst. I know you're usually busy dealing with Lil Spanky in the Office, but still we haven't had an update in six months.

On my way to the Doctor's office, looks like CBS News has already moved in here. There's a gigantic pic with a crane next door to this building, but I don't know if that's related to this project.







Edit: This building that I took a photo of last year is gone:

The building will stretch all the way on the parcel, like shown in this street view,
https://www.google.com/maps/place/20...!4d-77.0462473


that's the way it was initially planed as we can see on the render in the first post.
That's why they razed the old buildings.

Got it. Thanks! I thought that was a different project so didn't photograph it.

But yes, the brown building and the adjacent taller beige building are completely gone and there's a 3-ish story pit in their place with tons of activity - the crane even moved over me as I was taking a pic.
