@AWalkerintheCity -- you can look at it in 4 ways.

1. Totally f*ed, nothing "new" since the remodeling of the Safeway.

2. Jesus, the redevelopment at the Petworth Metro 1.8 miles away, plus even the ongoing redevelopment of the little business cluster between Upshur and what Crittenden? as a budding interesting restaurant district means that revitalization energy is hitting the corridor, of course, it's most concentrated at the Metro station.

3. Walter Reed!

4. Fort Totten and all that's going on there.

5. Triangulation of development intensity between Ft. Totten, Petworth, and Walter Reed will lead to an intensification at places where there are build out opportunities.

This is something that I am gonna write about soon in terms of eastern H St./Capitol Hill/Res. 13/Anacostia River, but it's the same kind of thing, you can see all these things happening, and if you have a sense of the continuum, of how various revitalization efforts bubbled up and their various paths in various neighborhoods, you see how this plays or can play out.

The thing is that progress is assisted by "good developers" (like a Donatelli or an Abdo) and is hindered by "bad" developers (like most CDCs or Marvin Jawer or Foulger-Pratt).
