I haven't been keeping up on this debate as much as I should, but there's been a bit of grumbling on the Brookland listserv about what should be done with site. The DC Preservation League continues to list McMillan as one of DC's most endangered places (page 4) and "...welcomes limited development on this site, and encourages NCRC to work with preservationists, the city's Office of Planning and Historic Preservation Office, and the interested community groups for a mixed use development that preserves the historic character of this site as well as open space for the community." Now that NCRC owns the site, I imagine community input is critical at this stage. If you are able to attend, please leave your observations/opinions in the comments.
