Worst Idea EVER
Sorry folks, you won’t be seeing any new condos and shops in Southeast anytime soon. Deals to expand the area around the proposed new baseball stadium in Anacostia fell through last week, when the development group failed to reach Friday’s deadline. Unfortunately, now they don’t even have plans for a parking structure for the stadium, and the $21million in the budget isn’t enough to cover garages. But, paving over what little grass is left in DC is a better idea, right?
Here’s the best part:
“[Mayor] Williams had promised that the development would reinvigorate the waterfront and bring new tax revenue to offset the city’s $611 million investment of public money in the stadium project.”
So now, not only will we lose the opportunity to earn the huge chunk of change back, but we’re facing another lonely stadium in the middle of nowhere? The Nats suck anyway, when are these people going to admit this was a huge mistake?
