  5. From the pictures I've seen, it looks like Broad St. will have 2 additional floors (the two that are already framed up) and the Marshall St. side will have 6 plus the mechanical penthouse. https://news.vcu.edu/article/Childrens_Hospital_of_Richmond_at_VCU_breaks_ground_on_inpatient

  7. Great find! Here's the fullscreen link to the camera: https://public.earthcam.net/ScottsCollectionIEarthCam/scotts_collection_i_project/camera/view_1
  8. Keep in mind that DC has a building height limit of 130 feet in commercial areas, so that caps the height around 10-11 floors. I agree that the building at 1331 L St. NW is nothing special in terms of looks, but it's built about as tall as it legally can be. I also did some digging and it's not clear to me who actually owns their DC HQ building. There are a bunch of LLCs involved so it may ultimately be CoStar as the owners, but it could be that their leasing it from a completely separate entity. The land they just bought is registered under Costar Realty Information Inc, so I'm guessing that they are just leasing the building in DC.

I finally found a rendering of the canal side: https://www.thelockstower.com/brochure.aspx?_yTrackUser=NjM1ODE4OTQyIzIxNDExMjEwMTU%3d-DWUS%2b8rsJMc%3d&_yTrackVisit=MTE2MzI3NjQ4MSM0MzYwNTEzMTM%3d-j66xzHXzWc0%3d&_yTrackReqDT=16302220191210# I can't quite tell what's on the lower level - a bar perhaps(?) - but it's 8 2-bedroom apartments on the canal side of the parking garage.
