A ROSE IS A ROSE. WHAT'S IN A NAME?
A story on the Mt. Vernon Square neighborhood in the WaPo reports that altogether, about 120,000 SF of retail, more than 1,700 apartments and condominiums and 234,000 SF of offices are under construction in the neighborhood known as the Mount Vernon Triangle. The neighborhood was blighted but downtown is pushing north toward Mass. Ave., so these streets are changing fast.
Didn't we just read all this in the story about NOMA? Should the area north of Capitol Hill be called SoFlo, Capitol Hill North or Hell No (short for Hill North!)?
