Georgetown and the Jesuits have always made the wrong decisions, or the right ones, but too late, with respect to holding or acquiring land. Consider that they fecklessly sold the “College Villa,” now the site of McLean Gardens, in the late 1800s. More recently, they turned down or mismanaged offers to expand to Visitation’s surplus property (now expensive town houses at 35th and Reservoir), the DC Transit “Car Barn,” the Wormley School site, and last, but by no means least, the Mount Vernon College Campus (now GW at Mount Vernon). They have no one to blame but themselves for being landlocked and out of room.
