WBJ profile of DMPED Deputy Mayor Brian Kenner mentions the McMillan project

This week's Washington Business Journal includes an article profiling DC DMPED Deputy Mayor Brian Kenner.

Since it is a subscriber content, I cannot include the entire article here.

But I have included the paragraph where Brian Kenner mentions Bloomingdale's McMillan project.

Here is a pic of Brian Kenner that I got from the Internet.

Brian Kenner , his office bookshelves dominated by Midwest college football helmets, is the District’s economic development quarterback, running the huddle and executing on Mayor Muriel Bowser’s vision.
“I was actually happy with the progress,” Kenner said. “The thing about McMillan, Walter Reed, St. Elizabeths, Capitol Crossing — those are 1.5, 2 million-square-foot projects. Those things don’t happen in three years. They are 10-, 15-year total buildouts. These are long, large scale projects. The important thing is you just have to continue to make progress, and then when the market’s right, when the timing’s right, when the council’s right, when everything’s right, they just kind of blossom.”
