Then & Now
— Capitol Riverfront —Once a quiet block that served as an entrance to the Navy Yard-Ballpark Metro station, mixed-use residential building Insignia on M now sits on a bustling corner of the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood. St. Matthews Baptist Church, built in 1972, existed on the land that was bought by developer Donohoe in 2005. A sign was installed on the parcel of land in 2006 announcing that an office building was in the works, but plans would change as the residential market became dominant in this riverfront neighborhood. St. Matthews held its last service in 2014 before its move to a new location in Maryland, and the 13-story apartment building delivered in spring 2017, Insignia on M features ground floor retail space for a variety of shops and restaurants.
