dc.description.abstract A swell of moaning and groaning has been heard among Restonians following the determination by state officials that the first of two phases of Metrorail to Washington Dulles International Airport and beyond will end at Wiehle Avenue. No new rail yard is planned: trains will simply turn around and return. But major expansion of parking facilities is anticipated. “It’ll be a major mess,” pronounced one of my developer friends. What I see is a major opportunity. Instead of incremental growth over 40 years, as at Tysons Corner, a vertical, transit-oriented urban center at Wiehle, including residential, commercial and public uses, could be planned and constructed using roadway air-rights and adjacent properties in less than 10 years. Yes, this would increase required parking, but sound planning would fold all parking into the developed structure.
