The complex is currently known as the “Bucking Horse Urban Estate / Johnson Farm Innovation Campus.  Really.  The developers have grand plans for the Jessup Farm – Johnson Farm: it’s all about healthy and sustainable living, with produce/herb gardens, farm to fork restaurant, yoga studio, bike shop, wine cave, cheesery, bakery . . . .  Meanwhile (two years and waiting), the buildings are still deteriorating, but hey, the Jessup Farm Artisan Village has a concrete parking lot!  And, the Bucking Horse townhouses are going up at a pretty rapid clip:

Craftsman Bungalow townhomes!

Oh look, Craftsman Bungalow townhouses!

. . . .  with fake side-swing garage doors!
