Where's DC Safe Rail on Takoma Transit Oriented Development?

D.C. Safe Rail opposes the project to rebuild the freight rail tunnel under Virginia Avenue (with temporary open trench at lower grade) adjacent to a group of EYA townhouses constructed within the past decade.

What do they, and such allied groups as the 'Committee of 100 on the Federal City' have to say about the far more egregious case of new transit oriented development adjacent to an ELEVATED freight railroad in a different part of Washington, D.C. -Takoma?

 Elevation 314 next to elevated heavy freight rail at the Takoma Metro Station

Spring Place- with wood framed construction to reduce costs.
