    I would like to. But it is all still so early that it doesn’t seem they are distributing materials. They do plan to restore F Street to the grid. G Street cannot be restored as a street but they still hope to restore it as a vista.

    Rob from the MVSNA attended both ANC meetings this month including the zoning meeting. He absorbed more of the details than I did and sent me this in an email:

    As they stated tonight, they are first submitting the master plan for the entire site and also the plan for the Phase 1 building at Mass Ave. The 395 entry/exit ramps would be re-aligned along 3rd Street (and 2nd Street) to go from street level to below grade to intersect with 395 in a more linear fashion and the 3rd Street entrance would be completely below grade by the time it reached the G Street intersection. The G Street instersection would be restored (as much as possible since the Federal building does jut into the right of way, nd then continue into a pedestrian walkway across over to 2nd Street (where it is already a plaza at the GW Law School property). At last week’s meeting there was a discussion about pulling the Law School’s permission to use the right-of-way to DC and return the full G Street vista.

    Phase 2 would include the rebuilding of the rectory annex and the Jewish synagoge as well as additional office space, retail, and housing. There were multiple levels of parking and all deliveries to all of the complex is done below grade. In addition, the building is planned to be certified “platinum” in terms of being a green building – and part of that includes filtering the air from the underground 395 through exhaust stacks … and collecting all runoff water as grey water for the complex.

    More details should be unveiled by Dreyfus over the coming months.

    Just out of curiosity, did they mention the height of the planned Phase 1 building at Mass Ave.?
