It appears that the 42 new Townhomes known as the Fort Lincoln Drive Banneker site is now being marketed as ‘Cityscape at Dakota Crossing’ and promises sweeping city views according to The Concordia Group’s website. I don’t mind the name, however, it does bring to question the neighborhood naming structure and if we are in fact becoming two separate neighborhoods. Often times when describing the neighborhood to friends and colleagues the name Fort Lincoln often results in blank stares. They all know exactly where Dakota Crossing is or more specifically the Townhomes at Costco. Dakota Crossing, Fort Lincoln’s newest retail and residential community, consist of The Dakota Crossing Town Homes (209 homes), The Villages at Dakota Crossing Townhomes and Condos( 334 homes) The Shops at Dakota Crossing (430,000SF Retail), the soon to be Cityscape at Dakota Crossing Town Homes ( 42 Homes), and potentially 300 new Apartments and 50 new Condos that could bear the Dakota Crossing Suffix. This could result in over 1,000 new residents which would account for about half of the population of Fort Lincoln. Fort Lincoln New Town which consists primarily of senior rental towers, Washington Overlook Apartments @Fort Lincoln and condos which typically carry the Fort Lincoln Suffix. Typically the homes and residents are older in the ‘New Town’ section of Fort Lincoln however, their relevance are just as important to the fabric of the neighborhood. However, at the current rate and scale of new developments carrying the Dakota Crossing Suffix I believe that overtime Dakota Crossing will become the prominent name when referencing the entire neighborhood. Just my opinion, what do you think?
