Stadium Roundtable/Baseball Nixes RFK
Dec 13, 2005 11:14 AM
I imagine there will be tidbits throughout the day coming out of the council roundtable on the stadium, but I'll start now with the text of CFO Gandhi's prepared statement. UPDATE: Here is Mayor Williams's testimony, and an AP story about it. And don't forget the streaming video. UPDATE II: According to the AP, MLB President Bob DuPuy wrote to Linda Cropp today, telling her that baseball's other 29 teams (who together own the Nationals) are opposed to RFK as an alternative. Oops.... UPDATE III: "Baseball Opposes Moving Stadium" from the Post summarizes the day's events at the council roundtable and in the MLB chambers. UPDATE IV: The WashTimes's story on the day's events paints a bleaker picture of whether the council will approve the lease at its vote on Dec. 20.

South Capitol Street Waterfront District Recommendations
Dec 13, 2005 11:06 AM
The Anacostia Waterfront Corporation has posted the "South Capitol Street Waterfront District Summary of Recommendations" that it presented at the "master developers" announcement on Monday. Nothing terribly new in it for JDLand readers (except perhaps noting their slight hedge of using "South Capitol Street Waterfront District" instead of "Ballpark District"), but it does also include the entire list of companies in the two development teams, and one rendering of what Half Street south of M may look like down the road, which I promptly snagged and put at the top of my Ballpark District page (to which I've also added some new photos of the WASA land).
