Chris- hence my suggestion that they go up and do a PUD - they get more units with the taller building and the amenity is a public swimming people that would also be available for the residents and assuming they handed it off to DPR would be a possible long term cost savings for the developer as they don't have to build/maintain/insure the pool - also having worked as a lifeguard in many of these rooftop pools in DC 20 years ago I can tell you that they are almost completely unused during the week so it is just a wasted resource.

So looking at the overhead shot and seeing a pool on the roof in a part of the city that lacks an outdoor pool it strikes me as a bad investment and a lost opportunity.

But the bowling alley could be a private for profit venture and it is another example of the type of thing that folks in the city typically have to leave the city to find (and yes I know about Strike or whatever it is called).
