To the editor:
I was sorry to read that the most recent Board of Architectural Review meeting regarding the proposed redevelopment of the Heritage Old Town site became contentious. But I was even more sorry to see that this proposal even made it to a BAR review.
Alexandria is the most densely populated city in the state of Virginia. Tearing down 244 units and replacing them with 777 units is a non-starter. Too big, too much. I give the BAR members credit for not standing up and walking out. I hope something happens to thwart the plans for the site – but looking around the rest of Old Town, I am not hopeful.
