UPDATE: I tried to hint with my wording down below, but the cat is now out of the bag, as it has been announced that the National Labor Relations Board will be taking 143,000 square feet of space at 1015 Half Street.
Original post: I don't have official confirmation, so the best I can do is be all cagey and say that word is filtering out that 1015 Half Street may finally be about to get a tenant for some of its 410,000 square feet, six years after construction started and nearly three years after it was finished. If this pans out, the newcomers wouldn't arrive before next year, since of course there will first be the inevitable labor to build out the tenant space.
I've also got a bit of non-Near Southeast content to pass along, as the Post's Capital Business section is featuring "A Walking Tour in Pictures: The Final Days of White Flint Mall," a gallery of photos I took as the go-to shopping destination of my Montgomery County teenage years prepares to close to make way for a 5 million-square-foot mixed-use development. (And because we all know I can't bear to be shackled by space constraints, here's some additional shots that didn't make the initial cut.)
This is the second one of these features I've done with Jonathan O'Connell and CapBiz, after my Buzzard Point photo tour last fall, and there will probably be more to come from other soon-to-change areas around the Metro area.

RIP Dave & Busters.

On a more local note, hopefully with office tenants starting to move into that building, maybe someone will eventually want the gargantuan-looking retail space on the first floor...


JD says: (1/30/14 12:53 PM)
Not sure that's ever going to be retail there, but I guess we will see.


Weaver says: (1/30/14 1:00 PM)
Is it the NAB? link


JES says: (1/30/14 1:02 PM)
Oh is that designed to be additional office space on the ground floor fronting L? It sure looks retail-ish.


JD says: (1/30/14 3:04 PM)
Way back when, before the building was getting started and before any of you were here :-), the developers waffled about how it *could* be retail space, but that wasn't necessarily a given. I imagine that the fact that this building has always had an eye toward GSA-type leases means that there'd be a level of security required that would perhaps keep retail out. But I don't know anything for sure about the retail, including how the current ownership feels about it.


Westnorth says: (1/30/14 3:58 PM)
The building was shopped to the Post earlier, per an Aug 5 report from Jonathan O'Connell. When Bezos moved Amazon's headquarters to the edge of downtown Seattle, they made sure to include several on-site restaurants -- of all the high-tech giants, they have perhaps the most urbane headquarters campus.


JD says: (1/30/14 4:00 PM)
Yes, it was, and I haz a sad that it isn't the Post that's coming to the building. (Since I, you know, work there.)


JES says: (1/30/14 5:31 PM)
Isn't Akridge at Half Street also in the running to land the Post? I thought 1015 wasn't the only site in our 'hood that was mentioned.


JD says: (1/30/14 5:36 PM)
I am getting a sense that at this point is that Near Southeast is completely out of the running for the Post. WAAAAAAAH.


SWill says: (1/30/14 6:08 PM)
Any idea if The Wharf is still in the running?


JD says: (1/30/14 6:20 PM)
I don't think the Wharf is either, no.


JES says: (1/31/14 1:15 PM)
Lame.


ZoolanderANDtheBoYz says: (2/3/14 6:22 PM)
More on NLRB leasing 1015 half street- link


Westnorth says: (2/5/14 12:46 AM)
So, rumor puts the Post in NoMa? Makes sense, given the media concentration there (e.g., NPR, CNN, Fox, CQ/Economist), and especially if they do launch a Politico clone.
