Big shoutout to sponsor K3 Construction (formerly Kfoury): Just delivered 36k SF medical building in Manassas, and interior for Merrill Lynch Annapolis office. Now onto buildout of American Sociological Association on K St. Congrats!

Okay, so the Yankees got bounced by the Indians in the divisional series—perhaps spelling an end to the era of Joe Torre and Roger Clemens. But they won Game 3, and that’s the one that nice dad Mitchell Schear, otherwise known as powerhouse president of Vornado Charles E. Smith, flew his kids up to see Sunday.

The occasion? His son’s 18th birthday, though his 13-year old daughter got to go, too. Born in Brooklyn with high school in Westchester, Mitchell grew up as a “Mets and Jets” guy. But for the last 3 seasons, he and his kids have bonded over the Yankees.

When he’s not running around having fun, Mitchell’s running around managing and developing a huge 18M SF portfolio. Sipping his oversized cup of decaf with us this week at the Chevy Chase Circle Bread & Chocolate, he ticked off his projects: The Helmut Jahn trophy at 1999 K, 2101 L (the old Galileo building), a joint venture with PNC at 800 17th, the old Waterside Mall (now called “Waterfront”) with Forest City, a residential project on 25th in West End, and redeveloping an area in Rosslyn near Waterview with the Goulds, not to mention the repositioning of 8M SF of office, hotel and retail Vornado owns in Crystal City.

Come meet and hear much more from Mitchell at the Bisnow Breakfast & Schmooze, at the City Club on October 16, presented by the great Group Goetz Architects!

At Byrd Stadium on Saturday at the Maryland/Georgia Tech game, Drew Langsam of Turner Construction re-purposed the corporate flag in support of rookie Terps quarterback –true story!--Chris Turner. It made the difference. Terps won 28-26.

The camera-shy Turner employees reluctantly pose for us during their parking lot tailgate. We particularly like the spirited guy in red in the front row. He's probably just a huge Terps fan, but we can always hope he's jazzed as a Bisnow e-letter fan.
