County Board to Vote on Changes at Pentagon Row – ARLnow.com
Arlington County is going to vote of changes to Pentagon Row in my old Pentagon City neighborhood. The most welcome is a larger ice rink and a longer season for it.
The proposal includes plans to expand the length of the ice rink by 40 feet, add synthetic turf and add two 800 square foot freestanding retail structures. Approving the proposal would also add an additional month to the ice rink’s operating season, making it October through March, instead of November through March.
Synthetic turf? Not crazy about that, though I know somebody who might visit specifically because of that feature. Also, don’t they have enough retail that’s empty before adding more?
Sadly, I haven’t gotten out to the rink this year, I have probably run out of time. D’oh.
