From WBJ, a few days ago: "Madison Square Garden LP, owner of the famed New York City arena that bears its name, is looking to open a major entertainment venue in the District. The sports, entertainment and media company began contacting the office of Valerie Santos, deputy mayor for planning and economic development, and major landowners in early summer[...] According to sources close to the company, MSG would open a venue of a 6,000 seats or more, requiring up to 100,000 square feet near shopping and public transit." The head of the Washington DC Economic Partnership apparently made presentations to MSG "on sites near the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and in the area around Nationals Park."
In this Breaking Ground blog post today, Jonathan O'Connell tries to guess where MSG might be looking, and includes the Yards and Half Street (either the Monument or Akridge sides) as possibilities. And this NewsChannel 8 report interviews Michael Stevens from the BID about it all.

This would be a lot of fun. I actually want to begin working with the city to bring some outdoor concerts to the Park at the Yards. Seriously, I think we need some open air punk rock concerts - at least two a summer. I am going to initiate conversations in the next few months.

This would be a huge coup for the neighborhood. MSG has the funds to start building almost immediately, not having to wait until the economy turns around like some smaller developers. This could be the boost that we need to get things going again around here. A concert venue along with the ballpark would encourage retail, restaurants, bars, etc. to begin building now as well.


MJM says: (8/13/09 3:10 PM)
Interesting, what would be the point of a 6K seat venue? There is plenty of land to start right away. And while there is "nothing" around yet this could help spur development.


MJM says: (8/13/09 3:20 PM)
Maybe I should read the article first and then that might explain what the venue is for. That would be a nice addition to the area, something other than baseball to draw folks there.
