Fight Between Frontier, Sinclair Hurts Consumers, Tennis Channel, Spot TV Advertisers

Advertisers and consumers suffer as a result of the impasse on transmission fee carriage negotiations by Sinclair Broadcast Group’s Tennis Channel, plus KOMO-TV (ABC Seattle) and KATU-TV (ABC
Portland, OR) with Frontier Cable.  

Barry Faber, Sinclair’s EVP, Distribution Network Relations stated, “We regret our efforts are unlikely to result in us reaching an
agreement with Frontier prior to January 1st.”  He further suggested: “There are other video distributor options available.”

However, switching MVPDs can be a long
process for cable/satellite subscribers and condo associations; communities are generally on a long-term contract. No worries, the Australian Open only starts Monday and the French Open May 28 with
many tremendous events in between!  

Faber also confirmed: “Other tennis programming (NOT the same as what is on Tennis Channel) is available independent of any such MVPD by
subscribing to Tennis Channel Plus. So OTT is not a proper complete alternative.

York Village residents strongly oppose condo proposal – News …

YORK —Before a packed meeting room of about 50 people last Thursday night, the Planning Board received its first look at an application for a condominium complex on land belonging to the family of the late Mary Davis on York Street.

During the public hearing, residents expressed concern about the proposal on many levels, most of them worried about safety issues on York Street. Water runoff onto neighboring properties and project density were among additional concerns. These views were buttressed by a letter submitted to the board and signed by 50 townspeople.

In addition, several people wondered whether the town would once again consider purchasing the 110-acre parcel, which voters in a nonbinding question rejected in 2014.

At issue is a proposal to build a 113-unit condo complex on 106 acres that spread behind York Street and over to Donica Road. Initial

Inside The Westlight Condos, Where People Camped Out To Buy

When the first 20 contracts were released last month for EastBanc‘s new Westlight condo building, a line of 50 people formed outside the sales office, with more than a dozen waiting overnight. For one of the most expensive new multifamily projects in DC, at $1,200/SF, even the sales team was surprised, so we took a look inside to see what all the excitement is about.

Westlight Condos

The building, designed by architect Enrique Norten, stands out in its West End neighborhood with a cantilevered glass façade. It is split into two separate towers, one with 71 for-sale condo units and another with 93 rental apartments. 

The first phase of condo contracts, the original 20, plus three backups, were signed within a week of the release. Sales director Mei-Mei Venners tells Bisnow they tried to avoid the bidding war that happened with the opening of Eastbanc’s
