So one year later, I’m visiting the Tidal Basin and the renovation on the new side of L’Enfant Plaza Mall is in full bloom. A food court connecting to the old (new vacant) mall with a handful of new retailers, this I’m sure is a treat for those who work around here. Last time I was here, I was concerned the red and white would look too drastic, but it looks rather nice and sophisticated with these chains here. Now I wonder what they’ll do with the old mall side.
