“Do you have picture updates for the other angles of Park Place above the Petworth Metro? I am very glad for the one angle you usually show, but would love to see others.. especially of the smaller scale part.”

“Perhaps I’ve missed it but would be Great if you had an insider’s update on the construction above the GA/Petworth Metro station…any new word on when it will be completed, which retail stores will fill it, will the condos be owned/rented, and whether any other restaurants/bars/etc might be opening nearby soon.”
Last Monday I broke the news that Gillian Clark formerly of Colorado Kitchen has signed a letter of intent to open up a restaurant in one of the spots. I also believe a Mocha Hut is slated to go into one of the spots. I believe the other spots will be filled by similar folks that are in the Highland Park building in Columbia Heights. If I was a betting man, and I am most definitely a betting man, I’d say we’ll probably get something like a Potbelly’s but that is pure speculation. I believe the project is supposed to be finished in 2009. I’ve recently heard some scuttlebutt that the project may be going back to condos but I have no confirmation on that. Will update as soon as I get more info.
