Washington D.C. construction

When: current day (actually, any time in the last ten years)

Where: real life Washington D.C.

Terms searched: none. The authoritative way would be to check the planning office for building permits, but I don't even know if that information is on-line.

Question:
I need a location in the district that a) has a park/square with a fountain with a wide enough rim you could comfortably sit on it to eat lunch and b) has a good amount of new construction going on.

Any residents (current or former) have suggestions?
