Pretty interesting article in the Post the other day about parking at DCUSA. Basically, there's too much of it, as the garage is mostly empty. The Post attributes it to DC regulations about parking for commercial developments, but others imply it's due to demands from the businesses. Clearly the stores haven't adapted their plans to an urban location near transit.
The city is losing money on the garage, but at least the owners are trying to let community groups and others use the garage. Plus there have been other fun ideas, like roller skating. Let's hope something comes of it and that big boxes and cities learn you don't have to require so much parking.
Another odd thing is that the Post refers to DCUSA as a mall. I dunno about that.
