Today's Washington Business Journal
print edition (available online to subscribers only) addresses Monday's Zoning Commission decision
to request large-scale changes to the Florida Rock
development plan (which the WBJ had trumpeted
merely a week ago as being on the cusp of approval), saying that the recommendations for a redesign
"were news to the developer and the Anacostia Waterfront Corp., which has been involved in the project-planning process. 'We were astounded,' says David Briggs, FRP's representative and land-use attorney at Holland + Knight. FRP plans to meet with the District's Office of Planning to determine its next course of action. The Office of Planning is expected to reconnect [JD: recommend?] incorporating the commission's suggestions unless the developer wants to leave the site as is -- a concrete mixing and gravel storage area."
