Style versus design in Potomac Yard

University of Maryland, professor emeritus of Architecture, Roger Lewis applauds the urban design but criticizes the architecture and affordability coming in south of East Glebe Road. We don't think he's looked at what's happening north of East Glebe in Potomac Yard (or north of West Glebe in Arlandria for that matter).

"Alexandria gets high planning marks for its efforts to manage and wisely shape dynamic growth in the city’s northeast. But I have one concern as growth continues: that architectural quality may not match urban design quality."
