The fourth annual Shaw Main Streets Development Forum will be held on Thursday, September 27, 2007, at 6:30 PM at Shaw Middle School, 925 Rhode Island Avenue, NW, in the Percy L. Ellis, Jr. Auditorium. Presenters from the developers and government agencies responsible for major projects along 7th and 9th Streets in central Shaw will share the latest designs for and information on the O Street Market, Kelsey Gardens, Convention Center Hotel, City Center/Old Convention Center Site, Broadcast Center One, Howard Theater, and other projects. Participants will also have an opportunity to ask questions about these plans.
In addition, the results of the latest Shaw Main Streets Desired New Business Survey will be announced. The survey, conducted both online and via printed surveys distributed throughout the neighborhood, will help guide the attraction of new businesses to existing and new retail spaces in Shaw. Past surveys led to the attraction of business types now in place, including banks, sit-down restaurants, and coffee shops.
Admission to this event is free, and no reservations are required. For more information, visit www.shawmainstreets.com or call 202-265-SHAW.
