Thanks to TommyZ for sending the photo above. He writes:

“For the last few months I have noticed construction crews gutting the old NPR building on 635 Massachusetts Ave. NW, but today I noticed they started knocking the building down with a wrecking ball. Any ideas what is going to replace it? Also, curious if its cheaper to demolish and start from scratch vs. renovating it?”

It’s going to become a brand new building that has been leased to the Arnold & Porter law firm. NPR’s new home is at 1111 North Capitol Street, NE in NoMa.
