The International Spy Museum announced yesterday that it has withdrawn its plans to redevelop the Carnegie Library in Mount Vernon Square for its new location, after the Historic Preservation Review Board declined the latest design. It was the second such design submission from Events DC, which is partnering with the Spy Museum (currently located in Penn Quarter) to find a new space, and Events DC CEO Greg O'Dell says any changes to the latest drawings "would have compromised our essential program... or been too cost prohibitive." So where do YOU think the best spot for the new Spy Museum would be? Let Chris Baird know and we'll publish the best answers this week.
