WILL "GREAT WALL OF CHINATOWN" SCUTTLE POLLIN'S PLANS?
Published March 27, 1995
The plans for a new arena in downtown DC has created controversy among local Chinatown merchants. The arena proposal calls for a block-long 80-foot high blank wall along H Street, NW. Alfred Liu, a member of the Mayor's Task Force on Arena Planning and Design, said the design "seems quite cold and cruel to Chinatown. It's really insulting." Liu said there are some major flaws in the arena's new design, including a lack of entrances and exits on the Chinatown side of the arena, the large amount of retail space would compete with Chinatown food and retail businesses, and a lack of on-site parking (Thomas Hall, WASHINGTON BUSINESS JOURNAL, 3/30 issue).
