Dramatic plan for area South of the Mall

In a nice piece of reporting, the Washington Post has a lengthy explanation of a series of proposals intended to improve the "monumental core" with an enhanced system of linkages and views. Their graphics and details are intriguing although I see almost no mention of how this would be paid for. We stopped in this area a few weeks ago and I couldn't help but notice how poorly maintained some of the public spaces were. It will be interesting to see if even the basic framework of this proposal can happen.
