More on PEPCO

Rachel Baye of the Examiner updates the previously reported news that PEPCO has purchased the 5220 Wisconsin Avenue lot. Of interest are the comments in the article, particularly this one:

A high-rise would have been too large, creating an "oppressiveness to the walkability of the area with the tall buildings looming over the sidewalk," said Marilyn Simon, a board member of the Friendship Neighborhood Association.

So which is better, a 5-7 story building with street front retail, or a substation?

Ms. Simon does not know what she's talking about. The neighborhoods of Ward 3 are doomed to more of the same as long as people with her mindset have the ability to sway the direction of city growth.
