Introducing: Aren’t They Building…

GM gets asked all the time about various projects around Georgetown. The questions normally start off something like “aren’t they building a…”

Well, you may have noticed a new link at the top of the page here at the Georgetown Metropolitan that addresses these frequent inquires.  Just click on “Aren’t They Building…” and you will find a list of all the potential projects that GM knows about with a link back to his article on the project. An official opening date is listed, if any is available. If no date is available (or the official date is obviously not going to happen) GM provides his own guess at when it’ll come.

If GM left anything out, let him know.

    Thanks Dave.

    And thanks too Norm. That type of project is also meant to be covered by this. I think your skepticism on the timing is also apt. I’ll add it to the list.

  4. What might also be a fun project – not that you personally want to take this on – is to shame property owners of Georgetown commercial buildings that are falling to rack and ruin either because they are poorly maintained, or simply standing vacant and making the village look bad.

    I could be misanthropic enough to do that myself, had I the time, but then I would probably end up having to go to confession even more than I already have to.

  5. Great feature but it the Wisconsin Avenue (and K Street/Benning Road) streetcar route should be included!
