After months of largely interior work, external demolition has begun in earnest at the old Kalorama Chinese Embassy on Connecticut Avenue. The northernmost structure, just before the bridge over Rock Creek Park, dates to the 1920s and is being preserved to be incorporated into the new diplomatic apartment building that will arise on the spot next year. The southern building is being razed this week, as part of the project led by architects Esocoff & Associates and Clark Construction.
