    The northwest/New Jersey and K entrance, which is the main entrance to the residential portion of the project; it was completed in July 2006, 2 1/2 years after construction began. (09/06)

    Three views of the northwest corner of the Tower's lot, the southeast corner of New Jersey Avenue and K Street; first, in September 2000 (top left); three years later, in September 2003 (the buildings were demolished sometime around 2001) (top right); and in May 2007, one year after opening (bottom right). The residential tower fronts New Jersey. Click to see all available photos of this location.
