It’s a common D.C. commuter complaint: there is no Metro station in the heart of Georgetown. But for three years, leaders on both sides of the Potomac have been weighing an unconventional solution — a gondola that would connect Rosslyn’s Blue, Orange and Silver Lines with Georgetown’s bustling streets. Now, the dream of propelling thousands of people over the Key Bridge by aerial cables is being tested in a wide-ranging study supported by public and private entities.
The Georgetown - Rosslyn Gondola project seeks to link the two commercial districts and extend the Metrorail system via a new, high-speed transit connection. A team led by ZGF Architects will conduct a feasibility study that would identify and lay out the demand, financial, regulatory, design and real estate considerations of an aerial gondola lift. The Georgetown - Rosslyn Gondola project is an idea born out of the Georgetown Business Improvement District's Georgetown 2028 15 Year Action Plan for the commercial district. -Rosslyn-Georgetown Gondola Website
