On the Blogs: Greater Greater Washington
Two great postings today at Greater Greater Washington… one on the plans for the Whitman-Walker property on 14th Street NW between S and Swann NW… and the other on DDOT’s traffic flow plans for 15th Street NW (Borderstan postings here and here).
- “Revised Whitman-Walker plans cruising toward approval” (with great artist renderings of the planned building). “After making a few revisions in response to neighbor and historic preservation concerns, the proposed residential development with ground-floor retail on 14th Street between S and Swann is solidly on track for approval. The project retains the historically contributing, former Whitman-Walker Clinic building at the corner of 14th and S, and replaces the other one-story structures on the block.” Read posting.
- “Breakfast links: Good news for our streets.” A review of the D.C. Department of Transportation’s plans to add bike lanes to 15th Street NW north of Massachusetts Avenue. “DDOT plans contraflow lane on 15th: After numerous public meetings and much listening, DDOT has decided to implement “Alternative 5” on 15th Street between Massachusetts and New Hampshire Avenues. (WashCycle) This alternative adds a standard northbound bicycle lane and a southbound contraflow lane between the parked cars and the sidewalk. Here’s our analysis of this option.”
