'Elevation 314' Deathtrap
The "Elevation 314" 'train wreck' dwellings built within the footprint of a heavy RR de-railment- the windows represent people's condos, mainly built within the footprint of a heavy RR de-railment and at a lower elevation.
Notably this was approved in 2002- AFTER 911 with its slight bit of brief lip-service to the concept of evacuation routes.

with then D.C. Council-member Adrian M. Fenty;
I once brought up this as a death trap to Fenty at a public meeting
only to have Fenty tell me to 'shut up'
