Walter Reed redevelopment will likely move much faster than other planned developments in DC

This week the Washington City Paper's Housing Complex column takes on some of the concerns that our neighbors have expressed about the Walter Reed site; mainly, that it's in danger of languishing for a long period of time with no redevelopment, as we've seen happen at various other vacant sites in our area. It's unlikely, however, that the Walter Reed site will suffer a similar fate, mostly due to the timeline for its closure and redevelopment that's been issued by the U.S. Army.

This morning, the Washington DC Economic Partership alerted its Twitter followers that its representatives were touring the Walter Reed campus with retailers who expressed interest in the site at last May's ICSC conference in Las Vegas. The WDCEP has not replied to my prodding to give a hint as to which retailers were on the tour.
