According to Monday's Post
, WMATA apparently plans to vacate its property on Half Street between N and M Street
s (just north of the baseball stadium
site and across from the Half Street entrance to the Navy Yard subway station). They had posted a request for offers, with a deadline of May 13, but they pulled the solicitation two days before the deadline, saying that the District requested that they wait until the master plan
for the area is finished, in June. The Post
tidbit mentions that Monument Realty
had been planning to submit an offer to turn the property into an office, housing and retail complex. (Monument recently completed a $10 million deal that includes land on Half Street just across from the stadium site, and says it is negotiating at least six other deals on the same block.)
