Old Convention Center

For quite some time now a very large parcel of land between 9th street, 11th street, New York Avenue, and H Street where the city's former convention center used to stand has stood essentially vacant as an open-air parking lot in the middle of the city. Naturally, I've more than once wondered what, if anything, is supposed to go there. And now we know. The project looks pretty cool, though it does seem that skybridges are a bad ideas.
