The Post is reporting
that Monument Realty filed a lawsuit today against WMATA, asking that the planned sale
of the Southeastern Bus Garage
at Half and M to Akridge be invalidated, arguing that "it deserves the property because it has been working with Metro and the District government for three years as 'master developer' of the area, with the implicit understanding that Metro would sell Monument the land." If the court were to not invalidate the sale, Monument wants $100 million in damages. I haven't seen the documents myself (though I hear one of my JDLand maps is used as an illustration), so I don't know whether the previously implied threats
to slow down the Navy Yard station renovation are addressed anywhere.
