I have spent a good deal of time in that area, and although removing the small parking lot isn't a bad thing, the pedestrian environment in that area and along the ful length of upper Connecticut Ave won't be improved until the avenue traffic is somehow tamed. The way the cars race and roar along currently it's about as pleasant for a pedestrian as walking on New York Ave, NE, or the GW Parkway. This one project alone can't control the speed or volume of traffic, but let's not pretend that the removal of one small parking area is any kind of triumph for the pedestrian.
