Then there is "adjacent residents likely won't feel they are living right next to an industrial facility." This would be risible if it wasn't such an outrageous lie -- with the cars coming and going all day long, this clearly will feel like and industrial facility.

I'd be a little more sympathetic to this argument if there were more than a dozen people who lived anywhere near this site. Right now, the site's adjacent to a very small apartment complex, several auto shops, a completely vacant retail strip, several gas stations, an abandoned factory, two metrorail tracks, and a gigantic empty parking lot.

Benning Road *already* has an industrial character to it. This building may very well be the least industrial thing on that part of the street.

Get some perspective. "Cars coming and going all day long" sounds an awful lot like a street. Not a factory. The area is already a busy bus corridor, and is right next to the Orange Line. The streetcars will be significantly quieter than the buses and Metro trains.
