This Is What D.C. Would Look Like With Taller Buildings
Last week, as part of their congressionally mandated review of the 1910 Height of Buildings Act, the National Capital Planning Commission and D.C. Office of Planning unveiled a few images from their modeling study of what the District would look like under various changes to the law. Today, NCPC released a whole lot more. So here, to tickle your collective imagination, are views from a few vantage points of what the city's skyline could look like if the height limit were raised within the L'Enfant City (south of Florida Avenue and west of the Anacostia River), around the "topographic bowl" just outside the L'Enfant City, and at a few selected high-density clusters. Which do you like best—or hate most?
