The Fourth Real Estate

Earlier this summer, before Jeff Bezos was trending in every echo chamber of the District, developers presented the Washington Post with about two dozen options for a new home. The paper had outgrown its 15th Street NW headquarters—or rather, outshrunk it, with the former newsroom staff of more than 1,000 now down to about 640—and needed [...]
