For Claire Blanchard, walking into a new office space is a “breath of fresh air.” That’s exactly what her company, SYSTAAQ Diagnostics, got when it moved into the new Northern Virginia Bioscience Center at Innovation Park. “It offers endless opportunities to grow as a company,” she said. Officials on Tuesday held a grand opening for the facility, which is the first of its kind in Prince William County. Holladay Properties oversaw construction of the $16.5 million, 30,000-square-foot commercial wet lab, which will serve as a space for new and growing life sciences businesses to grow and build off the existing Prince William Science Accelerator. “We have companies, researchers that are accelerating out of that building, and they have a new home across the street,” said Brentsville Supervisor Jeanine Lawson. A wet lab is used for experiments that can involve various types of chemical and potential hazards. The labs are specially designed to avoid spills and contamination. The county established...
    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has been promoting the return of New Year's Day celebrations to Times Square. But with COVID-19's Omicron variant spreading rapidly in the United States, de Blasio is now considering the possibility of canceling that celebration, NYC's Channel 4 is reporting. Channel 4's Jennifer Millman explains, "Almost exactly one month after Mayor Bill de Blasio triumphantly announced tens of thousands of fully vaccinated people could return to Times Square to celebrate New Year's Eve in person this year, the state saw it's highest single-day reporting of new COVID infections. The previous record, set almost one year ago on January 14, crumbled when Gov. Kathy Hochul announced 21,027 new positive cases statewide." That new number of infections, according to Millman is "more than 1000 over the last record." When de Blasio was interviewed on CNN this week, he didn't say that the Times Square celebration was definitely canceled but said he will do so if he determines that it is necessary. "Now we're going to reassess constantly with the new information," the outgoing New York...

    The most emblematic squares in the center of Valencia walk with a determined step towards their projected pedestrian reforms. If this Wednesday the long-awaited redevelopment of the Plaza de la Reina received the green light, which will begin in a few weeks after a tortuous bureaucratic journey marked by the traffic jam derived from the filing of resources, the way has also been paved for the Central Market environment (City of Bruges and Mercat squares). As reported by the Department of Urban Development, no company has appealed the award to Pavasal, so the works in this enclave, with a high heritage value, will start this spring. In this way, both works will coincide in time, although it is true that the pedestrianization project around the Lonja, whose project came from the Generalitat, has been processed more quickly in its administrative route. With these performances, the city center will change radically by pedestrianizing the axis that goes from the Plaza del Ayuntamiento (already returned to pedestrians for the most part through an action of tactical urbanism) towards the Lonja and...

    Bankrupt J.C. Penney plans to permanently shutter 154 stores across the U.S., with going-out-of-business sales set to begin at those locations on June 12. The 118-year-old retailer plans to close a total of 242 locations by the fall. J.C. Penney declared bankruptcy in May. It was one of many brick-and-mortar stores forced to temporarily close locations in April and May as the coronavirus pandemic raced across the U.S. Although the shutdowns pushed the retailer closer to insolvency, the company had been struggling for years with changing consumer tastes and a shift to ecommerce.  J.C. Penney CEO Jill Soltau said the store closures will help it emerge from bankruptcy in a better financial position. "While closing stores is always an extremely difficult decision, our store optimization strategy is vital to ensuring we emerge from both Chapter 11 and the COVID-19 pandemic as a stronger retailer with greater financial flexibility to allow us to continue serving our loyal customers for decades to come," she said in a statement. J.C. Penney, which will continue operating most of its 850 stores, said the locations chosen for closure were...
    New York (CNN Business)JCPenney is permanently closing 154 stores across 20 states this summer as part of its bankruptcy plan. The company, one of the most high-profile retailers to file for bankruptcy protection after being hit hard by the coronavirus, said it expects store closing sales to last around three months, and it will announce additional closures in the coming weeks. JCPenney filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on May 15. The pandemic's hit on sales was the final blow to a 118-year-old company struggling to overcome a mountain of debt. When the pandemic hit, JCPenney, like many other businesses, was forced to temporarily close stores. The company said that as of Thursday it had reopened nearly 500 stores as coronavirus restrictions began to ease in some states. "While closing stores is always an extremely difficult decision, our store optimization strategy is vital to ensuring we emerge from both Chapter 11 and the COVID-19 pandemic as a stronger retailer with greater financial flexibility to allow us to continue serving our loyal customers for decades to come," said Jill Soltau, chief executive...
