Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • Everyone seems to hate the look of EastBanc’s proposed building at the Exxon station, even Anthony Lanier (although it’s important to note that Lanier isn’t backing down on his plans to build a five story building on that site).

Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • Blogger stops by Ristorante Piccolo
  • Second half of that Anthony Lanier interview. Select quote: “The developer would rather see the main street closed to through traffic to keep people from outside of the city using it as a thoroughfare to go downtown. “We should be like every other civilized city: convert into a pedestrian-oriented environment,” said Lanier.” This is why GM would elect Lanier as Mayor of Georgetown, if such position still existed.

A native of Vienna (Austria, not Virginia), Lanier arrived to Georgetown in the 80’s. He founded East Banc in 1987, and has since then gradually brought the best of European urbanism to our village through fantastic projects like Cady’s Alley.

Last night, Lanier spoke off-the-cuff for over an hour discussing his projects, both past and future, and the challenges we face making Georgetown even better.
