It's that time of year again — time to stir hopes that Eataly is eventually coming to D.C.

Housing Complex talks to the developers of Capital Crossing, the rumored future site of the Italian mega-market, who say it's happening, probably not until 2017. From the article:

Now, though, Property Group Partners founder and president Jeff Sussman says definitively that Eataly is happening. Asked where the negotiations stand, he replies, "We stand in good shape with that. They’ll be coming." A final agreement has yet to be signed, and an Eataly spokeswoman didn't respond to a request for comment.

Eataly's leadership has confirmed D.C. is on the short-list several times before, but haven't given a timeline or exact location. The complex, which includes several markets and restaurants from Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich, has expanded to Chicago. Eater has reached out to Eataly's team as well. Update: A spokeswoman says there are no updates to share on the possibility of coming to D.C.
