In response to Chris at 302PM it would be nice to find ways to squeeze in recreational amenities in some of these projects.

Why not go up to 9 stories here (this building borders on no homes on any side so if there is a place for density with no neighbors to complain this is it) and remove some of the units in the substructure inside the southern courtyard in the back and put in a public swimming pool there instead?

How nice would it be to have an outdoor swimming pool in upper NW that overlooked Rock Creek Park?

Is there a reason we should have to go to a private swim club in Bethesda to sit outside at the pool in the summer with some trees in view?

Let's go up here and create some more space on the ground that could be used for something for the community.

I'd certainly be curious if the developer is again choosing to do a Matter of Right project because it is the course of least resistance even though if ever there was a location for some more height this would be it.
