To get us off the all-baseball-all-the-time track, here's a nice piece from Mid-Atlantic Construction
magazine about the construction
of the new DOT HQ
. Occupancy is planned for January, 2007, and at that time the Southwest Plaza should also open, which includes the renovation of a nearby historic brick building that once housed a large electrical transformer into an 11,000-sq.-ft. restaurant and retail center (scroll down my DOT page
to see pictures, since you can no longer see this building from M Street).
