The Half Street Hole

One nice thing about going to Artomatic was that I got a really good view of the now well known “Half Street Hole.”

According to DCMUD, Monument Realty began digging the nearly 2-acre hole across from the ballpark entrance, at the corner of N and Half Street, SE, back in January of 2007. The cavity is the future home to the residential portion of Monument’s Half Street project – a 340-unit residential development. According to the developer, financing for the project is still, well, in a hole, but will soon get built.

While it was reported as recently as last November that the hole was more or less beginning to be filled in, it certainly looks far from filled in to me. It looks like they just put in enough dirt to support create a gentle slop to the bottom.
