@everyone who apparently enjoys Barry Farm (no s lol) in Anacostia- Ok cool. It was just a suggestion. You act as if public housing has never been closed and redeveloped as something else. As for the 400M plan that was supposed to replace the farm - I heard that fell through.

As for Landover not getting any better because of the stadium - well neither did near SE until OTHER things were placed there. But why were other things now flocking to the area. The stadium. Listen the Redskins stadium doesn't have to be the ONLY thing in Anacostia - it can be one of many but trust me, coffee shops and government building wont be enough to bring it back to life.

And yes DC is cut off by 295/395 but you see how much work is being done on the freeways? To redirect the bit that cuts off the waterfront would be costly but well worth it IMO. And DC does own a large portion of the waterfront land. Not ALL OF Buzzard Point, Blue Plains or the Navy Yard, but I believe they own most of it. i.e Anacostia park
