Morning Real Estate Review


Waiting on Walmart (Examiner)  While Walmart's bold and impending arrival in DC has been missed by no one, the retail behemoth has yet to make make much progress, having broken ground on only one site as it seemingly finds itself mired in the development process.

Montgomery County lagging in filling office space (Examiner)  Maryland office vacancy has remained flat while DC has been low and northern Virginia has been falling as Washington D.C.'s southern neighbor has gotten much more benefit from government stimulus money.  Montgomery County has fallen behind, but PG County is lagging even further.

USGBC to hold first green summit for affordable homes (Realestaterama) The leader in green policy will hold a 2 day "summit" at the San Francisco during the Greenbuild International Conference & Expo.

DC United's new owner sees a pathway to a new stadium (SportingNews)  Despite its long history of failing to get financing for a stadium, owners think now might be the time to get a deal done, and city leaders are backing the plan.

Construction spending reaches highest level since 2009 (Realestaterama)  The good numbers for June are 7% higher than June 2011 numbers, evidencing a small trend in more building in both residential and commercial projects.

The DC United story link is broken.

The DC United story link is still broken. Are you paying attention to the comments, Ken?

IMGoph,

Sorry, I fixed the link, not sure what happened there. Yep, we are paying attention to the comments, but had some staffing issues lately (fixed as of today, thankfully), and a flood of spurious spam, which we have a hard time keeping on top of. We are also in the midst of a completely new format to be unveiled next month, I thought you'd like to know, so our energy is spread across a number of places right now. I think within 2 weeks you'll notice a big difference.

Sounds like you got a new hire, then. I thought I saw a different format (temporarily) a few weeks ago, but it disappeared quickly. Were you testing out a new layout then?

Anyway, good to hear about progress on your end. Excited to see what's next!
