  Woodmont East is starting to take shape! The Montgomery County Planning Board gave preliminary approvals last Thursday to the JBG Companies, which are now actively moving ahead in plans to develop Woodmont East. The last vacant parcel next to Bethesda Row is going to be host to a large-scale, mixed-use project which will include 208,579 square feet of office space in one tower, and 250 residential units and 9000 square feet of retail space in the other tower. Running between the two will be the much loved Capital Crescent Trail, which will remain open for, at the very least, most of the construction period. "The trail will come right through the two of them," said Matt Blocher of JBG. "As far as what happened at the hearing, [the approval] permits us to close the trail for up to five...

  On spring break with my 15 year old, I tried to race one of her friends on the slalom course and it ended predictably - My daughter's friend won and I fell and fractured my leg - at least I didn't tear my ACL. Instead, I spent the rest of my spring break recuperating on the sofa in the condo while my daughter and her friend skied all over Vail mountain. I was pretty happy with my computer and time to work without interruptions and grateful for the really superior medical treatment that I received from the Vail doctors. Not surprisingly, they know knee injuries inside and out! Then I came home and needed to see a doctor here in DC.  The Vail doctors referred me to a doctor who had just moved to DC from Vail.  I had complete confidence in this newly relocated doctor since he is trained ...

After months of secrecy (that really wasn't a secret), the new Apple store has opened on Bethesda Ave in Bethesda. The new space is directly across from the old Apple store, but easily three times as big as the old location.  I ducked in to the new location today to retrieve my 15 year old daughter who was hungrily eyeing a new computer - funny how her "old" IBM is suddenly unsalvageable! The store is beautiful, even on a grey rainy day, but I was struck by how empty it seemed.  There probably were just as many people in the new store as there had been on similar days in the space across the street, but the new space is so big that people seemed lost in it.  The old space which almost crushed everyone into one another created a visual energy level that said to passersby that something e...
