The editor and wife also shopped the O Street Market for several years. There was a meat stall, run by the Hohensee's out of Pennsylvania. Also a great Korean food stall, run by Mr. Hang. Very good noodles and just right fried chicken. Mr. Hang also put one daughter through Reed and another somewhere similar. Last heard, and many years ago, he opened a restaurant in Northern Virginia.
Two acounts of the project are here and here. Pictures, too.
Mayor Fenty has scheduled a press conference for this Friday at
12:15 pm (note this is the new time) at the O Street Market to announce
the TIF legislation that will be subject of the public roundtable on
Tuesday. Councilmembers Evans and Brown will be attending as well.
The Roadside folks have asked for $35m in TIF assistance to cover the cost of the
infrastructure, the preservation and restoration of the historic
building, restoration of the 8th Street right-of-way, development of the
below grade truck court for all loading and servicing of the project,
and construction of 563 parking spaces.
