Both BF Saul and the University of the District of Columbia are looking for retail tenants: BF Saul for the ground floor level of the Park Van Ness development at the current site of Van Ness Square; and across the street, UDC for 4200 Connecticut Avenue, which houses the David A. Clarke School of Law.
The community can play a critical role in this search. ANC 3F chairman Adam Tope asked Mark Furstenberg to consider Van Ness for his new bakery, and look what happened.
Let’s tap into our creativity and come up with some out-of-the-box ideas. Who knows, they just might work. Think about the neighborhood’s current amenities and ideals: Rock Creek Park, hiking, sustainability, green, international (embassies), food, and don’t forget mushrooms. If Logan Circle residents could get Whole Foods to open a location on P Street back in December of 2000, we can put our talented community to work to get the retail we want in the ‘hood.’
So, please ponder what you want and need at Van Ness and help BF Saul and UDC come up with specific ideas for tenants by taking the survey below (or click here if the survey isn’t showing up in your web browser). We will collect responses through November 1st, and report on the results by mid-November.
