Tick Tock Tick Tock – UPDATED!!

I had heard last week that the selection for 5th and Eye could be announced today. DMPED has made their recommendation to Mayor Fenty late last week. Hopefully the choice will fall in line with the community endorsement.

UPDATE (9/18/2008 12:45pm):

The Mayor of the District of Columbia will announce the winning development team for the 5th & I Project tomorrow morning at 10:30 at the site. The Mayor’s office will distribute a press release following the event. Your attendance at the press event would be greatly appreciated.

I cannot attend. If anyone does please report back. If you can take a snapshot too that would be super awesome!

    I bet it’s JBG. They are in with the DC gov, and acquired those nearby parcels for a reason…

    That said, I’m hoping it’s Donahoe

    There will certainly be a big rant on this blog tomorrow if JBG is named. The JBG proposal totally lacked specificity and was the only finalist that did not disclose planned hotel or retail partners. The rendering is an ugly abomination.

    If it is JBG I will definitely protest! They gave a horrible presentation and do not stand by their commitments.
