  • All I know is that I’d hate myself and my life if I had to put these kinds of decks together all the time. So many smiling people on the promenade! Is there enough diversity?! So many back tag lines!

  • I’m digging Forest City’s proposal, but I’m partial to the work they’ve done down here at the Navy Yard. I appreciate the reconnection of the site with the surrounding community by opening the streets up to through traffic again in the Roadside proposal.

  • There better be a whole lot of 70 & 79 buses. Based on the time it took to redo the 10 blocks of Sherman Avenue, the 60 blocks from K to Walter Reed should only take 12 years or so.

  • Anyone know when they will decide on the final developer? As a resident of Brightwood, I’m just hoping to see this thing start moving (though I know it won’t… forever). Also, very VERY hopeful on the Wegmans plan, and sincerely hope they win.

  • Thanks for posting all of these. I think Forest City is may favorite. I’ve like what they’ve done with The Yards so their past performance is promising (for eg, actually bringing in some local business). The Hines-Urban Atlantic seems ok too. Not too keen on so much space being devoted to medical services in the Roadside Development proposal. And though I will likely get slammed for saying this, not so keen on SOME being located right by where LAMB/Yu Ying have space as outlined in their proposal. It looks like they think having Wegmans sign on as an official partner is a “get”. But if Wegmans wants to go in, then I’m sure they will work with whatever developer is selected.

  • None of these really look amazing to me. But, if we’re going on past DC experience, I agree that Forest City looks like a good call. Hines should be punted out of the room for those plastic-clad nonsensical boxes in City Center. I’ve only heard terrible things about Bozzuto and am worried to see them as a Roadside partner.

    “Wegmans” sounds great, but the Hines proposed timeline wouldn’t bring them in for several years, so it wouldn’t really affect anyone any times soon.

  • I like Forest City but consider their partner Menkiti group a bunch of crooks who shouldn’t be allowed to build legos, much less anything else. Which makes me lean to the Hines proposal.
