it's a fine line between greening the city and suburbanizing it through green treatments. That's my concern about how K Street adjacent to CityVista has been treated. But these concepts sketches seem ok.

I will say that you have to be careful about applying the Chicago program to DC or at least anywhere in DC. The Chicago program is in neighborhoods. You're talking about alleyways serving commercial districts and commercial uses and that is much different.

Although there are a number of ways to make commercial alley pavements porous, which I think is the real issue.

This is an example, albeit a municipal parking lot, from Adrian Michigan.
