In 1979-1980, the Hillandale Development Corporation won approval to develop the former Archbold estate, located in the park to the west of 39th St and east of the present French embassy. While this area was marked on city planning maps for development, the Hillandale project was controversial because it was a limited-access, planned urban development (PUD). The Burleith Citizens Association negotiated (and litigated) with the developers to protect green space and limit additional traffic flow through Burleith. (The limited access funnels all Hillandale traffic towards 39th St). Posted here are some documents related to that process.
