WBJ’s Michael Neibauer reports:

“Gateway Georgia Avenue Main Street has quietly and quite suddenly disappeared, abandoning $150,000 in taxpayer funds and setting back the effort to revitalize the upper Northwest D.C. corridor.

The Main Street program, an arm of the Gateway-Georgia Avenue Revitalization Corp., assisted businesses and recruited companies along a corridor roughly from the Walter Reed Army Medical Center to the District-Maryland border. It was expected to play a role in the redevelopment of the medical center campus, scheduled to be closed next year.”
