I completely agree that any new development needs to front East-West and the existing parking lot (hopefully to be a park). East-West doesn't have much going on, despite being so dense, largely because of bad development and planning. The whole strip on East-West between Collesvile and Georgia should be mixed use. Almost none of it is.

Scion could be a new chapter for South Silver Spring, as someone else mentioned. It could be a big boon for the street. The Veridian also has more potential and has been filling in over the last two years. Making a new Blairs complex that fronts East-West would be huge for South Silver Spring. Add in some parallel parking on East-West, and we'd have a real urban street.
