i think it could grow to that point. the renderings look nice!!kay:
The Baltimore/Washington area is fast becoming the mecca of harbors. lolI know there are plans to develop the waterfront from Navy Yard all the way to Maine Avenue Fish Market. It will truly be awesome IF it all comes to fruition.
How long will it all take is the question. National Harbor took some 20 years just to get started.
Artists renderings sure look great, but I'll believe it when I see it.
That first rendering reminds me of the National Harbor for some reason.These renderings seem to have taken more from the Inner Harbor than Harbor East, in my opinion. The first rendering, in particular, with the tall ship is reminiscent of Baltimore's Harbor.

They also want to get the most sq ft out of the lot because property values in DC are sky-high (not only because of the height limit, but because it's DC). However, DC will start to see more curvilinear buildings soon, I'm sure. It's only a matter of time.They can't build high, like in Baltimore, so to get the most sq ft out of the site, they build the biggest rectangle possible.
The area around there is perfectly fine. It's not particularly aesthetically pleasing, but there's nothing unsafe or unsound about it. It's just like the area around where the new stadium is. There was very little crime in that area of Southeast and Southwest, but it just wasn't pretty.I like it ! I do ! . Isn't the area around it a little, how can I put it, not so nice ?
