CP: NCPC Weighs In on Burnham Place

Housing Complex reports on the National Capital Planning Commission's reponse to Burham Place (the over the track development surrounding the hopscotch bridge). Basically, NCPC is concerned about allowing the Zoning Commission to measure the base height from the bridge instead of from the ground. NCPC worries that it would not be in keeping with the character of what NCPC calls our "horizontal city." This project is mixed use, and 3 million (!) square feet. Any thoughts on this one? Here's an aerial view.
