Development Plan for Papillon Cycles Building — “The Christopher Companies has filed plans with Arlington County for a new 88-unit residential development at 2801 Columbia Pike, currently home to a two-level commercial building. The new project, designed by Devereaux Architects and Planners, would rise 7 stories, have two levels of underground parking and 5,800 square feet of retail space.” [UrbanTurf]

Another Gun Caught at DCA — “Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) prevented a Prince George’s County, Md., man from carrying his loaded handgun onto a flight this morning, Wednesday, Sept. 21. It was the 20th gun detected by TSA officers at the airport so far this year. The 9mm gun was loaded with seven bullets, including one in the chamber.” [Press Release]

New Retail and Restaurant at Airport — “Local burger joint Lucky Buns and Black-owned bookstore MahoganyBooks are among the businesses that will open new locations at National Airport, according to the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. Lucky Buns, which is from Chef Alex McCoy and known for its burgers and chicken sandwiches influenced by British and Southeast Asian cuisine, will be located by the B gates.” [DCist]

Ukrainian Kids Visit USS Arlington — “Twenty-seven children of Ukrainian soldiers visited the U.S. Navy San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock ship USS Arlington (LPD 24) during a port of call to Riga, Latvia, in late August. The National Defense Patriotic Foundation (NAMEJS), a charitable organization run by retired Latvian Army Lt. Gen. Raimonds Graube, hosted the Ukrainian children for a week-long summer camp at the time of USS Arlington’s arrival.” [Sun Gazette]

N. Va. Job Growth Trails Rest of State — “Northern Virginia accounts for nearly 38 percent of the jobs in the commonwealth but only was responsible for 30 percent of the statewide rebound in employment over the past year, according to new data. From August 2021 to August 2022, the local region picked up a net 35,700 new jobs to stand at 1,533,700, according to figures reported Sept. 16 by the Virginia Employment Commission.” [Sun Gazette]

Metro Track Issues Revealed — “Wheel problems similar to those that sidelined about half of Metro’s rail car fleet also occurred years earlier on older cars, partly stemming from a track issue Metro never addressed, the transit system’s regulatory agency said Tuesday while citing a years-old report that recently came to light.” [Washington Post]

It’s Thursday — Partly cloudy throughout the day, plus a chance of showers and storms, getting windy and cooler in the afternoon and evening. High of 78 and low of 61. Sunrise at 6:58 am and sunset at 7:07 pm. []
