Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Borders Bankruptcy leads to store closings in DC, MD, and VA

The bankruptcy of the Borders Company will result in the closing of 200 stores across the United States. In the DC region, stores in DC at 18th and L Street NW Downtown and in Friendship Heights on Wisconsin Avenue will be closing (another store downtown closed a couple years ago), as will stores in Bowie, on Rockville Pike/Kensington and the Boulevard at Cap Centre in Largo in Maryland, and in Vienna in Northern Virginia (other stores are closing elsewhere in Virginia).
