Commercial Development News

Prepare for what seems to be an oxymoron: The upcoming ANC 2F Community Development Committee (CDC) meeting has some interesting items on the agenda. Specifically, redevelopment of the old Convention Center site and the O Street Market/Giant will be discussed.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 22nd at the Thomas Circle Washington Plaza Hotel (the same site as the ANC meetings). The above agenda items are toward the bottom of the list; my guess is that you could arrive around 8 and still get the bulk of the information.

If you want background on these two redevelopment issues, check out the following:

I hope they are able to retain the shell of the O St. Market--I know that that's the current plan, but you never know. I read that it can cost 3-4 times as much to rehab an existing site than to start from scratch.
