The New Stadium Condo-Garage


Illustration from Jacqueline Dupree http://www.jdland.com/dc/stadium.cfm

Note the ghost outlines of the new development to surround this stadium. South Capitol Street becomes more like K Street NW.

Note the space between the condo-garage buildings to see that exactly the western half of this complex directly conflicts with U.S. National Capital Planning Commission's (NCPC) "Extending the Legacy" South Capitol Mall.

What a waste of an opportunity, of time, of money, and of the NCPC's credibility.

Only the eastern of these two condo garages is likely to survive the post epiphany demolition of this misplaced complex.

The convention center was only 20 or so years old, and that was not (AFAIK) a rush job for the concrete curing during a rainy season just to get the thing built in time for ?
