Maybe I've been there at the wrong times of day (usually after 6PM), but the stretch of 410 between the Metro and Georgia Ave has always felt dead dead dead to me.

Apart from the Blairs, there's been a ton of new development there that has completely failed to enliven the streetscape in any way whatsoever.

I guess it doesn't help either that the block is isolated by the tracks on one side and the Giant on the other), which also has the odd effect of making it one of the longest uninterrupted city blocks in the DC area.

The walk from the Veridian to the Metro is theoretically quite short, but feels like an eternity because the streetscape is so dead and boring.

We hear a lot about heights and density, but it's definitely odd that Silver Spring's "downtown" is one of the least dense parts of the city.
