Building Heights: Taller Can Be Better

In an article defending the height of a proposed mixed-use project in Arlington, Greater Greater Washington’s Ryan Arnold recently made this important and compelling point:

The Washington region has folks who commute to DC from as far as West Virginia. Their daily journey illustrates a variety of serious problems we say we care about: affordable housing, suburban sprawl, oil consumption, high emissions, and traffic. When a commercial landowner seeks to add significant housing to a single-use site, they’re offering an opportunity to … Read More »

Housing Supply & Affordability

Markets work with housing much as they do with any other commodity: limited supply results in higher prices. Here in the DC Metro area, we have some of the highest housing costs in the country. Yet according to a 2011 study by the George Mason University Center for Regional Analysis, local jurisdictions aren’t planning for a sufficient number of residential units to house the estimated one million new workers expected by 2030. In Montgomery County, we expect to need about … Read More »

A Critical Moment for Transportation Funding in Maryland

Posted on by Miti Figueredo

Yesterday, the Maryland House Ways and Means Committee voted to approve HB 1515. This bill, proposed jointly by Governor O’Malley, Senate President Mike Miller and House Speaker Mike Busch, would raise about $3.4 billion in transportation revenue over the next five years. Without this funding package, we will have no money for any new transit, road or bridge projects beginning in 2017. Virginia recently passed its own transportation revenue package, and our elected leaders need to take similar steps to ensure … Read More »

Greater Greater Washington: Chevy Chase Lake plan compromises on density

Posted on by Miti Figueredo

The popular blog “Greater Greater Washington” usually covers land use planning and transportation issues in Washington, D.C. But this past Friday, Just Up the Pike’s Dan Reed posted an article about the Chevy Chase Lake Sector Plan that does a great job describing the plan’s history, and why the Planning Board’s recommendations for the Chevy Chase Land Company’s properties make sense. Preventing mixed-use development at this location–inside the beltway, adjacent to a future transit stop and near major job centers–won’t … Read More »

Bikeshare in Montgomery County – Update

Posted on by Miti Figueredo

Recently, the downcounty bikesharing program came one important step closer to implementation, when the Council approved a $2.4 million supplemental appropriation for the purchase of bike sharing stations near the Friendship Heights, Bethesda, Medical Center, Silver Spring and Takoma Park Metrorail Stations. This funding includes the Chevy Chase Land Company’s contribution for the purchase of the two stations in Friendship Heights and Bethesda. Eventually, we expect that the bikeshare program will expand and include a station in Chevy Chase Lake … Read More »
