  1. It would be interesting to see all these on a map, like a filtered version of the development map that only has dots for things in this post. Where is the Cochran property?

  2. Oh, there’s more detailed info in the PDF. You can add “Domain at College Park” and University View III/Village to the development map. Also the JPI Jefferson developments are no longer active. I think the development map is one of the coolest features on the site, though it doesn’t seem to be updated that often.

  3. Shawn,
    Yes I love the map feature as well. It is on our list to completely update the map. So stay tuned!
