Construction Looms

Harrison Square construction date set

"The city announced in a legal ad Wednesday that construction on Harrison Square will begin Oct. 30 and be finished by March 9, 2009.

The $125 million-to-$160 million downtown revitalization project includes a $30 million baseball stadium, a $35 million Courtyard by Marriott hotel, a parking garage, and $14 million in retail development and condominiums. The baseball stadium is expected to be ready by the beginning of the 2009 Wizards season.

The city began acquiring properties for the development last year. Demolition of those properties began in July."

Great. It's about time. Up next: Kalb's ridiculous lawsuit.

are you serious??

I might be a little flipped, but Kalb has made no secrets that he will do anything to kill this project. So I am just making an assumption that a lawsuit will be coming.

I fully expect that Mr. Kalb's final act will be to pull a tiannamen square and just stand in front of an earth mover.

And of course, the people in Tiannamen Square had NOTHING to be upset about did they?
