ARLINGTON, Va. — A Virginia county has voted to demolish a building and parking garage that houses one of the most historic journalism sites of the past 50 years.
The Washington Post (http://wapo.st/1kWgjJW) reports the Arlington County Board voted unanimously Saturday to allow for demolition of the parking garage where FBI official Mark Felt met secretly with Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward during the Watergate investigation. Felt was known for decades as Woodward’s source “Deep Throat.”
Monday Properties plans to replace its two 12-story buildings in Rosslyn with a 28-story residential tower and a 24-story commercial building. The existing buildings will be razed no sooner than January 2017.
The county plans to save a historical marker it installed in 2011, and the landowner pledges to create a memorial to the Watergate history.
