The surface lot parking operation at 300 K Street NW recently installed a fence along the northern edge of their lot. We inquired to the MVT CID which in turn contacted Berk Shervin of The Wilkes Company who replied “The fence work is intended to modestly improve the look and feel of the experience at 4th and K Street; specifically, to soften the transition from all of the terrific work DDOT completed on the streetscape to the commercial parking operation.”
Thankfully the materials selected for the fence installation were not your basic chain link fence. Despite being a stop gap improvement until the lot can be developed into a Mount Vernon Place office building, they invested in an aesthetically pleasing option.
