The Week in Real Estate

Every Friday, we round up the week's real-estate news and gossip.

• DC Metrocentric takes a look inside the townhouses that are part of the Vista on Courthouse development. The project also includes duplexes and condos. [DCMetrocentric]

• It’s not the narrowest house in the country—that would be Jack Sammis’s Alexandria home—but this Clarendon home is fascinating. Its $1 million price tag, though, less so. [DCMetrocentic]

• Alexandria’s City Council wants a new Metro stop in Potomac Yard and has set up a planning group to evaluate the cost and logistics. [DCmud] This better not happen before DC gets its Drunk Line, is all we’re saying.

• Residents are lobbying to turn an unkempt city-owned parcel of land on 10th Street between L and M streets into a  neighborhood park. [RenewShaw]• The story with the proposed plans to redevelop the closed McMillan Sand Filtration Plant just got juicier, with chatter about conspiracy theories. This is better than Gossip Girl! [Housing Complex]

• There were fewer foreclosures in the city in January than in December. And, in general, Washington is doing better in terms of its foreclosure rate than Maryland and Virginia. [WBJ]

• The Reston Association is asking for more money for its new headquarters. [Restonian]
