Last month, the city released a new vision for Rhode Island Avenue in Northeast. We read it, so you don’t have to.
The last section, subarea 4, is a petite span of Rhode Island Avenue, leading into sleepy Mt. Ranier. When all is said and done, D.C. will still not be wowing any Marylanders with its glorious amenities right across the border. The northeastern end of Rhode Island is getting minimal development: Just 132 new housing units will be added (compare that to nearly 2,000 in the first, albeit larger, subarea.)
Also: There will be more “expressive gateway art work which celebrates the entry into the Nation’s Capitol.”
That’s all folks!
