We're tired of being construction spectators and giving you just periodic updates since groundbreaking in May '06. We are ready to take the field! In a mere 48 hours, the Nats throw open their new ballpark, in a season opener against the Braves, televised by ESPN. Passing the ESPN test:  Now we know it's for real!


At a BoT sponsored tour Friday, Nats owner Mark Lerner told us ticket demand for Opening Day could have sold the stadium out three times over. He says seating capacity has been set at 41,888, a number you only learn precisely at the last minute.


Ted Lerner, first among co-owners, with son-in-law Bob Tanenbaum. Ted told us everything is set except the weather. It's supposed to be a bit chilly, but he's hoping no rain.


Despite the following pictures, Bisnow does not have a policy to cover events only serving food. It is just the most important of many factors considered.

Yesterday morning we happened by CBRE green guru Sally Wilson and ULI DC Chair Brian Cullen of Keane Enterprises while they ate green eggs and ham (or something like that) at Poste in Hotel Monaco. The two were talking about ULI's big push for the coming year on sustainability through land-use and infrastructure. And, Brian told us, there are probably still a few seats left for ULI's annual Trends conference at the Reagan Building on April 9. By the way, looks like Brian doesn't take chances on restaurants having coffee.


At lunch yesterday we had some friends and sponsors for power lunch at BLT:  from left, LandAmerica's Chris Naughten, Bean Kinney Korman's Jim Korman, Bisnow's Doug Anderson, Buch Construction's Carl Buch, CBRE's Art Santry, Elliott Bisnow (substituting for ski-injured dad), Arent Fox's Richard Newman, Vornado's Brendan Owen, Calkain Companies' Jon Hipp, Hickok Cole's Yolanda Cole, and Arlington Economic Development's Terry Holzheimer. Any of that salad left over? 


When we popped by the Daily Grill on M St. for our second lunch of the day, we bumped into Washington Group Sales' Amanda Tiede, Jen Cosby, Kevin Herndon, and Michelle Fair talking about their trip to Barcelona next week with Kimball Office, a reward for selling so much office furniture. C'mon, aren't you guys going to be eating out enough?


Don't worry, this wasn't lunch #3, but Wednesday night at Bazin's on Church in Vienna. Herman Miller's Lisa Scala, Akridge's Christina Mindrup, Dietze Construction's Ginny Craig, Vornado's Kay Chewning, DBI's Kathryn Ciliberti, Beers & Cutler's Barbara McDuffie, and Office Media Network's Kathleen Turner were out on the town celebrating the gals' March birthdays. Well, at least four of theirs. But they all look the same age—young!


Last week's ribbon cutting for the Mancini Duffy-designed United Communications Group's new 71k SF, 300-person facility in Gaithersburg was a good excuse for a party. (We hear they also party on Arbor Day, the summer solstice, and days that end in "y".) UCG's Gary Conway, MD's Anik Jhaveri, UCG's Randy Levenson, MD's Michael Santilli, Melanie Duhon, and Kristen Streeter, and Rand's Howard Chapman even donned beads for the occasion. The space's theme, "Communication as Architecture," blended media like interactive LCD displays with building elements.
