The historic Armed Forces Retirement Home in Northwest D.C. opened its gates Monday morning to more than 150 commercial real estate experts interested in redeveloping part of the sprawling 272-acre campus.Representatives from Jair Lynch Real Estate Partners, Lerner Enterprises, and Quadrangle Development Corp. were among those who turned out to learn about the prospect of redeveloping an 80-acre swath of the site by North Capitol Street and Pershing Drive NW, where there's the potential for nearly 4.4 million square feet of mixed-use. The campus is bounded by a number of institutional users, including Catholic University of America and Children's National Medical Center, and is about a mile east of the Georgia Ave.-Petworth Metro station.
