Interesting. Do you have a link to the press release? Phase I was going to be the East or West Office Building?
says: (7/16/11 11:27 AM)
As my post says, it's the eastern office building that was planned to be the first phase, next to Diamond Teague.
And, do you really want me to give you a Let Me Google That For You link? ;-) (I'm letting the rest of the media do their own research for a change.)

Hah. Fine fine - I just clicked on a couple links in your story thinking I was getting the PR, but no ... no I did not.

Not a bad idea considering 1015 Half St and other office buildings are awaiting occupants.
JD - This seems like a good time to ask about the status of the new South Capitol St bridge. Understand the new bridge will be needed to support later phases of development at FL Rock. The first phase should remain unaffected.
says: (7/18/11 2:16 PM)
F: The status is that DC will need a pile of money from the Feds to build the new bridge. Whether that's something that is likely to happen in the current environment is an open question.
The current bridge runs on the far western portion (late phases) of the RiverFront acreage (and would have one of the buildings on the new circle at South Capitol and Potomac), though apparently the design is such that the four phases can be finished without the new bridge being built. The first phase, though, is nowhere near the bridge site and so isn't impacted, as you said.

Actually, DC will need a pile of money from the taxpayers. Turns out, thats where the Feds get it from.

JD whatever happened with the story that the CHT retail had a tenant? Thanks
says: (7/21/11 10:32 AM)
Waiting for someone to confirm the rumor of who the tenant is, beyond just residents telling me they heard something like such-and-such. :-) There's a CHT residents meeting soon, I'm sure the details will come out then.
But, if the rumor of the tenant turns out to be true, everyone should be prepared to be not terribly excited.
(And, by the way, I don't like being cagey any more than you like reading me being cagey. But my prohibition against reporting stuff I can't confirm is pretty strong. Hopefully the news will come out soon.)
says: (7/21/11 12:01 PM)
My only real vote for the space in CHT is for a place that will attract more retail and restaurants to the area. Well, that and a frozen yogurt place :)
(Probably wishful thinking, I know, but... a girl can dream, right?)
says: (7/21/11 12:16 PM)
Okay, just heard the rumor myself. At least I'm telling myself it's only a rumor. If this is true, I don't think it's going to be so attractive to retail/restaurants that would consider coming here.
says: (7/21/11 12:26 PM)
Well why don't you pass along the rumor, to those of us wondering what it is? You're certainly not bound to any ethical standards JD holds herself to viz. confirmation...
says: (7/21/11 2:17 PM)
Ann's B/S and Wigs is expanding?! That's great news!
says: (7/22/11 10:26 AM)
"I don't think it's going to be so attractive to retail/restaurants that would consider coming here."
You can't say that then not tell us. You're not JD, just tell us the rumor!
says: (7/22/11 10:32 AM)
Now I'm terrified: Checks cashed place? A nightclub with no dress code? Ann's part deux? A free STD testing clinic? CASH4GOLD?
Tell me the rumor.
says: (7/22/11 10:47 AM)
Me too, Eric. I'm picturing an OTB. Or another liquor store. Or a combination OTB/liquor store.
says: (7/22/11 10:50 AM)
Don't let your minds go too far afield. It's not *bad* if true, just not anything like what people have been hoping for.
I can't believe no one's posted it.
says: (7/22/11 1:44 PM)
Why don't the CHT peeps post it - there is more than the informer who knows. And it isn't that bad, probably a place most people won't go but at least it will bring jobs/people to the area which helps the area overall.
says: (7/22/11 3:22 PM)
Would someone - anyone - post it with the caveat that it's just a rumor?
says: (7/24/11 2:11 AM)
And the second part is a bit more disappointing...
So instead, I'd like to buy "co-eds" for $40,000 please, Alex.
says: (7/24/11 10:12 AM)
Ok, this dancing around is pretty ridiculous. From where I sit, people on jdland are all too eager to share a rumor when there isn't any substantiation, so why not share this when there is some truth to it?
The not-so-secret secret is that, in vague terms, this space will house a Georgetown University program that will help the underserved community in some fashion.
I could have some of the details wrong, but these are the broad brushstrokes.
says: (7/24/11 11:26 AM)
Because we were hoping it wouldn't be true maybe? ... Was described as an "outreach center," so if it's intended for the underserved (which I fully advocate... GU probably can't do enough of that), I'm not sure exactly what it's doing in this well-off neighborhood with few children and no (currently?) local elementary school
says: (7/25/11 1:32 AM)
I, for one, look forward to dozens of homeless folk strewn about the area. (perhaps a bit hyperbolic)
They really couldn't find better tenants like some much needed non-restaurant retail? FFS.
says: (7/25/11 12:17 PM)
Pretty sure its not a soup kitchen, probably a non-profit office.
