    Any idea as to when construction will start? I assume it’s a long way off still.

    Groundbreaking is a long way off. Too difficult to really say how far off – but I’d guess two years…

    Does any one know how far the 5th and Eye lot extends to the north? (i.e. will it replace the rundown buildings including the former Fun Fair video location?) If not, I can’t understand why nothing is being done with that space. You’d think someone would want to develop it given the foot traffic that City Vista has generated.

    @LResident – word is that Donohoe ultimately would like to acquire the entire length of the east side of the 900 block of 5th Street NW. Basically the project would then consume Eye to K Street along 5th. I’ve also heard that the city selected this development team, in part, because of these ambitious plans to develop the entire block. Inevitably a one or more of the land holders of the lots along the block see this as an opportunity to leverage into a big windfall and are asking for much more $$ than their land is worth.
