Bland, but that beats much of what has been built in the past few decades. The use fits a lot of adjacent current uses and it won't distract from the school. Having once taught across the street from the "L" in Chicago (noisy, old, heavy rail), I suspect a school can co-exist with a car barn. It sounds like the neighborhood already has commercial and industrial uses and that some of them are useful (auto shops) and some not abandoned strips. The best "rehab" in DC has come organically based on small business and neighborhood need. Given the distance from major intersections, this is likely to always have uses that are more marginal or ancillary to the area than say some place closer to Benning/Maryland/H.
