BREAKING GROUND: 3 DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS IN THE WORKS!

Image result for breaking ground

Within the real estate industry, especially in commercial real estate, many projects are discussed, proposed, and negotiated for months or even years. There is usually a lot of time that passes before the end consumer (yes, that is you reading this) actually sees a shovel or a crane cracking open the ground. While some of these projects are purely residential, some are government-owned, and others mixed-use. Regardless of their orientation, they all play a role in reshaping and evolving the cultural landscape of the nation’s capital. BREAKING GROUND: 3 DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS IN THE WORKS!

“Part luxury home, and part hidden fortress, this awesome Kent mansion is like the house I’d live in if my face, body type, personality, and lack of discernible talent hadn’t prevented me from becoming famous and wealthy.”

GETTING JUICY IN DC: THE DISTRICT’S BEST JUICE BARS

Here’s a rhetorical question for you: When did juice get so good?! Seriously, though! One year, the best the world of juice has to offer is removing pulp (ew, thank you very much), and before I know it there is a whole world of juice that has been born that involves mixing fruits and adding spice and way more antioxidants than I ever knew existed. Juice is no longer a sad substitute for kids that aren’t allowed to drink coffee yet, it’s…it’s a thing. If you order juice nowadays, it’s no longer assumed that you must be fighting off some strange form of the bubonic plague, instead, people will probably think that you’re as hip as they come or that you have your life super together.

Tomorrow is National Bike to Work Day, or as bicyclists refer to it, “a normal Friday.”  I gave up all non-bike commute methods years ago, and it’s increased my quality of life immensely, even when you take into account all the times I’ve angrily bashed a lane-hogging driver’s side mirror with my u-lock and then had to quickly ride the wrong way up a one-way street to escape as they fumble in their glove compartment for their taser.

3 LOVELY FARM-TO-TABLE RESTAURANTS IN D.C.

Farm-to-table business models allow customers to enjoy meals created with locally sourced, fresh ingredients. While in the strictest sense of the term, farm-to-table eating happens on a farm itself, farm-to-table, farm-to-fork and even farm-to-school or –hospital movements focus on serving food from farms in the nearby vicinity of the kitchen, often within a 100 mile radius.
