Potomac Yard Redevelopment Approved

So, the city of Alexandria approved the Potomac Yard Redevelopment according to the Washington Post. On the surface, this appears to be a good news story. Although I like the grassy area along the railroad tracks, the additional metro station will be a boon to Alexandria residents and mixed-use area should attract businesses closer to DC.  That said, the devil will be in the details.  For instance, the entire project appears contingent on the completion - which requires funding - of the Metro stop.  Without that, the redevelopment could go in a different direction.  The Metro stop will require multiple assessments and fundraising.

Straight dope from the City of Alexandria's website....
