The Continuing Desecration of the Extending the Legacy Plan
Future -- post 2012 -- Eminent Domain for Public Use?
Land to be cleared for condo project -- 1345 South Capitol Street SW -- which itself conflicts with U.S. National Capital Planning Commission's South Capitol Mall seen on the cover of Extending the Legacy: Planning America's Capital for the 21st Century, and hence will require eminent domain for public use.
Anyone moving into this structure should know of this conflict, and thus understand that it will need to be removed, via eminent domain for public use.
Of course this could be avoided simply if the project were shifted a few hundred feet west.
Then it would ultimately be worth more money because it would be fronting the grand monumental promenade of the South Capitol Mall.
As of this writing, that could still be done.
