I lived for a time in the adjacent apartment building (the Park Connecticut). It has a pretty big parking garage and at peak times (weekend nights) it would maybe get 75-80% full. During the day it was mostly empty. There were a lot of embassy staffers who lived there and they all seemed to own cars.

That stretch of Conn. Ave is ripe for more development and replacing Van Ness Square is a good first step. I used to spend most of my nights walking down to Cleveland Park for restaurants or bars(would have loved to take the bus but the L-lines on Conn are among the worst I've experienced as far as dependability). I think it's only a matter of time. Next big target: the intelsat monstrosity.

I will say that I moved away as soon as I could--that area is such a wasteland. It's a shame, too, because its metro stop and proximity desirable neighborhoods give it some good natural advantages for urban living.
