Some of these comments are ridiculous. Within five miles you can find homes worth more than 750k, so there are definitely folks in that area that can and will go to the stores and theater once built. About the poorer folks, every urbanized area has parts that are zoned for those demographics. Even old town Alexandria and the nicest parts in Arlington has poor zones. How about Brooklyn NY? the Bronx? i can go in and on about examples where there are areas not so desirable them they build something like this and the whole area just goes up from there. My only hope is when the project is finished they will have lots of green space/parks.
