  • BLOCKBUSTER SELLS LAND -- DREAM PARK "OFFICIALLY DEAD"

         Blockbuster decided on Friday to sell 1,600 acres it had
    planned for a mega-sports and entertainment center.  Blockbuster
    Entertainment is also asking for the legislature to "dissolve the
    special district it created for the mammoth project once
    envisioned" by Chair Wayne Huizenga.  With the decision to sell
    the land, the idea of Blockbuster Park "is now officially dead"
    (Cindy Goodman, MIAMI HERALD, 3/25).

  • WILL "GREAT WALL OF CHINATOWN" SCUTTLE POLLIN'S PLANS?

         The plans for a new arena in downtown DC has created
    controversy among local Chinatown merchants.  The arena proposal
    calls for a block-long 80-foot high blank wall along H Street,
    NW.  Alfred Liu, a member of the Mayor's Task Force on Arena
    Planning and Design, said the design "seems quite cold and cruel
    to Chinatown.  It's really insulting."  Liu said there are some
    major flaws in the arena's new design, including a lack of
    entrances and exits on the Chinatown side of the arena, the large
    amount of retail space would compete with Chinatown food and
    retail businesses, and a lack of on-site parking (Thomas Hall,
    WASHINGTON BUSINESS JOURNAL, 3/30 issue).
