From the Editor

R

osslyn is catching everyone’s attention, from the Arlington County Board, which on June 14 approved a review of the Rosslyn Sector Plan, to the blogosphere, which is comparing Rosslyn’s Freedom Park to New York City’s Highline Park. So in this issue we decided to take a closer look at the sights and sounds of the place everyone is talking about – starting with construction. One of the amazing elements of construction sites is the way they manage to change the scenery every single day of the week. It’s the reason passersby stand at attention on a sidewalk to stare at the work of a crane operator, or gaze through a “window” in the construction fence – just to watch the wonder of it all. On pages 10 and 11, we’ve tried to capture a few of the sights you’ll never again see once Rosslyn’s new buildings rise to completion. On a day-to-day basis, pedestrians don’t necessarily stand at rapt attention at the sight of a row of colorful banners, or flower-filled planters, or lushly landscaped traffic medians. But these elements, along with artistic bike racks, elegant metal fencing for the trees, or moveable Adirondack chairs, are the stuff of the public realm – the details that make us feel we’re in the right place. Rosslyn Renaissance and the Rosslyn BID pay attention to these “little details” all year long, so we turn an eye to them on pages 12 and 13. Music in the air also makes us feel we’re in a good place. Our summer-long concerts culminate with the 21st Annual Jazz Festival in Gateway Park on Saturday, September 10, featuring Grammy winner Dee Dee Bridgewater. While everyone else is enjoying the summer, Marine Corps Marathon race director Rick Nealis, whom we profile in Back Story on page 28, is hard at work, also planning a transformation of Rosslyn’s streets. On the last Sunday in October, tens of thousands of runners and spectators turn the intersection of Wilson and Lynn into a giant street party. We’re proud to be part of the ninth largest marathon in the world! All this energy and excitement is beautifully captured in our video, “The Colors of Rosslyn.” We are pleased to announce it was named 2011’s Best Real Estate Communication by the International Academy of the Visual Arts. To get a copy of the DVD to show potential tenants, residents, and visitors, just call the office. Have a great summer!

9th Annual Meeting At Hyatt Arlington: l-r: Tony Womack, Tishman Speyer; David Briggs, Holland and Knight; Richard Sarles, WMATA; Wayne Wentz, Arlington County Transportation

The featured guest speaker at the Rosslyn BID’s 9th annual meeting was Richard Sarles, recently appointed general manager and CEO of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority. He discussed the ongoing challenges Metro faces in rebuilding a 35-year-old transit system. As part of the largest capital program since Metro’s founding, Sarles reported that Metro is investing $5 billion over the next six years in over 100 separate projects designed to improve safety,

customer service, and reliability. The Hyatt Arlington hosted the annual meeting, which was held May 12 and drew 80 members of Rosslyn’s business and residential community. Elections were held for ten members to serve on the Rosslyn BID board of directors in the upcoming fiscal year. The new slate reflects the diverse experience and talent of Rosslyn’s top business leaders. www.rosslynva.org/annual-meeting

DEe Dee Bridgewater

Widely praised as the

region’s standout jazz festival, this much-anticipated event now draws an audience of nearly 5,000 aficionados at Rosslyn’s scenic Gateway Park. 6

SUMMER 2011

The 21st Annual Rosslyn Jazz Festival The Rosslyn Jazz Festival turns 21 this September, and marks its coming-of-age with a stellar lineup. Held Saturday, September 10, 2011 from 1:00 to 7:00 pm, this popular free festival is sponsored by the Rosslyn BID and Rosslyn Renaissance, and co-presented with Arlington County Cultural Affairs. This year’s headliner, Dee Dee Bridgewater, is a multiple Grammy winner and Tony-winning vocalist. Other featured performers include legendary New Orleans pianist and vocalist Henry Butler, and the young saxophone phenomenon Grace Kelly. RosslynVA.org

Grammy Winner Dee Dee Bridgewater Dee Dee Bridgewater has a multifaceted career that spans four decades. She is a three-time Grammy winner and is in the top tier of today’s jazz vocalists, putting her own unique spin on standards as well as taking intrepid leaps of faith in re-envisioning jazz classics. For her latest recording, Eleanora Fagan (1915-1959): To Billie with Love from Dee Dee, Bridgewater honors the legendary Billie Holiday. Bridgewater made her New York debut in 1970 as the lead vocalist for Thad Jones and Mel Lewis, and performing and recording with Sonny Rollins, Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon, Max Roach and Roland Kirk. Her performance in the original Broadway production of The Wiz garnered her a Tony Award. Dee Dee’s rendition of “If You Believe” is praised by Nick Ashford of Ashford and Simpson as a song that “personified a generation and gave us all hope.” Piano Wizard Henry Butler Eight-time W.C. Handy “Best Blues Instrumentalist in Piano” award nominee Henry Butler knows no limitations. Playing piano since age six, Butler combines the percussive jazz piano playing of McCoy Tyner and the New Orleans style playing of Professor Longhair. Although blinded by glaucoma since birth, Butler also is a world-class photographer who has exhibited nationally. An accomplished clinician, Butler started a residential jazz camp at Missouri State School for the Blind and a program for visually impaired students at RosslynVA.org

Locals Al Williams and Juanita Williams Washington, D.C.’s own Al Williams Quartet with guest vocalist Juanita Williams will open the festival. A native of Philadelphia, Al Williams is a saxophone and flute maestro. He has toured and recorded five albums with the late Cuban percussionist Mongo Santamaria, appearing on the Grammy-winning album Amanacer. An original member of Stanley Clarke’s School Days Band, they recorded three groundbreaking albums, Modern Man, I Want to Play for You, and Stanley Clarke Live, ‘76, ‘77. Williams has three recordings as leader: Never Too Late (1997), See for Yourself (2003), and Heart Song (2008). Grammy-nominated for her debut CD, Juanita Williams wowed audiences worldwide in her 15-year tenure with the U.S. Air Force’s Airman of Note. Her performing credits include the Montreaux Jazz Festival, The White House, Blues Alley, and The House of Blues. www.rosslynva.org/play/calendar

Saxophonist Grace Kelly Eighteen-year-old Grace Kelly was named the youngest “Alto Saxophonist Rising Star” ever in the 57th Annual Downbeat Magazine Critics Poll. Kelly, who performed at the 2008 Mary Lou Williams Women in Jazz Festival, received an ASCAP Young Jazz Composers Award – her third in the past four years. “Grace Kelly plays with intelligence, wit and feeling,” says trumpeter and Jazz at Lincoln Center Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis. “She has a great amount of natural ability and the ability to adapt that is the hallmark of a first-class jazz musician.” So impressed was Marsalis with Kelly’s guest appearance at Lincoln Center in November 2008, he invited her to appear at the Kennedy Center for a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day/Presidential Inauguration Eve concert the following January.

HENRY BUTLER

Food and Hospitality The event is hosted by on-air personalities from our exceptional local jazz radio station, WPFW 89.3 FM, which will broadcast portions of the event live. As always, the Rosslyn Jazz Festival also will offer a range of mouth-watering food from Big Daddy’s BBQ, Eastern Star Catering, Sweetheart Festival Foods and others. Purple-shirted Rosslyn ambassadors will offer hospitality and keep the park grounds clean and welcoming.

Realm The Public What IS the public realm? It’s the streets, sidewalks, plazas, corners and parks of a city. It’s also the special elements that ensure an enjoyable experience for the pedestrian in these spaces – and makes them want to come back. 14

“A good public realm puts the pedestrian first,” says Lucia deCordre, urban design director for Rosslyn Renaissance and the Rosslyn BID. “In our work, we think about the quality, comfort, and aesthetics of the street. Is the area clean and pleasant to be in, comfortable to walk through? Is there a choice of places to sit, relax and people watch? Is there food, information and shopping available?” The ABC’s of pedestrian improvements The common wisdom for downtown organizations is to RosslynVA.org

“start with the petunias.” In the Rosslyn BID’s case, major landscaping projects have transformed the traffic islands, now filled with crape myrtles and knock-out roses, and terra cotta planters filled with seasonal blooms that liven up the sidewalks. Street trees are neatly fenced and surrounded with decorative grasses. Other BID contributions include custom bicycle racks mimicking Artisphere’s logo. Colorful banners on every light pole. Convenient “You Are Here” maps and wayfinding signs.“Big Belly” recycling and trash receptacles. The smiling Ambassador team, dressed in trademark purple. Urban Oases Rosslyn Renaissance (RR) works through its Urban Design Committee to ensure that all of Rosslyn’s redevelopment projects create great public spaces, large and small. Some examples: • The Turnberry Tower water wall; RosslynVA.org

• Café Assorti’s outdoor seating; • The tiny plaza adjacent to Red Hot and Blue; • Domaso’s fourth floor public terrace overlooking Key Bridge; and • Public art projects such as “Liquid Pixels,” “Cupid’s Garden” and the upcoming “Corridors of Light” project.

Banners

Temporary Fixes During construction, RR helps place temporary public art and planters, to add color and interest. CentralSpace, with its moveable tables and Adirondack chairs, has been a great success, which could be replicated on other sites. “Rosslyn is a ‘work in progress,’” says deCordre. “Our goal is to make everyone happy to be in Rosslyn – both during and after construction!” www.rosslynva.org/who-we-are SUMMER 2011

This summer, the BID has hired six outstanding Hospitality Ambassadors to assist with events. These ambitious young men and women are residents of Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia, and the BID is pleased to welcome them as members of the team. Summer jobs help these young adults pay for college tuition, utility bills and child care, while they gain great work experience. “I wanted to learn better customer service skills that I can use when I deal with the clients I serve as a graphic designer,” says Robin Long, a first year student at the Art Institute of Washington. Esther Ahn, a rising sophomore at Virginia Tech says, “I am studying Hospitality and Tourism Management at VA Tech, and I wanted a job experience to prepare for my future.”

“Rooms” Lectures Wind Up RR’s 20th Anniversary

Save the Date

T

The 20th season of the popular “Rooms with a View” lecture series began with an open rehearsal of Washington Shakespeare Company’s production of “Tennessee Continuum” at Artisphere’s Spectrum Theatre on April 21. Washington Shakespeare Company (WSC), the award-winning theater-inresidence at Artisphere, has been lauded for producing two one-act plays by Tennessee Williams that are rarely seen. The “Rooms” audience was treated to a preview of The Gnädiges Fräulein, the show The Washington Post called “The best comedy in town right now...so riotously preposterous, mean-spirited and stuffed with florid language that you’d think it was a Christopher Durang parody of Williams.” The open rehearsal was followed by a discussion with the cast, Director Jay Hardee and WSC Artistic Director Christopher Henley, providing a behindthe-scenes peek at the creative process. The WSC program was followed on May 19 with a lively discussion with two of Washington’s top political journalists, POLITICO’s Jonathan Allen and Julie

Putting Rosslyn on the Map Three Civil War Forts This year marks the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War, an event that dramatically transformed Rosslyn. The “Arlington Line,” a series of 33 earthen forts, cuts through the neighborhood. With ten mounted guns, Fort Corcoran was built at the highest point, to protect the Potomac River and the bridges leading into Washington and Georgetown. Fort Corcoran was a major defensive site, supported by two smaller forts. Fort Bennett had five guns and Fort Haggerty

Fort Haggerty Plaque www.hmdb.org

had four. Soldiers dug major earthworks and clear-cut trees to build the forts. Historic plaques now mark these sites. The Fort Corcoran plaque can be found at Key Blvd. and North Ode St., near the Atrium condominium. The Fort Bennett plaque is located in the Palisades residential area at 22nd St. N., between N. Pierce and N. Queen Sts. Fort Haggerty’s plaque can be seen on a traffic island near Artisphere at Wilson Blvd. and N. Arlington Ridge Rd. SUMMER 2011

Rick Nealis

BackStory by Holly Bass

Oprah’s Run Nealis joined the MCM team in 1993 and scored a major coup out of the gate. He knew that Oprah Winfrey was planning to run the Chicago Marathon. The media mogul was turning 40 and flaunting a newly fit bod, but also enduring a highly-publicized row with the beef industry. He persuaded her that because of physical threats and extreme media attention, the Marines were best-equipped to keep her safe and secure. The bold move worked: Oprah ran in the 1994 Marine Corps Marathon with Bib Number 40. “It was raining and cold—the hardest possible conditions,” Nealis remembers. But he and his team kept the paparazzi away for the four-and-half hours and in so doing brought new life to the moniker “The People’s Marathon.” The next year, Nealis retired from the military to do a stint in private security, but returned in 1996 as the first civilian to hold the position of MCM race director. 30

IN ANY CITY, THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE. CENTRAL PLACE.

Marathon Man The Course After 9/11 Security had always been an issue, but it really took priority after the country was hit by the September 11 attacks. “9/11 changed the way the Marine Corps Marathon conducted the race. It changed how we embraced the community,” Nealis says. “After the Pentagon was hit, we led the spirit of hey, let’s get back to normalcy.” In those days, the race started at Highway 110 for five miles. Rosslyn was the midway mark, so half of the highway had to be reserved for runners making the return trip while others were still leaving the gate. But in 2002, the Pentagon decided it was no longer safe to have runners go around the famous landmark. “The problem really became an opportunity,” says Nealis. Now for the finish, “we run towards Rosslyn using all six lanes of the highway. We used to have 14,000 or 15,000 runners. Now we have 30,000 registering for the race. Rosslyn helped re-shape the Marathon and take it to the next level.” Indeed, the Marine Corps Marathon is now ranked fifth in the country and ninth largest in the world, with runners coming from over 50 different countries. Rosslyn’s Finish Festival Once the race course issue was resolved, Rosslyn business leaders and

The Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) again cuts a course through Rosslyn, filling the streets with panting runners and thousands of spectators this October 30. During the Marathon’s 36-year-history, one man has been responsible for the success of half of those races: Rick Nealis. A retired Marine and five-time marathoner, Nealis knows the stamina it takes to see a major event from start to finish. With his boyish grin, boundless energy and keen organizational skills, he is highly respected in his field. In 2010, he received the prestigious MarathonFoto/ Road Race Management Race Director of the Year award. Spanning state lines and involving high-security federal landmarks, the MCM requires an unparalleled level of collaboration and logistical planning. “We have to work with eight different law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and NCIS, as well as nine secondary agencies in Virginia and D.C. Our operations plan is a military plan. We are planning and rehearsing right up until October,” Nealis explains. “In this day of social media, we know right away if we ran out of shirts, if the bananas were green and not yellow, if the music was too loud. The very next day we’re thinking about how can we do things better. We don’t rest on our laurels.”

location. Directly over the Rosslyn Metro station and offering impressive design, advanced features and outstanding services,

County officials lobbied to create a unique experience for spectators at the finish line. “The seed was planted by the Rosslyn BID to brand it as our Finish Festival, so they raised the bar. It put us on the same level as Chicago and New York,” Nealis says. “There’s a lot more love in the air. Now Crystal City and Washington, D.C. want to be more involved since Rosslyn became a partner.” Nealis has gotten love from more than just local governments. In 2007, he met his wife, Jo Ann, at a Marathon event where he was speaking.

Central Place commands attention as it confers advantages.

The Dream Business For a city kid from South Philadelphia, who played street ball, Nealis has come a long way. “We’re in the dream business,” Nealis says. “I love that we get to help somebody have an experience they’ll remember for a lifetime.” That passion and optimism extends to the Rosslyn community. “For 28 years our logo had Washington, D.C. on the bottom. I was told that logos are untouchable, but I pushed for a whole new logo,” says Nealis. “We put Semper Fidelis at the bottom, the Marine motto. We wanted to say that we would always be faithful to the runners and we would also be faithful to Rosslyn.”
