Welcome back to the Plywood Report. See anything new happening in your neck of the woods? Let us know.
1) Navy Yard: Whole Foods Market may or may not grace Southeast with its presence this year, reports the Washington Post. But, of course, there's a hitch: The developer, William C. Smith and Co., says it would take $8 million in tax breaks to get the natural foods grocer. Whole Foods. The annual tax break "would cover requests by Whole Foods including an additional level of underground parking, extra elevators and higher ceilings on the bottom floor." [PRE-PLYWOOD]
2) Clarendon: The Mad Rose Tavern is set to open to the public tomorrow at 4 p.m., according to ARLnow, after finally acquiring all the necessary permits. It'll be open evenings only for the rest of this week, but starting Monday the restaurant will be serving its New American fare for lunch service, too. [POST-PLYWOOD]
