Since when did the store at H St & 1st St NW become known as the "Gonzaga Walmart"? Is it simply the personal usage, based on proximity, by the original author on a different blog? If so I would suggest that GGW not encourage it by repeating it. I am an alumnus and have paid attention to that development specifically and have never heard of any involvement by the school in the project at all. (And believe - that organization knows about real estate deals.) I am supportive of Walmart, but casually associating this project with an unrelated private institution sends the wrong signals. If one is not satisfied with what until now has been the official name - "New Jersey Ave", which I agree lack precision, and if "H St" is too prosaic, then why not associtate the store with the much larger landmark directly across the street - the GPO? Or even with the party actually connected to the developement, JBG?
