I think this is pretty awesome for those families in NE DC and west PG County.

Fort Totten is getting a lot of attention from developers this year, and now an older project is picking up where it left off, albeit with a very eye-catching detail.

The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation is seeking zoning review for the mixed-use Art Place Fort Totten. The development team has filed applications for a second-stage planned unit development (PUD) review and a modification of the first-stage PUD first approved in December 2009. This was first reported by Next Stop...Riggs Park.

This looks exciting. I hope there will be ample parking for us car folks. I know a lot of DC folks now bike, bird, etc., but some of us still drive.

Parking often takes up and wastes land that can be used for more density. So I hope there is very little parking.

I'm never opposed to underground parking however that does not break up the street grid, store fronts, or vibrancy.

For example, The Wharf has underground parking completely hidden from the majority of eyes.

There will be on-site parking, and additional nearby public parking (the Fort Totten station, for instance).

The big downside to underground parking is that it is expensive to build. That either means that drivers will have to pay a lot of money to park there, or rents will have to be higher to make up the cost.

Sure, I was talking about parking above ground or in a garage. Anything underground is fine. They can build parking to the core of the earth if they want, just leave the land area for more density.

Looks nice...i cant lie.....

Im surprised theyre building something like that there that area isnt impoverished and downtrodden....just highly residential......

youre gonna need a parking garage and thats probably what theyre gonna build. its right off South Dakota ave, a major thoroughfare. Drivers will see it and be like "ooh whats this??" and then theyll have to find a parking spot. might as well build a parking garage to accommodate car traffic that passes by....

DC has a goal to lower car traffic and increase the use of public transit and other types of transportation. Building lots of parking is a step in the wrong direction in my opinion.

But as long as the parking is underground and doesn't hinder adding density to the area I don't mind.
