Choose Your Own Adventure, Shaw Edition

Shaw residents packed into the meeting room at the Watha T. Daniel library last night to get a glimpse of their neighborhood's future. Well, six different potential futures.

UHOP Looks to Consolidate Hold on 7th Street Block

Last month, the city held a pre-bid conference for people interested in Parcel 42, the key chunk of land at 7th and Rhode Island Avenue NW that's now on its second trip through the public disposition process.

Another Chunk of City Land Back Up For Grabs: 7th and Rhode Island

Gradually, gradually, the city is scrapping Adrian Fenty-era-and-earlier plans for redevelopment projects on government land—either killed by the economy or fumbled by the last administration—and throwing them back out for bid.

Building Around a Relic: The Shaw Urban Renewal Plan

Building most anything in the District requires many levels of review by commissions, councils, and boards, to comply with regulations imposed by overlays, Acts, and districts.

City Clearing Out Parcel 42

As Sommer Mathis reported yesterday, the city gave the few people still living on the contested space at 7th and R Streets NW a 15-day warning period to pack up and go elsewhere. This morning is the 16th day, and a reader sends in pictoral proof that the Man has made good on his word.

Fenty and Gray Carve Up the Real Estate World

On Monday, Jonathan O'Connell drilled down into the economic development platforms of Mayor Adrian Fenty and would-be mayor Vince Gray. In a nutshell, he concludes that while Fenty has gone for big developments–many of which haven't yet been built–Gray would focus on fewer projects, and emphasize the steady-job-generating tourism industry. We also get a bit [...]
