Rosslyn Process Panel event to focus on views from building tops

Join the Rosslyn Process Panel and the Realize Rosslyn project team on-site for this walk around the center of Rosslyn. We will be visiting the tops of several buildings in Rosslyn to better understand some of the issues and conditions to be addressed in developing potential strategies for future building heights and forms in Rosslyn. As we travel between buildings, there will be opportunities to point out and talk briefly about some of the draft plan framework elements and alternative approaches to them.
