The Capitol Riverfront BID held its 7th annual meeting today, this time in the PNC Diamond Club at Nationals Park.
The centerpiece of the event (other than the food and networking) was the presentation of the 2013 Annual Report, a bonanza of facts and figures about not only the services that the BID provides but also the state of the neighborhood's progress.
And after a few tough years on the neighborhood's economic development front, the latest report has plenty to trumpet, from the opening of seven restaurants to the progress on four under-construction residential projects to showy newly announced developments (particularly the Whole Foods and Icon movie theater projects). All of which of course you already know by being loyal JDLand readers!
I could go more in depth to pull out a bullet list of tidbits, but I'm all about empowering self-education, so here's the report for you to read. And yet, since we live in a Quirky Infographic world these days, I couldn't help myself to grab the two pages above for an easy at-a-glance peek.
UPDATE: City Paper's Aaron Weiner reports on the other part of the annual meeting, a presentation by Heather Arnold of Streetsense about how the neighborhood's retail development has been "overcompensating" for what was a shortage a few years ago, and that the area needs to look at some alternate ground-floor uses. "'We're not going to put retail on the ground floor of every building,' she said. 'My greatest fear is that we'd build all these retail spaces and have a high vacancy rate.'"
