Gearing Up @ 12th & Florida
If you've recently seen police escorts speeding down Florida Ave with semi trucks hauling huge black wrapped boxes you may have watched parts of these massive pre-fab homes on their way into town. Currently there are a couple of stacks over at the 12th & Florida site & more sitting in the big parking lot (the one belonging to Gallaudet that hosts a weekend flea market) at the Florida Market. Both sites are reportedly under 24 hour guard (we did see patrols). Tonight a massive crane arrived at the construction site. Apparently we should see at least some fully assembled buildings by Friday.
A truck parked across from the site (it was dark, so I messed with the exposure so you could see it better).
House parts await pick-up at the Florida Market.
These pieces are the tops of the buildings and look like they are part of a walkout roof-top deck.
