From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Capitol Crossing is a $1.3 billion real estate development often also referred to as a community revitalization project in downtown Washington, D.C. Construction on the project began in 2014 and is expected to continue until 2021.
The Capitol Crossing project is privately funded, and is one of the largest ongoing private developments in DC. This 2.2 million sqft project covers a 7-acre site above I-395 and consists of 5 mixed use buildings: 200 Massachusetts, 250 Massachusetts, 200 F Street, 600 Second, and 201 F Street.

The three blocks being built do not take land from Virginia or Maryland, but bring back land that was taken years ago.
The neighborhoods of Capitol Hill and the East End, which have been long divided by the highway, will be reconnected in the near future due to the construction of a platform adjacent to Massachusetts Avenue. According to city officials, this $200 million platform built over the highway will enhance the vibrancy of east downtown community of Washington, D.C.

Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.
