Reston, Va. And The Legacy Of The Planned Suburb – The Kojo Nnamdi Show

I live in Columbia in Oakland Mills right beside the Town Center, I’ve visited Reston’s Town Center, and I work in Hyattsville where the Route 1 Corridor and the Prince George’s Plaza area is being redeveloped. Exciting stuff!

Fry said he’s more optimistic about this version of maglev than those of the past.

“The fact you have the Japanese government ready to make a significant investment certainly has changed the dynamics of that discussion,” he said.
