No, those are not visible from the street, thanks to a curtain of grass and small to now medium-sized trees that surrounds so much of the site.

That much is correct. But the highway lies at the far southern end of the memorial grounds and the trees extend all the way there from the far northern end. You might have known that had you ever been there.

None of those is visible while driving along Washington Avenue, becasue...
"A memorial grove of 69 ginkgo and 23 cypress trees form the backdrop to the memorial and signify hope and growth. The ginkgo trees will turn a beautiful shade of gold around Veteran's Day each year and will eventually grow to form an enveloping canopy around the Memorial and its visitors. The urban grove makes up over two-thirds of the 2.4-acre triangular site. Other landscaping features include clipped evergreen hedges that parallel the laminated glass panels, and fragrant shrubs."
An enveloping canopy, they say. And 'they' in this case was the National Park Service writing at about the time the memorial was dedicated (October 2014).

Wwll, here's a photo (artist's renderings, I believe you call them) from NPS taken at the interior of the memorial. It at least suggests the extent to which the 'enveloping canopy' had grown up at the time. More growth had of course occurred by the time I was there last Saturday.
