This is a little thought experiment, prompted by Town Staff’s continuing to push the idea of six-story buildings under MAC. Rather than fight that, I figure, what the heck, let’s just run with it. What would we get?
Best guess? A six-story MAC development on the Giant Food property would yield about 1400 new residents, or roughly an 8.5 percent increase in the population of the Town of Vienna. All in one place. And maybe a 15 percent increase in peak rush hour traffic on Maple?
Such is the power of medium-density housing.
