There is a vacant property adjacent to the entrance to Anacostia Park from the Fairlawn neighborhood that is currently zoned for commercial use and is the potential location for a future Cube Storage facility.
The residential neighborhood is fighting against a re-zoning request from Cube Storage to allow a commercial driveway that would make the project possible, instead arguing that the site should be zoned residential. In a recent letter to the Zoning Commission, the Fairlawn Citizens Association wrote:
