Looks like the Washington Business Journal caught the first glimpse in the wild of the 383-unit residential project at 909 Half Street, now that the permit for building above ground level has been approved.
(And is it really all that different from my rendering?)
No official comment or additional info to be had at this point; however, maybe now that it's out there the development team of Ruben and Related will catch up with the party and pass along some tidbits.
 

Credit for the season-appropriate image goes to the unknown resident at Onyx along L Street, who graciously put out mums and Halloween decorations in a location where the JDLand camera could see them. If you're a reader, thanks!
It's beginning to feel a lot like autumn, and so it's a good time to look at the lineup of the neighborhood's Halloween-themed events, which are conveniently scheduled the weekend before Halloween, since the big day itself is on a Saturday this year.
* PUMPKINS IN THE PARK: On Oct. 24 from 11 am to 1 pm, the free Pumpkins in the Park event returns to Canal Park for its second year, with pumpkin painting, face painting, a moonbounce, and music from Rainbow Rock.
* WHARF PUMPKIN PALOOZA: If you feel like stretching your legs a bit, you can wander over to the Gangplank Marina Park at 6th & Water Streets SW for Pumpkin Palooza, on Oct. 24 from noon to 4 pm. "Create your own 'pumpkin' at the Wharf's waterfront art studio while listening to the Wil Gravatt Band." Plus, Grillmaster Bufus will be manning the King Ribs shack.
* BARKTOBERFEST: Halloween goes to the dogs with the Washington Animal Rescue League's Barktoberfest, on Oct. 24 from 1 to 5 pm at the corner of 1st and N Streets, SE. There's dogs, there's dog costumes, there's bocce, there's shopping, there's food trucks, there's beer. Tickets start at $10 for non-drinking guests, then go up to $35 in advance ($40 at the door) for general admission, or the $50 VIP unlimited-tastings ticket.
* GREAT PUMPKIN PARTY: The Waterfront Church is hosting a free Great Pumpkin Party on Sunday, Oct. 25 from 4 to 6 pm at the Courtyard by Marriott at 140 L St. SE (2nd floor). Candy, face painting, cookie decorating, "jumpers" (?), games, and more.
Also, if you're already looking past fall and toward winter, the word is out that the Canal Park Ice Rink will have its grand opening for the season on Saturday, Nov. 14. And, on Dec. 5 and 6, the holiday-themed Parcel Market will return to Canal Park.
