Planned GDS steps won’t benefit public
Georgetown Day School’s plans for its “Spanish Steps” from Wisconsin Avenue to 42nd Street NW will basically serve as nothing more than a fancy entryway to its schoolyard. The steps are no amenity for our neighborhood. In fact, the steps will likely be nothing but a mighty windy canyon between the two nine-story apartment buildings planned for Wisconsin.
It would be better to keep those buildings low and to open up Davenport Street so that parents can drop their kids off at school without blocking commuters on their way to work.
