August 21, 2014 - A spiffy new rendering of what the new community center should look like as seen from 5th Street (albeit without the Marines' parking garage in the background).
  March 26, 2015 - An angle matching the rendering showing the site with construction underway.
Oct. 29, 2005 - The same angle from back when the old Capper Community Center was still standing. It was demolished in March 2007.
  March 12, 2015 - Construction began in the fall of 2014, but it was in March with the framing of the gymnasium on the building's south end when it really became noticeable.
May 2003 - The east side of 5th Street, from L Street, in May 2003.
  3/26/15 - The same spot. Note also Capper Seniors #1 in the background and the Marine Bachelor Enlisted Quarters parking garage at right.  Click to see all available photos of this location.
