CoStar May Sell New HQ — “Andy Florance, the real estate data giant’s CEO, told analysts Tuesday that CoStar is likely to sell Rosslyn’s Central Place tower, but to remain there — like it did with its D.C. headquarters 13 years ago. CoStar acquired the 550,000-square-foot office portion of Central Place, 1201 Wilson Blvd., from JBG Smith Properties last week for roughly $325 million.” [Washington Business Journal]

Stolen Car Bust on Video — From Dave Statter: “This was the scene at S. 23rd St. & Crystal Dr. at 8:15 p.m. It appears @ArlingtonVaPD officers were sitting on a parked stolen car and moved in with guns drawn after four people got into the vehicle. While some bystanders ran to get out of the way others got closer to get video.” [Twitter]

Employment Rises in Arlington — “Arlington County saw a year-over-year increase in inside-the-jurisdiction employment in new federal data, but fell slightly short of the federal rate of growth. With 178,800 people employed in Arlington (no matter where they live) and 627,700 in Fairfax County, the year-over-year growth rates were 1.4 percent and 0.4 percent, respectively.” [Gazette Leader]

Town Hall with APS Superintendent — “Join the [Jewish Community Relations Council] of Greater Washington as we welcome Arlington Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Francisco Duran and provide a forum for members of the Jewish community to share our priorities and concerns.” [JCRC]

Local Woman’s Money Diary — “Today: an associate product manager [from Arlington] who makes $105,000 per year and spends some of her money this week on pole dancing.” [Refinery 29]

Courthouse Building in Arrears — “A joint venture led by real estate giant AEW was delinquent in January on an $81 million securitized loan tied to an Arlington office building that once housed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and Verizon’s headquarters. RP MRP Courthouse LLC owns the 11-story, roughly 381,000-square-foot office, built in 1983 and renovated in 2019, at 1310 N. Courthouse Road.” [Washington Business Journal]

Local Country Band Remembered — “The name was meant as a joke. It was 1972, and musicians Joe Triplett and Happy Acosta were living in a shabby house on Rolfe Street, just north of Rosslyn. Veterans of the D.C. rock ’n’ roll scene, they wanted to play more country music, so they cast about for a band name that fit. ‘We can’t call ourselves ‘Happy and Joe,’’ Triplett recalls thinking, ‘so Happy said, ‘We’ll call the band The Rosslyn Mountain Boys.’'” [Arlington Magazine]

DCist Shuts Down, Again — “Washington’s NPR affiliate, WAMU, plans to shut down local news site DCist and lay off 15 staffers as part of a strategic shift focused on audio.” [Axios, Washingtonian]

It’s Monday — Expect sunny skies with a high near 63 degrees and a southwest wind between 3 and 7 mph during the day. The evening will be partly cloudy, with temperatures dropping to around 46 degrees. []
