Monument’s Half Street Project Near Ballpark Heats Up


After buying up the last dilapidated parcel of land it needed this past Summer at the corner of N and Half Streets SE, it looks like Monument Realty is ready to move forward with its planned mixed-use project in the new Southeast DC Ballpark District. Monument’s Half Street project, to be located on the eastern section of Half Street between M and N Streets SE, at the north entrance of the new ballpark location, will contain a total of 775,000 sf of mixed-use space, with 320 residential units, a 200-room hotel, 275,000 sf of office space, and 50,000 sf of retail. Monument is now accepting registrations from those interested in this project on its Web site, and has released a rendering of the final complex (pictured). Monument plans to start building the project this Spring, and have it completed in April 2009 (one year after the ballpark is scheduled to open).

I didn't think it looked so bad, but there's very little to go on at this point. We should be able to get some more images soon. If we can have the main entryway to the stadium look not too much like Disney I'll be shocked.

No way they'll deliver this thing by April 2009. They will need to get pre-sales of the residential if they go condo before construction starts, construction takes 2 years at least, that means they would need to be selling today to break ground by April.
