Looking at the BEQ's southern facade, along L Street, from the roof of the old Capper Seniors building. The dome of the Library of Congress is at upper left; the US Capitol dome is just out of frame. (11/1/07)
The new barracks under construction, looking at the same angle (the northwest corner of 7th and L streets, SE) as in the rendering at the top of the page. (05/03)
Finished. (11/05)
Looking southeast from Virginia Avenue at the barracks construction, with the Capper Senior apartment building in the background. (06/03)
Fourteen months later, both the BEQ and the parking garage are completed, seen here from 5th and Virginia in November 2004, during the brief time between the demolition of the Capper Apartment building and the start of construction on Capper Seniors #1. (11/04)
Another view of the barracks construction along the north side of L Street, this time looking from 5th Street. (05/03)
Almost there.... (07/04)
Looking west into the barracks construction area from 7th Street, just south of its intersection with Virginia Avenue. The driveway is actually K Street (which will not be reopened), and the now-demolished Capper Apartment buildings at the far right. (05/03)
The same location, more than two years later. If you have very sharp eyes, you can see the construction of the new Capper Seniors #1, and even Capitol Hill Tower in the distance. (10/05)
Looking south on 7th Street from Virginia Avenue, through the intersection with K Street, early on in construction, in January 2003. The Arthur Capper Seniors building at 7th and M is at rear. (01/03)
The eastern edge of the BEQ, on 7th Street, at the completion of construction in August 2004. (08/04)
