Update: The Cafritz Foundation’s Art Place@Fort Totten: The Neighbors Are Deeply Confused

So finally, some uplifting news out of the Ft. Totten area: The Morris & Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation has conceived of a colossal development project for the neighborhood, complete with a Children’s Museum, 929 residential units (431 of which will be designated mixed-income, and 98 of which will be Senior/Affordable). The project, shown below, sits directly east of the metro stop, and Ft. Totten Station, Clark Realty’s 300 market-rate units. (Plenty more pictures below, and check back for more news later today.)
