• Check out NPR’s neat interactive feature on 52 O Street Studio, the 94-year-old former warehouse that's now home to more than 20 artists. There’s video, slideshows, and a brief history of the space.  [NPR via Bloomingdale]

• A former bank on 14th and F streets will undergo extensive renovation before reopening as the Armenian Genocide Museum of America. [DCMUD]

• What does $1,399,999 buy you? A view of a parking garage and Reston’s “fake downtown,” according to Restonian. [Restonian] P.S. Is anyone else dying to have Restonian featured on Blogger Beat? Leaman, get on it!

• Looking at renderings of the University of Maryland’s student housing project (read: luxury apartments), we can’t help but feel a little jealous. [Metrocentric]

• Plans for a three-story office building in downtown Fairfax have been approved. The new building will sit on more than an acre at the corner of University Drive and Layton Hall Road. [WBJ]
