Or what about all the dozens of railroad suburbs which do have luxury multifamily and retail and density?

So, for example, in Northern NJ (not a complete list)

South Orange
Montclair
Maplewood
Summit
Milburn
Westfield
Cranford
Red Bank
Princeton
Chatham
Morristown
Somerville
Ridgewood
Westwood
Englewood
Rutherford

Which one of these is not 10x better than somewhere like Wheaton, MD?

They are redoing Tyson's. LOL. Tyson's has more office space than Atlanta. Northern VA has more office space than LA. Come on haters!

Again, how do people get to Braddock Metro if they aren't parking in the local lots? You think they fly there? Braddock Place probably has 1,000 parking spaces.
Braddock place does not offer public parking. sorry again. have you heard of walking? that's how people get there. it's easier than flying for most.

It's hilarious they present these districts just because they have high rises. Who cares. They're dull as dishwater.

Btw. some of those images are of two of downtown LA's building called the Rossyln. Oops.
Put some pics up!

Who cares? Tysons is lame. What does office space have to do with a interesting or vibrant place?

There are no old buildings in Rossyln from the 1920s or 1930s. Use your head. It's not rocket science.
