It's Monday, so the six men pile into an office about the size of a walk-in closet at the Laurel College Center. They mill about, scribble notes and crack juvenile jokes. Music fills the background. "Frank, I like my typist to be good-looking; you don't qualify," Lee Dumais Sr., said to a friend who was typing notes into a computer for him. "That's a fact," replied the friend, Frank Anatale.

Promoted as an economic engine, the project near the Metro station was proposed in 1998 as a "Main Street" hub where residents would live, shop and play. But development got only as far as the massive parking garage, built in 2007, that overlooks Interstate 795.
