John it is very difficult to make predictions. There are so many factors that weigh into these considerations. One of the biggest factors is the economy (there's the e word). The previous administration and current administration in DC are committed to the H Street Corridor. They actually call it the "Atlas District" and I've seen it really grow over the past few years. I think while Ft. Totten is a growing area, the Atlas District is going to move so much faster and will be the new U Street.
