Mr. Georgetown Moves to Logan Circle: “The City’s Moved East”

Here's a sign of the times if there ever was one: Herb Miller, a 50-year Georgetown resident and the man responsible for developing much of the neighborhood, has packed up and moved to Logan Circle. His reason: "The city's moved east."

On Friday evening, in a gutted building at 1351 H St. NE, Washington witnessed the beginning of a real estate revolution.

Herb Miller, Developer of Gallery Place, on Abe Pollin

Here's Herb Miller, 66, CEO of Western Development, on Abe Pollin's passing:
