A year round farmers market would be awesome! I do think the Freight House area, if properly developed would be a better setting. For some reason, I just can't picture it in the bottom floor of a condo tower. Can't wait to see the new rendering(s) of the canopy!

I'm cool with the post office moving as long as the employees go with it and the building stays the same. What is it about a guy in a bike helmet with a package going to France that sets government workers off? -M

This is all very helpful and good news! very exciting! I am aware that most of the retail plans that are talked about are all within close proximity of each other. What are your opinions about the "retail core" being around Lake and Evans? Would the common shopper rather shop on 4th st, or closer to the river. After they are done shopping would they walk, drive, or bike to the river. Will there be a connecting bike/walking paths? To me it seems a little disconnected, but I am loving the idea of something new on 4th st. Anything to improve what it is now, not that its bad.... 10 North Virginia retail concept..... thats more like it! I say, keep it close to the downtown! This may help our "pedestrian friendly" downtown area. People won't be tempted to drive from Lake St. to the downtown. (not that it's far, I am thinking of those shopping in 6 inch heels wouldn't want to walk 10 blocks) Kings Inn... RIP my beautiful crack house.... RIP. Again, Thank you for the updates, This is very inspiring!

Great news on the Riverwalk towers retail spot possibly getting occupied. Is there a time frame on when this will happen...That retail spot is in desperate need of work.

I am really excited about the facade improvement pilot. Although I think it would better serve one of the other proposed locations like second street between Arlington and Sierra. This stretch of retail could really use a face lift, and it pulls the work they are trying to do outside of just Virginia Street.
