Columbia Pike is at a crossroads. On one hand, the corridor is still wonderfully diverse and affordable. On the other hand, new development is bringing luxury apartments and new retail options to the area.
The smart growth-oriented county board is thus stuck in a bit of a paradox. While it funds redevelopment and a new streetcar line, it’s also talking about spending to preserve affordable housing on the Pike.
The Pike certainly has its flaws — crime, lack of bike access, some undesirable land use — but it also has unique qualities that make it a great place to live — diversity, character-filled restaurants and shops, a strong sense of local identity.
With that in mind, we ask:
