Madison Square Garden LP, about to be spun off as a separate company from parent Cablevision, is scouting Washington, D.C., locations for possible construction of a 6,000-seat concert hall, city officials confirmed to the Washington Business Journal.

“They are shopping the District … They’re very interested. It’s a question of finding the right spot,” Economic Partnership Executive Director Steve Moore told the paper.

Moore told the Business Journal that MSG has hired local reps from Arent Fox LLP to assist its search, adding that he didn’t believe the concert hall plan is a done deal.

“I think that their own thinking is not that set,” he told the paper. “They want to understand the market some more. They were here looking.”
