Convention Center's Bad Press
It's not a good press day for the convention center. First, as Anon pointed out in the comments, two articles appear in today's Washington Times: one focusing on the Convention Center's failings relating to its retail spaces, and one discussing a lawsuit filed by nearby businesses regarding promises made by the WCCA relating to grants to abate the effects of the construction of the Center. Second, as several blogs have posted, there's an article in today's WaPo about the fact that the proposed Convention Center Hotel at 9th and Mass (stretching over L Street to the north) may not move forward due to all of the delays, the hotel boom ending, the credit market, and rising construction costs.
