As requested I have attached my presentation from tonight’s ANC 5C Meeting titled, “What are community benefits.” It is intended to serve as a guide to identifying the elements of strong & weak community benefits when negotiating with Developers.
Against my better judgment, and due to the lack of development news, I have decided to share some of the renderings I am working on. My “sim city” of sorts depicts my vision for Fort Lincoln and the Washington Gateway as a true gateway (which it is) to the city. The renderings above depict a mixed used retail, hospitality, and large meeting space development as an anchor to a revitalized Industrial/Office park (Industrial/Office park not shown). It also features light rail with a dedicated parking garage which would serve portions of South Dakota and New York Avenues to help relieve traffic. In addition, the light rail will serve as a direct connection to the city center for visitors who have hotel accommodations at the District Gateway as well as access to other developments along the NY Ave Corridor. Let me know what your thoughts are?
Disclaimer: Please be advise that these renderings/ideas are just my hobby and are for fun. The renderings and ideas shown do not represent the intent of the current or future land owners, city officials, developers, architects, neither private nor public. I am also not an employee of any of the aforementioned entities.
