On The Look Out

BHLDN to Georgetown

January 23, 2014

Anthropologie's wedding brand, BHLDN (as in beholden), is opening a shop-within-a-shop this spring at the Georgetown Anthropologie store on M Street.

In addition to bridal gowns, BHLDN's Georgetown shop will sell jewelry, accessories and décor. BHLDN bridal shops will also open within existing Anthropologie locations in New York and Boston. Their first, in Beverly Hills, opened last July. Free-standing  BHLDN boutiques are in Houston and Chicago.

Proposed 2040 Metrorail Network Includes Georgetown Stop

December 12, 2013

Remember when Georgetown voted down the Metro?  Many regret that decision and consider it a major reason for the area's ever growing traffic congestion, especially along Wisconsin Avenue and M Street.

But now, a new planning map for 2040 by Metro shows a proposed loop around downtown D.C., and includes a stop for Georgetown. The map also shows other new stations, another line in Virginia, and trains circling downtown.

The loop's northern route would travel under M, N or P Street. It would cross the Potomac River in two places, and in Arlington, would run from Rosslyn to the Pentagon.

Tell us what you think.
