1. oops one, that's 5 points.

2. oops two, one of the other things that's happening in that area is a little project by a CDC, mostly housing for veterans with some retail, but the CDC did do a nice facade improvement of a little shopping center at Sheridan.

3. oops three, if the Walmart wasn't coming, I imagine that after the success of the redevelopment of the Safeway at Petworth into a mixed use project (building approvals are ongoing) with a new revitalized grocery on the ground floor and housing above, that would have led to Safeway doing the same thing at the Piney Branch location.

4. E.g., about the eastern Capitol Hill energy, a multiunit project is going up across from Eastern High School (if you don't know the city, that's a holy s*** moment and really communicates a lot about the general revitalization energy in "nice" areas).

5. oops four, I didn't make clear what I meant about "triangulation." I meant that the Petworth, Fort Totten, and Walter Reed sites make up points of a triangle and then intensification becomes encouraged within the triangle, even for sites previously seen as marginal (like 16th and East Capitol was, not too long ago).
