Welcome to August, when nothing happens—no ANC meetings, no Zoning Commission, no City Council, even Greater Greater Washington is taking a vacation! Well, almost nothing. Here are a few vaguely real estate-related events of note. I’ll add if I come upon more.

ALL DAY – Design DC Conference in the Convention Center. Through Thursday.

6:30 p.m. – Metro Riders Advisory Council meeting. 600 5th Street NW.
