Ahh, excuse me, doesn't the USPS first have to agree to dispose of the property?

An August 2012 memo on the matter says: "It was always expected that due to the nature of the federal post office system there would be significant hurdles."

Not knocking your reporting.... just the city's presentation of this as a fait accompli. They have a habit of making overly rosy asusmptions about how other jurisidictions will go along with their plans (see, for example, Arlington and the trolley; DC and the 15-foot pier; NPS and the Potomac Yard Metro station).
