This is an attempt to get an idea how the proposed plans for development at the Takoma Metro Station compare to the size of the apartments next door at 7036 Eastern Ave. 7036 is set back approximately 30 feet and is approximately 30 feet high.
The revised plan (November) heightens the impact on 7036 Eastern. The proposed building is set back about 10 feet and is about 40 feet high at its front, rising 10 feet about 10 feet back, and 20 feet about 20 feet back from there. Although the November plan is one story less, it is six stories along just about the entire length of 7036, instead of being 40 feet along the first half of it. Measurements for 7036 are from maps.google.com. -- Richard Holzsager
