Rhode Island Avenue-Brentwood Metro Redevelopment Update

DCmud has an update on the proposed development coming to the Rhode Island Avenue-Brentwood Metro. If we're lucky, it will block the views of the Rhode Island Place (or RIP - my household's pet name) and perhaps even spur the management to take better care of it. Better yet, I hope it creates a clamor in the Ward 5 community to demand urban-style, pedestrian-friendly, dense development rather than suburban-style strip malls floating in seas of asphalt.

  1. Ooh...imagine if RI NE could actually LOOK like that over time! Right now it's not a place I feel comfortable walking around in at any time of day.
