This just in from Bisnow on Business: Chuck Brown is a Visionary.

On May 6, Group Goetz Architects is hosting a “Visions of Washington” event at the House of Sweden to honor “Visionaries [That’s With a Capital V, Dammit] who’ve given Washington the spirit, vibrancy, and diversity that make it one of the most exciting cities in the world.”

Your “Visionaries of the Year” are the Lerner Family for “applying their energy, money, and name to bringing DC literally into the Major Leagues.” (I guess that makes the District’s taxpaying public visionaries in their own special way.)

Then you’ve got your usual developers and lawyers: Doug Jemal, Forest City’s Deborah Ratner Salzberg, Arent Fox’s Joe Fries, Arnold & Porter’s Steve Porter, the Carlyle Group’s Hayden Jones, among others.

And…the godfather of go-go. Hell yeah.
