Big Developments Are Coming to D.C. in 2014. But Who Will Benefit?

Nothing brings a grin to a mayor’s face quite like raising an oversize pair of scissors and cutting a ribbon. All the more so in an election year. While 2014 does portend some potential pitfalls for Vince Gray—look no further than the process to redraw school boundaries for the first time in more than 30 [...]

At long last, Shaw has a supermarket again. Today at noon, the Giant at the CityMarket at O development opens to the public.

When a “Groundbreaking” Isn’t

Exactly three months ago today, the CityMarket at O mixed-use project kicked off with a big groundbreaking ceremony–long speeches, lots of shovels, big tent, the whole bit. Finally, the long-dormant corner would get new life.
