January 2014 LDDI Winter Meeting

On Friday, January 24th, LDDI hosted its annual winter meeting in northern Virginia.  The meeting was held at the yet-to-be-completed Reston Metro Plaza.  While the unfinished venue was a bit chilly, it provided an interesting backdrop for the meeting’s guest speakers who talked about the public private partnership that helped to advance the plaza beyond simply a stop on the Silver Line and into a  transit-oriented, mixed-use, urban employment center.  LDDI would like to thank Christopher Clemente (Comstock Partners LC), Robert Stalzer (Fairfax County), and Luis Fernandez (Fernandez and Associates) for providing meeting attendees with an interesting talk.  Meeting attendees were awarded two PDH credits, and as always the meeting provided excellent networking opportunities. Keep an eye out for our summer meeting to be held later this year in Richmond.
