Representing TOD

This is really cool. A developer in Maryland on a Metro line has decided he is going to show residents what he is going to do....with balloons!

North College Park residents concerned that six planned buildings at the Greenbelt Metro will not mesh with existing neighborhoods will get a chance to see just how high the buildings would be. Six balloons — outlining the height and width of the proposed structures — will be raised by developer Petrie Ross Ventures from 8:30 to 11 a.m. Saturday, giving residents a visual of what the buildings’ sizes.

I wonder if this will catch on.
