Graduate School Usa Shelves Plans To Open Campus In Southwest Waterfront Development

Department of Agriculture, had planned to more than double its size by opening a new campus in a planned redevelopment of the Districts Southwest Waterfront. Those plans have been shelved, the school confirmed this week, leaving the $1.5 billion mixed-use project without an anchor tenant for the office building it plans while it searches for investors willing to provide $750 million toward construction.

McBee Strategic finds a new calling Catherine Ho McBee said the push for a digital strategy offering is not to offset losses in traditional lobbying revenue. But the firm, like many others, is seeing a steady downward slide in lobbying earnings, a phenomenon tied largely to gridlock in Washington. Redeveloping the Southwest Waterfront has been discussed for decades and is one of the Districts largest economic development projects. Know as the Wharf , its first phase alone once scheduled to begin early this year calls for 225,000-square-feet of office space, 180,000-square-feet of retail, 790 residential units, two hotels and 1,325 parking spaces. The school had planned on taking the lions share of that office space, about 190,000 square feet at the corner of Maine Avenue and Ninth Street SW, raising the prospect of a waterfront swarming with students attending day and evening classes. Jim Huske, a senior vice president at the Graduate School, said the administration informed developer Monty Hoffman, chief executive of PN Hoffman, that it would pull out of the project due to government cutbacks and budget uncertainty. We had to move out of that and we let Monty know that probably a year and a half or two years ago now because the market became unstable, Huske said. Huske that with sequestration and the government shutdown, the school would remain in smaller space in LEnfant Plaza for the time being.
