Dan Reed: As I see it, the main impediment is really the approval process.

I think that's definitely a big factor. But, I still think it would be interesting to see what major developers say. They're a pretty key stakeholder in this, so it would be worth talking to them (if time permits, access is available, etc.).

AWITC: I mean its not like just anyone can suddenly be a competent developer, and its not like any developer who has been specializing in McMansions can turn around and to a competent job with the kind of thing thats now in such hot demand.

That's true but there are plenty of major mixed use developers who do projects in multiple jurisdictions. And, a very small share of them have a project in DTSS compared to Bethesda, Clarendon, Shaw, NoMa, H ST, etc.. DTSS has the potential to be on a list of hot places like that.
