    Maybe I haven't been paying attention, but the 2.2mil sqft development, two blocks east of MVS and by the Wilkes Company, is news to me. With or without a 6,000 pax entertainment venue, its arrival would be great for the area.

    @R&A – follow the link I provided for Mount Vernon Place (MVP) to see past coverage of that project.

    MVP is 2.2 million square feet of mixed use and has already delivered several buildings: Madrigal, Sonata and AIPAC. It will eventually deliver office buildings on K Street.

    I do not believe those MVP parcels on K Street are big enough for this theatre. Presently those MVP lots had been pegged for 450,000 square foot buildings. That number assumes building vertically for 12 stories so the land footprint is basically 450,000 divided by 12. This theatre would need most of it's space on the ground level. I would not think a land footprint between 35000 and 45000 is suitable for this theatre.

    According to this Newschannel 8 video the Capitol Riverfront BID thinks they have a better than 50/50 shot of landing the venue.

    as long as it isnt natl harbor…
    one would think the steuarts would want to get in on this action but I'm going to have white hair dyed purple before they get around to considering development of their 2 large weedy parcels.

    i seem to remember paul millstein from douglas dev. talking about ongoing negotiations with a major venue, he used the words "knock your socks off." i assumed he was referring to house of blues…but maybe MSG?
    would DD's south parcel be big enough? plans could be adjusted…

    Honestly? Build it on TOP of the Convention Center. Anything to get some eyes on the street at night in that area.
